Why I love them

This recipe is perfect to serve as an app or take to a potluck. Using cauliflower instead of tortilla chips adds extra vitamins and nutrients, and offers a lower carb and fat version. 


1 head of cauliflower 

Taco seasoning

1 can black beans, rinsed and drained

1 can yellow corn, rinsed and drained

1 jalapeño

1 bag vegan cheddar cheese

Red onion, diced

Pico de Gallo 




  1. First preheat oven to 425F and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper
  2. Cut cauliflower into 1/2 in ‘steaks’ and then break into natural chip like pieces
  3. Spread the pieces of cauliflower apart on baking sheet, spray with oil and sprinkle with taco seasoning
  4. Bake for 25 min 
  5. Remove from the oven and squish all the cauliflower into the center of the cookie sheet *at this time, if you’d like to add some tortilla chips on one half of the baking sheet, you can do so!
  6. Top with beans, corn, cheese, and jalapeno
  7. Bake for 6 more min, then switch oven to broil and broil on high for 2-3 min
