Fast and Fabulous Nachos!

These Nachos are a fast and easy meal for a warm summer night. Like most non-vegans I used to love to top my nachos with sour cream, cheese and a rich meaty sauce. After a bowl I would feel heavy and uncomfortable. But after a bowl of these yummy vegan nachos I feel satisfied, light and ready for a delish dessert!
