INGREDIENTS FOR SHEET PAN NACHOS

A tray of food, with Nachos and Sheet pan

You will need:

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 package of taco seasoning
  • 1 13 ounce bag of tortilla chips
  • ½ cup water
  • Fresh tomatoes
  • ½ cup of red onion
  • Fresh cilantro
  • 2 cups shredded cheese
  • Jalapeños
  • Black olives
  • Sour cream

INGREDIENT SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

PROTEIN: You can easily spice up these nachos by adding extra protein or substituting the ground beef for a different type of protein. We love to add chorizo to our sheet pan nachos! Some other great options are shredded chicken or carnitas pulled pork. If you’re looking for a vegetarian option you could take off the meat altogether and add black beans instead.

CHEESE: You could pretty much use any type of shredded cheese in your nachos. For those looking for a bit more spice I recommend trying pepperjack or Mexican blend. If you want classic nachos go with cheddar. Some others to try out include colby jack or mozzarella.

TOPPINGS: The great thing about nachos is their versatility. When it comes to toppings, the sky’s the limit. You can take off any of the items listed above, if you’re not a fan. You can also add any of your favorite toppings such as pico de gallo, guacamole, fresh avocado, green onions, or beans.

HOW TO MAKE SHEET PAN NACHOS IN THE OVEN

STEP ONE: Cook ground beef on medium heat until browned. Drain if needed.

Storing & Reheating

IN THE FRIDGE

Nachos are truly best when served fresh, but if you have any leftovers here is how I would recommend to store them. Lift the nachos carefully from the pan (it sometimes helps to use a spatula) and place them into a tupperware container with an airtight lid. They will keep in the fridge for up to 3 days.

REHEATING

Reheating nachos so that they aren’t soggy and taste like they are leftover can be quite the trick. We have found that the oven is the best option for reheating nachos like a pro.

First, we recommend scraping off any cold toppings you might have on your nachos (like sour cream or lettuce) Then, preheat the oven to 225 degrees and place them on an oven-safe plate. Cover the nachos with aluminum foil and reheat in the oven for about 15-20 minutes.
