If you’ve been around here for a while, maybe you know that one of my favorite things to do is put new twists on old favourites. Which is why you’ll see no ground beef on what I’m claiming to be the best nachos. (Although I put some beef on these here BBQ Bacon Cheeseburger Nachos so you know I’m not opposed!)

But if you can get over your shock I promise you, you won’t regret it. Regular beef nachos are great, sure, but put a tray of these on the table for your Super Bowl LII party? I guarantee you you’ll be the real winner 😉 (<– too much??).

I confess, I’m a bit of a homebody. But I love having people over.

What I don’t love? Spending all day in the kitchen and missing out on all the fun! Nachos are one of the easiest things to whip up for Super Bowl snacks or a quick weeknight dinner — just grab a bag of Tostitos, some cheese and whatever toppings you can find.

I love to load mine right up so we can count them as dinner (and who’s not down for a handheld meal??).

So whether you’re hosting the ultimate Super Bowl LII party or it’s just you and the hubs binging on Netflix after the kids are in bed, I’ve got 3 ridiculously awesome options for you down below 😉

Here are some tips for How to Make the Best Nachos:

  • Start with a big, rimmed baking sheet and a piece of parchment paper — you don’t want any of that cheesy goodness being left behind on the pan!
  • Add the cheese before your other toppings, and a little on top for good measure — If you are adding a drizzle of sauce like I have on these, the cheese keeps the chips from getting soggy and acts as glue to make sure every bite is loaded!
  • Mix things up — no need to stick to any recipe! Add veggies, meats, and different cheeses to make them your own.
