Mile High Nachos Recipe

Updated on March 19, 2018
Just Ask Susan profile image

One of Susan's passions is cooking and creating new recipes for family and friends.

I'm always telling people how delicious my husbands' nachos are so I decided to reveal his secret recipe. But shh, please don't tell him. I named them "Mile High Nachos" but as you can see they aren't really a mile high.

When he makes these there is usually enough to feed four people. We will make this for dinner and it usually fills everyone up to the point where everyone is saying, "I'm so full, I can't eat another bite." Someone always manages to finish them, however.

Mile High Nachos are always good to serve as an appetizer when you have a large crowd over or as a snack while watching television.

Let's Build The Nacho Mountain

  1. Preheat your oven to broil and have the rack in the center of the oven.
  2. We use either an extra large pizza pan or when we are making a smaller batch we use a baking stone.
  3. Start by covering the bottom of your pan with Tostitos Chips. Layer all the ingredients starting with one cup of the cheese. Build it like you would like lasagna until all the ingredients are used up.
  4. Pop it into the oven for approximately ten minutes or until you can see that all the cheese is melted.
  5. Remove from the oven, let cool a few minutes, serve and enjoy.

Guacamole Recipe

Alternatives Ways To Make Nachos

For a different flavor try making these nachos with ground chicken or leftover roasted chicken. Use up your leftover turkey or make meatless nachos and omit the meat altogether.

Irish Nachos?

Here's a recipe for something a little different than your average nachos. They are called Irish nachos and are made with potato chips and bacon rather than tortilla chips and ground beef. I must say they are pretty tasty.
