Bell Pepper Nachos with 1-Minute Cheese Sauce

All the nachos with none the carbs! This keto, gluten-free, low-carb take on nachos is vegetarian friendly and super easy to make with a quick and easy foolproof cheese sauce.


1-Minute Cheese Sauce
½ cup half and half
2 ounces cream cheese
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
Salt to taste
Mushroom Taco Meat
1 tablespoon oil
8 ounces mushrooms, chopped
1 tablespoon taco seasoning
Bell Pepper Nachos
3 bell peppers
Mushroom Taco Meat
¼ cup shredded cheddar cheese
1-Minute Cheese Sauce
4 ounces guacamole
4 ounces pico de gallo salsa
2 ounces sour cream
1 tablespoon chopped cilantro


1-Minute Cheese Sauce

Warm ½ cup half and half over a medium-low heat in a medium saucepan. Add 2 ounces cream cheese and whisk until incorporated.

Turn heat to low, and add a fourth of the 1 cup cheddar cheese. Mix to combine, then add another fourth, repeating until all ingredients are combined.

Mix in the ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper.

Mushroom Taco Meat

Warm 1 tablespoon oil in a medium saute pan.

Add 8 ounces chopped mushrooms and turn heat to medium. Once mushrooms begin to sweat, add in 1 tablespoon taco seasoning. Stir until the shrooms are fully coated. Cook until mushrooms have reduced by over half.

Bell Pepper Nachos

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Take 3 bell peppers (I recommend sweet ones like reds, yellows, and oranges), and slice them down the side lengthwise to create “chips.”

Place the peppers on a quarter-sized baking sheet, with the inside of the pepper facing up, to form cups.

Divide the Mushroom Taco Meat between the bell pepper chips. Do the same with the ¼ cup shredded cheese.

Place baking sheet in the preheated oven and bake for 10 minutes.

Remove baking sheet from oven. Top the peppers off with the 1-Minute Cheese Sauce, 4 ounces of guacamole, 4 ounces of pico de gallo salsa, and 2 ounces of sour cream.

Finish off with 1 tablespoon of chopped cilantro and enjoy!
