Bean and Lentil Waffle Fry "Nachos"
with lettuce / cheese / sour cream

Active: 35 min Total: 35 min
We couldn't resist jumping on the trend to use waffle fries instead of chips as a base for nachos. These "nachos" with lentils and soyrizo come together fast and are easy to customize with your favorite toppings.
Smarts: In testing we liked frozen waffle fries (Alexia makes a sweet potato waffle fry that was great here) as a base for their ability to hold up to toppings, but you could try these with tater tots or other frozen fries if you'd like to experiment! Tortilla chips will work too.

Make

  1. Cook waffle fries according to package directions (if using tortilla chips heat oven to 350F / 177C degrees; spread chips out onto a sheet pan, but do not cook until you have added toppings).
  2. While sweet potato fries cook, heat a saute pan over medium-high heat. Add oil and then onions to heated oil. Saute until tender, 2 to 3 minutes. Add soyrizo and break it apart as it cooks, until it begins to brown on the bottom of the pan, 3 minutes more. Stir in beans and lentils until heated through.
  3. When fries are cooked, remove pan from oven and turn on oven's broiler (skip this step if using tortilla chips).
  4. Top fries (or chips) with soyrizo / lentil mixture and cheese. Place under the broiler and broil until cheese is melted, 3 to 4 minutes (watch the nachos closely so they don't burn).
  5. Finish nachos with a squeeze of lime juice and cilantro. Serve with lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream and salsa at the table so that everyone can customize. Enjoy!
