Here's the thing, too. These don't have cheese in them.
I'm keeping it quiet, because cheese is one of my oldest and dearest friends. And I don't want to hurt its feelings.
But you know, some foods have enough stuff going on that they just don't need cheese.
Shh! Hear me out.
Mexican food, with its lime, its cilantro, its salsa, its guac, its raw white onion. Leave the cheese off, you won't even notice.
Observe that the most authentic Mexican food at most only uses a sprinkling of queso cotija. It's a condiment, a light sprinkling.
In the summer I like my dishes light (if you can call something with guacamole and a fried egg on it light).
But please don't tell cheese - we have a scheduled rendezvous coming soon, and I wouldn't want things to get awkward.
Dairy-Free Breakfast Nachos
chopped white onion
1 can black beans
The nice thing about nachos is you really can make them to taste. I created the guacamole here by mashing up avocado, lime juice and salt (about 1/2 lime and a generous pinch of salt per avocado). Put it together how you like, fry an egg and put it on top. Ta da! Breakfast.
