Nachos

The ultimate loaded nachos is my favorite go to when all I want to make is something easy and simple. These nachos come together in minutes. They are Uber delicious and absolutely easy to put together and I am so love in love with them.

These nachos are vegetarian, loaded with black beans, red, and green bell peppers, caramelized onions, topped with lots and lots of cheese, tomatoes, jalepēnos, avocados, cilantro, onions, and scallions. And lastly drizzled with some delicious and creamy lime crema.

What are some other toppings for Nachos?

I love adding grilled sweet corn, paneer, pickled onions, shitake mushrooms, crumbled tofu or paneer, pinto beans, olives, pica de gallo, sour cream and guacomole. The possibilities are endless, and you can add anything and everything that you love.

Are Nachos Baked or Fried?

Nachos are baked but the chips are fried. You can avoid using fried chips and substitute them with baked chips to make them completely baked.

What is the best cheese to use?

While I love using the 4 cheese Mexican blend for nachos, you can use any cheese you like. I love cheddar cheese the most other than 4 cheese Mexican Blend.

Notes

  1. You can prep the veggies and the beans ahead of time to make these nachos. This will save you time at the time of preparing them.
  2. Nachos don’t taste good when they are soggy, so  make one sheet pan at a time if you think you won’t be needing a big quantity.
  3. If you are making for lesser number of people, feel free to cut the recipe in half.
  4. To reheat the nachos, with toppings, place them in the oven at 400F for 5-7 mins. I don’t suggest to do this, but if you absolutely have to, you can do this.
