Happy Labor Day! Can you believe we’re already in September?! Before you know it, I’ll be frantically putting together a Thanksgiving menu right before the holidays!

But before I bring out the pumpkin recipes in full mode, I have a very special recipe that is an absolute must for your Labor Day party spread (or for dinner on a Friday night if you’re like me!). Here we have an oh-so-cheesy meatless nacho dish with both black beans AND refried beans. Plus, you can’t forget about the garnished avocados and pickled jalapeños.

This dish comes together so quickly, and you’re free to add whatever toppings your heart desires without any skimping on the good stuff – bacon, shrimp, chorizo, Sriracha – the sky’s the limit!
