Nachos, Chocolate Cake

Well, it's been a few days since I've blogged but honestly its been days since I stepped into the kitchen since I started a new job. I work at a local natural foods grocery store as a receiver/stocker which requires me to be on my feet (walking, standing, lifting, climbing, etc) so by the time I make it home I can hardly stand to be on my feet.
I did work today but decided to make some simple nachos. I made a pinto bean mixture with cumin, chili powder, chipotle powder, sea salt, garlic, black pepper and agave nectar all mashed up a bit. I spread some blue corn chips on a baking sheet, topped the chips with the pinto bean mixture and topped them with Vegan Cheddar. I broiled the nachos but the "cheese" didn't melt which was okay because we actually enjoyed the taste and didn't miss the meltiness at all. Once broiled they were topped with tomatoes, salsa, sweet onions and sweet thai chili sauce.

I also got a slice of vegan chocolate cake from work today that has chocolate cream "cheese" icing. Oh my goodness!

We liked it on the nachos. It doesn't melt at all but it was nice and firm . . . not watery. We'd buy it again.
