How to Make It
    For Vegan Bacon Bits
  1. In a bowl, add the soy granule, liquid smoke, soy sauce, salt, and paprika powder. Pour in the hot water and stir to combine. Let the soy granule soak for 5 minutes until soft.
  2. In a pan, heat the canola oil and add in the softened soy granule. Cook on medium to high heat until crispy. If the soy granule starts to stick to the pan, add more canola oil.
  3. Transfer the granule onto paper towels to remove excess oil.
  4. For Nacho Cheese Sauce
  5. Heat the coconut oil or butter in a small pot over low heat.
  6. Add in the salt, pepper, paprika powder, curry powder, and garlic powder.
  7. Add in the flour and whisk, then add in nutritional yeast and whisk again until clumpy.
  8. Add in the water and whisk on low heat for a few minutes until cheese sauce gets gooey. If sauce is too thick, add in more water and whisk again.
  9. To Assemble
  10. Transfer tortilla chips onto a large plate, top with the nacho cheese sauce, vegan bacon bits, corn, avocado, cherry tomatoes, and sprinkle with the chopped scallions. Enjoy!
