How To Make Cookie Sheet Nachos

Updated on December 30, 2015
5 stars from 1 rating of Cookie Sheet Nachos

I got this idea during the football season this past year. I knew I would be serving up snacks but I wanted something more health concision and to cut back on the sweet intake as much as possible. Homemade Nachos fit the bill. It has plenty of goodies such as; meat, veggies, cheese, rice and salsa all spread out for the grubbing.

As we all well know Football season can take a toll on what to serve and how much. This Cookie sheet Nachos is a great way to make a large amount and serve it straight from the sheet so folks can take as much or as little as they'd like by pulling chips and toppings straight the sheet. Or you can cut into individual square serving to dish up one at a time. It really is up to you.

When I presented this snack during a game I got raves on the idea and it was devoured in not time. The great thing about this is you really do get stuffed. Its a bit deceiving because the layers aren't visibly seen, so you keep going and it seems to not end because you hit another layer. We were pleasantly filled with it and now it is a common game time snack even out of Football season.
