  3. Add the tortilla chips to a large baking sheet. Spread into an even layer.
  4. Spoon on the refried beans. Spread the taco meat on top. Sprinkle with corn, olives, black beans, salsa and shredded cheese. If using fresh jalapeno add it now so it roasts. Canned or jarred jalapenos can be added after baking.

Tips for making Sheet Pan Nachos:

  • Layering: Make sure your base is chips, cheese and then beans and toppings. Toppings will go on once the nachos are cooked and cooled out of the oven.
  • Chips: I prefer a harder tortilla chip. Tortilla chips should be thick and sturdy to with stand the high temperatures and layers of toppings.
  • Cheese: If possible, it is best to shred your cheese instead of purchasing pre-shredded cheese.
  • Protein: Try shredded chicken, steak or pulled pork for delicious variations.
  • Using a Large Skillet: The skillet will cook the same in the oven and can still be served the same way in the skillet.
  • How to reheat nachos? Place sheet pan back in the oven or warm gradually in the microwave.

Toppings when making Nachos:

  • Cheese: queso, nacho cheese, Monterrey Jack cheese or Mexican blend
  • Beans (black, refried, pinto)
  • Salsa (red or green)
  • Guacamole
  • Pico de gallo
  • Radishes
  • Lime juice
  • Protein: Shredded chicken or taco meat Meat (ground beef, steak, chicken, or pulled pork)
  • Green Chiles
  • Onions
  • Avocados or Guacamole

  1. Made these tonight. Delicious! We made 2 layers. We took them out of the oven much sooner than callef for. Will make again! Thank you!

  2. The thing I love most about this recipe is that it doesn’t call for cheese SAUCE. I am a big fan of nachos, but 9.83276 times out of 10 I won’t order them in a restaurant, because they “cheat” and throw cheese sauce on them rather than just melted cheese. Now, don’t get me wrong; I think cheese sauce has its place in the world (spray cheese, on the other hand, needs to go) — but it’s NOT ON NACHOS!

    Cheers, and thanks for the dinner inspiration for tonight!

  3. 5 stars
