Dairy Free Nachos

GFCF Nachos. Upside Down Chicken Nachos to be exact.
(Sorry Vegan friends! However, you will love the cheese and sour cream used.)

One boy loved these and the other ate about two bites. Which is no reflection of the meal, that's just how he rolls at dinner time. Throughout the day it's impossible to fill him up, yet come dinner, he's all hunger strike like.

So, the original recipe for the Upside Down Chicken Nachos came from here. A GF blog...wuhoo! I tweaked it just a bit to fit our eating regime.

Tasty dairy free, soy free, casein free cheese.
Salsa of choice.

"Sour Cream Recipe"
10 oz soft tofu and 1/2 cup water
1/2 cup raw cashews
1 TBSP lemon juice
1 tsp sea salt
1 tsp onion powder
1 TBSP dried chives

Place all in blender, except chives. Blend 1 min until silky smooth. Add the chives. Mix briefly or you'll have green sour cream! Thickens more if chilled.



  1. I LOVE Daiya cheese!! Actually, WE love it. We've been dairy free for a little while now, and thanks to Daiya, it's been increadibly easy for the kids. We can still have pizza, quessadillas, or anything we like.

    I'm looking forward to trying your sour cream recipe. I've made cashew sour cream before, but it was a bit too thick. I think your recipe would have just the right texture. Thanks for sharing :) By the way, I posted a recipe of GFCF mac and cheese on my food blog, using Daiya. I don't know if you've tried mac and cheese with it, but it works like a charm :)

  2. Wow, these are making my mouth water...;)

    We have fallen off all our wagons. Been on a cheese bender! Now I'm feeling the need to clean up our act.
