Nacho Baked Potato

Andrea Duclos/The Plantiful Table, The Experiment Publishing

  • An incredibly fun and tasty meal that everyone will devour! Andrea Duclos

Makes one potato


1 large baking potato
1 1/2 teaspoons nutritional yeast (optional)
1/2 cup black beans, either canned or prepared as directed for black beans
1/4 cup salsa of your choice
1/4 to 1/2 avocado, cubed, sliced or smashed
Salt and black pepper to taste
Cilantro for garnish
Lime wedges for garnish


1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees if baking the potato (rather than microwaving it).

2. Pierce the potato with a fork or knife a few times to allow the steam to escape. Bake in the oven for about 40 minutes, or microwave for 4 to 6 minutes, depending on the size of the potato. Pierce the potato with a fork or knife to check if it is soft and cooked through.

3. When the potato is done, slice it open and sprinkle on the nutritional yeast, if using.

4. Layer on the black beans, salsa and avocado. Season with salt and pepper, if using, and garnish with cilantro and lime.
