An easy nachos recipe your family will love

Sheet Pan Nachos are something my family enjoys a lot. But I always thought it was such a basic recipe that people didn’t need instruction. Friends know nachos are my favorite food group and often ask me for tips.

So I decided to share this stress-free dinner solution. Loaded nachos have all your favorite taco night flavors but require less hands-on time.

While being an awesome hearty appetizer for tailgating and game-day parties, nachos also make a great entree. Especially when made on a sheet pan, it’s a great main course on a busy weeknight.

I’m going to show you how I make them crispy and delicious. All nachos are delicious, but some are extraordinary (and still super easy!)

Preheat the broiler on high.

Step 1

Add O Organics Grass Fed Ground Beef to a skillet and add taco seasoning. Cook, breaking up meat until no longer pink and cooked through.

Drain on a plate with a few paper towels.

Step 2

Lay out a single layer of O Organics Blue Corn Tortilla Chips on a sheet pan.

*It’s better to fill two sheet pans with chips in a single layer rather than layer the chips on top of each other.

Step 3

Add a layer of O Organics Mexican Style Blend Shredded cheese to the top of the chips (includes Monterey Jack, Colby Jack and Cheddar cheeses).

It’s super flavorful and the fine shred ensures even melting.

Step 4

Add the seasoned ground beef to the chips and cheese on a sheet pan.

Step 5

Carefully put your sheet pan in the broiler. Watch carefully as the cheese will melt quickly.

Typically, one end will melt quicker than the other end so I turn the cookie sheet around half way through cooking.

The total cooking time is about 2-3 minutes.

The broiler helps to keep the chips crispy. Just make sure they don’t burn.

You can make them in the oven if you prefer. If you do, you will want to bake just the tray of chips and cheese for about 10 minutes, until well melted.

Step 6

With the cheese melted and the chips crisp, you’re ready to add cold or fresh toppings.

I added shredded lettuce (which I bought pre-shredded to save time), tomatoes, sour cream and cilantro.

I love the crunch that the lettuce gives. And the fresh cilantro is always a great way to add extra flavor.

Nachos are such a versatile idea. We typically make ours with Mexican flavors with seasoned ground beef and taco toppings.

But you can easily turn your favorite meals into Sheet Pan Nachos. Next time I’m going to try a BBQ Chicken style recipe.

You can also make the salsa chicken from my Walking Tacos recipe and use that.

You can even put different toppings on specific parts of the sheet pan to suit specific family members.

A sheet pan of nachos is plenty to serve my family of 4. Especially with a side dish.

You can even make the ground beef ahead of time making this even easier to put together for dinner.

What to Serve with Sheet Pan Nachos

I’m also serving O Organics Quinoa & Brown Rice with Garlic 90 Seconds microwavable side dish. It only took 90 seconds and was a great accompaniment.

You can also serve it with things like Spanish rice, black bean salad, or a corn salad.

For dessert, serve my Ice Cream Nachos!
