SHEET PAN NACHOS
The best and simplest method for making nachos is with a sheet pan. All on a single pan! One of my favorite quick dinner or lunch ideas for my family is these nachos. In this recipe, I used canned black beans, but I’ll also use any taco meat, steak, or chicken I have. It’s a great way to make use of leftovers.
HOW TO MAKE SHEET PAN NACHOS
- A sturdy baking sheet is your first step in making sheet pan nougat. For easy cleanup, spray the pan with non-stick cooking spray or line it with foil or parchment paper.
- If I use foil as a liner, I also spray cooking spray on the foil.
- Drain and rinse the black beans. Make sure to drain well to prevent the chips from becoming soggy.
- Rinse the canned corn.
- Layer half of the tortilla chips on a sheet pan before adding half each of the black beans, corn, and 8 ounces of shredded cheese.
- To make a second layer, make use of the remaining chips, beans, and corn.
- Jalapenos, the remaining cheese, tomatoes, and black olives
- Bake for about 15 minutes, or until the cheese is toasty and melted, at 350 degrees.
- Garnish with chopped cilantro or green onions.
- With salsa, sour cream, and guacamole, serve.
- This recipe makes two layers of nachos and serves enough for a family of four to eat for dinner.
Divide in half to serve as an appetizer.
To add meat to the recipe, use steak, chicken, or leftover taco meat. Simply layer the corn and beans.
Depending on what you have on hand, you can use canned or frozen corn.
For nachos, I like to use the thickly cut blend of shredded Mexican cheese. The way it melts really appeals to me!
