Homemade Nachos Recipe

Everyone has their ideal comfort food. A food that they could eat all day every day and a food that just makes everything better. For me, it’s nachos. I could eat those Mexican crisps and toppings every single day and never get bored and one thing we love as a family is making nachos for dinner. They’re a regular feature on our meal plans and something the children get really excited about.

Recipe: Homemade Nachos

Some people love having beef chilli as a nachos topping but we always have it on the side so it doesn’t make the nachos too soggy. However, if you like having chilli with it you can simply cook some ground beef with taco seasoning, tomatoes and tomato puree and some kidney beans for a really simple chilli.

What else can I add to home made nachos?

We have easy nachos with chilli con carne instead of rice and it’s something the children love as well. There’s something really exciting about having crisps for dinner! If you like you can add more toppings to this once cooked – sour cream, black beans, spicy chicken, refried beans, jalapenos – anything to make the nachos as delicious as possible and so easy to throw together.

To bake nachos takes just minutes and it’s one of the easiest recipes you can have, Plus, whilst the nachos are baking, enjoy a glass of wine and the extra time that you’ve saved by not spending hours in the kitchen! They’re such a wonderful summer dish but we enjoy them all year round.
