Looking for a dish that has all the flavor without the fuss? We’ve got you covered with nacho recipes that make snacking like a pro easy while you’re rooting for your team during your basketball tournament watch party. Carnitas Nachos? Check. Loaded Nachos? Check. And try our Greek Nachos too. We’ll fill you in on how to make the perfect nacho layers, what oven temperature gives you just the right amount of ooey, gooey deliciousness and more.

Nacho Tips & Tricks

With all the ways to make nachos, they’re truly a snack that never gets old. One of the easiest ways to make this crowd-pleasing dish is in the oven. You simply layer and load all your ingredients onto a sheet pan, pop it in the oven and serve. Try our fan-favorite BBQ Nachos or our Vegetarian Sheet Pan Cheeseburger Sweet Potato Fries. Of course, temperature and cooking times will vary by recipe, but we’ve found that 350°F-400°F works best for most nachos. Another simple and delicious variety is our Nacho Skillet recipe. It's a win-win for all players involved, especially the clean-up crew.

Nacho Toppings

The best part of nachos? Mixing and matching the toppings. From traditional guacamole, shredded lettuce and fresh jalapeño slices to cubed steak, shredded chicken and crumbled tofu, there’s really no wrong topping when it comes to nachos. Not sure which nacho ingredients to load up on? Try our Black Bean and Chorizo Sheet Pan Nachos. This is “nacho” average recipe. It’s piled high with chorizo, black beans, melted cheese, avocado and a cilantro cream.

Lighter Bites

Want to feel better about filling up on game day? Swap the tortilla chips for something more fresh and our Bell Pepper Nachos or Grilled Zucchini Nachos. Or you can keep your chip game going strong with our Organic Sweet Potato Chicken Nachos. These homemade nachos are lighter, organic and piled high with sweet potato tortilla chips, salsa-seasoned shredded chicken and more of your favorite fixings.
