1 tablespoon vegetable oil
3/4 pound vegan chorizo
1 recipe Vegan Nacho Cheese Sauce
1 (15-ounce) can black beans, drained and rinsed
2 (10-ounce) cans Ro*Tel Diced Tomatoes with Green Chilies, drained (see note)
3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro leaves, plus more for garnish
4 scallions, thinly sliced, plus more for garnish
1 avocado, finely diced
1 serrano or jalapeño pepper, minced (reserve a few whole slices for garnish, if desired)
Hot sauce, to taste
1 bag tortilla chips
Heat vegetable oil in a medium saucepan over high heat until shimmering. Add chorizo and cook, stirring frequently, until well browned and slightly dry, about 10 minutes. Remove 2 tablespoons and set aside for garnish.
Add cheese dip, black beans (reserving 2 tablespoons for garnish), tomatoes, cilantro, scallions, avocado, and minced serrano or jalapeño and stir to combine. Stir in hot sauce to taste. Heat, stirring, until hot.
Transfer to a warm serving bowl. Garnish with reserved chorizo, black beans, cilantro, and scallions, and serve immediately with tortilla chips.
If Ro*Tel tomatoes are unavailable, substitute with 1 (15-ounce) can drained diced tomatoes, mixed with 1 (4-ounce) can chopped drained green chilies.
