You've got a hoard of people coming over to watch the big game and boy, are they going to be hungry! These nachos are gluten free and loaded with veggies: spinach, avocado, cilantro and salsa. Sesame seeds give them some crunch. If you've got some extra time, swap the jarred salsa for freshly made Game Day Salsa. The nachos are also dairy-free, so guests with multiple allergies can enjoy this savory, melted delight too.
