Pot pies are a savory dish encased inside two flaky pastry crusts. This dish doesn’t have a crust at all, so technically it’s a casserole, but here’s the thing about that – I don’t care. I like to say “tot pot pie” and there is nothing anyone on this earth can do to stop me. Nothing. I might be small, but I’m quick with an eye-poke and I have burned bridges over things way more petty than this, so let’s not come to blows over me calling a casserole a pot pie, OK?
Anyway, this recipe uses my Vegan Nacho Chee-Zee Sauce recipe, minus the chipotle pepper. Although, if you want a spicy “nacho tot pot pie” then ya know, go ahead.
