Deluxe Oven Nachos {recipe}

Deluxe Oven Nachos Recipe

This recipe is perfect to use for a 'nacho bar' for game day. Your guests can grab whatever size portion they wish and load on their favorite toppings. And best of all, it's only about 20 minutes of prep and cook time! 
The recipe below serves 3 dinner-sized portions. Use that as a reference when planning for a party.

What You Will Need
1 bag of tortilla chips 
*(I LOVE using "On the Border" when making homemade nachos)
1 pound ground beef/turkey
1 bag of taco seasoning
2 cups shredded Mexican/nacho cheese

Topping Options
Shredded lettuce
Sliced black olives
Diced tomatoes
 Sour cream 
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 12x18-inch baking sheet with foil. Set aside.

2. In a large skillet, brown meat. Drain grease. Add taco seasoning packet, following the instructions on the packet. (Or add your own spices per preference).

 3. Line baking sheet with a layer of tortilla chips, some should overlap. Top with cooked meat and shredded cheese, making sure they are distributed evenly over the chips.  

4. Place in oven for 10-12 minutes. 

5. Carefully remove nachos from oven. Using a spatula and your hands, divide up the nachos onto individual plates. Add toppings and ENJOY!

What are your favorite nacho toppings? Do you ever make homemade nachos?


  1. Thanks for much for stopping by and sharing! It is also super good with barbeque pulled chicken. I used leftovers from sandwiches once and I was in food heaven!

  2. It's the guacamole! I could eat it all day. Just add tons of guac, then the nachos are suddenly healthy! No guilt and

  3. Julia these look delicious, simple and done in a minute! These will be making it to our Super Bowl table. Being a pescaterian I may have to omit the turkey meat and pile the guacamole up high! Thanks for sharing. Pinned on

    I'm not going to lie! I used to love me some nachos! I've made a homemade sauce with black beans and my husband loved it! He wants to lose a little weight in the tummy area right now though so I can't make that or as I typically do, I will have to find ways to make it healthier :) Thanks for sharing this with us at Countdown in Style! Don't forget to stop by Friday to see if you are featured :)

    Can you make it without the chips? I often will use lettuce instead.

  8. I'm drooling over here...and missing American food!

  9. Yea I am not sure I could do the English food. Only from what you have shared, it seems that it would take a while to get used to! Do they have any ethnic restaurants or food stores, like Mexican, America, etc?
