BBQ Tempeh Nachos

I have a new favorite quick meal for the end of a long day!  I have been very busy at work lately, and this is the easiest meal I've made in quite some time.  This recipe is for one person, but can also be scaled up to feed more people - or if you make this with other food (instead of being a tired grad student like me), this much nacho filling would be plenty as an appetizer for a few people!

BBQ Tempeh Nachos

1/2 block tempeh
cooking spray (like Pam)
Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce
Shredded cheese (I used 2% milk Mexican cheese)

4 small corn tortillas
cooking spray, salt, & pepper


Cut corn tortillas into wedges with a pizza cutter.  Spray both sides of wedges with cooking spray, then spread out on a pizza pan.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper, then bake at 400 F for 10 minutes or until chips are crispy.

While wedges are cooking, heat a pan over medium heat and add cooking spray.  Once pan is warm, crumble 1/2 block of tempeh into the pan.  Heat for 3-5 minutes or until crumbles are warmed through and beginning to brown.  Add BBQ sauce to taste, diluting a bit with water.  Cook for 2 more minutes or until the entire mixture is warm and the sauce is beginning to thicken.

Serve tempeh filling with corn tortilla nachos.  Major yum :)
