Sheet Pan Nachos Recipe

Over the past year or so, sheet pan meals have become super popular. They’re quick to prepare, without much effort. This tasty sheet pan nachos recipe is just one example, perfect for when you’re craving Mexican food at the end of a hectic day or while watching the big game!

One of the good things about a recipe like this is that you can easily substitute or leave off an ingredient you don’t care for. You can also add in extras, if you so choose. Green and/or black olives, anyone?

How to make the nachos

The key to success with something like this is to thoroughly drain the liquid from both the beans and corn. If you don’t, you’ll end up with a soggy mess underneath. It’s better to use a strainer as opposed to simply draining the liquid out of the can.

This recipe calls for plain tortilla chips. However, feel free to use your favourite brand and flavour, to spice things up a bit. Leftover chicken is perfect for your easy-to-make nachos. But, there’s nothing that says you can’t use ground beef or even spicy sausage instead. Go ahead and live a little!

If you’re prone to crying when cutting onions, try this. Run cold water over both halves for approximately 30 seconds, before dicing or chopping. No more tears!

You can just as easily double this recipe for a crowd or shrink in half for one or two people. Leftover nachos are generally not the best. So, it’s recommended you only make enough for one meal.

Some people aren’t fond of the taste of cilantro. In fact, many of the same people think it tastes like soap. If you decide to leave it out of the recipe, for whatever reason, no worries! You’ll still end up with a sheet pan of yummy nachos that will have everyone coming back for more.

  1. This looks so delicious and I especially like how you used chicken because I tried beef and the chips get soggy. I like all the toppings except avocado but I’d replace it with peppers and for extra spice I’d use Pepper Jack cheese.

  2. Looks amazingly delicious! I use a similar sheet pan recipe for nachos while hosting parties; its ridiculously easy and always a crowd pleaser. It never makes it to a serving tray; always gets demolished right off the pan!
