Cheesy Cauliflower Nachos

Nachos make me weak in the knees. The thought of melty cheese, zesty salsa, and creamy guacamole — frankly, it doesn’t get much better than that.

This Cheesy Cauliflower Nachos recipe is a great way to indulge in your nacho cravings, without heaps of unnecessary salt and fat.

Cauliflower, a good source of vitamin C, vitamin K, and folate, is one of those magical vegetables that redefines how we think about “junk food.”
