Not Yo Cheese: 24 Nacho Recipes You Won’t Want to Share (2024)

Snacking — we can’t, we won’t ever quit it. And one of the best ways to satisfy any snackage mood is cheese. You can never go wrong with a classic grilled cheese or the comfort of homemade mac and cheese, but those two pale in comparison when placed next to the almighty nacho. Whether you’re prepping for a party or looking to get your snack on, here are 24 creative nacho recipes you won’t want to share. (But if we’re coming over, you better.)

1. Sweet Potato and Carrot Nachos: Sweet potato fries are the bomb. So we know you’re going to be down with a nacho version that is packing carrots and kale. All your arguments that nachos are a well balanced meal finally have a leg to stand on. (via The Cookie Writer)

2. Loaded BBQ Chicken Nugget Nachos: You put BBQ sauce on everything — wings, brisket, Lucky Charms — so why not put it on chicken-nugget-laden nachos? Topped with tomatoes, corn and avocado, this dish is a crowd pleaser and can be made vegan and gluten-free, too. (via Averie Cooks)

3. Seven-Layer Nacho Waffles: Holy crap, you guys. Someone figured out a way to eat nachos for breakfast. See ya later, oatmeal. It’s like we never knew ya. (via Scarletta Bakes)

4. Grilled Shrimp and Pepper Jack Cheese Nachos: Grilled shrimp on a bed of jalapeños, pepper jack cheese and tortilla chips is a winner in our book. (via Barbells and Bellinis)

7. Chicken Cashew Coriander Nachos: Here’s something you already know: Preparing and making dinner takes time and energy.

These nachos will definitely NOT make you feel like Jules, but they will fill your stomach and taste oh-so-so good. (via The Hungry Babushka)

8. Totchos Supreme Burgers: Totchos, are they better than nachos? While the debate rages on, we’ll be stuffing our faces with bacon and chipotle totchos atop an all-beef patty. (via Half Baked Harvest)

9. Baked Sweet Potato Chips: The sweet potato is calling our name… again. And we’re definitely answering. Give these little chips some love in the oven, pour a blue cheese sauce over them and serve with bacon and green onions. (via Cooking For Keeps)

10. Sweet and Spicy BBQ Chicken Nachos: We’ve turned to our good friend, BBQ sauce, again. But, this time, we’re switching it up and using Sweet and Spicy BBQ SunChips. I know, crazy, right? Top these yummy chips with chicken, sour cream and cheddar cheese for a twist the kids (ahem, and adults) will enjoy. (via Let’s Dish)

11. Buffalo Chicken Waffle Fries: Football season is upon us and waffle fries are sure to score a touchdown with your friends when they’re smothered in a generous helping of buffalo chicken, mozzarella, ranch and chives. (via Buns in My Oven)

12. Apple Nachos: Since an apple a day keeps the doctor away, it’s totally fine to make this a daily ritual. This sweet and savory recipe plays up the apple with a drizzle of peanut butter and a handful of chocolate chips. (via Trial + Eater)

13. Nacho Hot Dogs: This reigns supreme as the top dog. Snuggled in a warm and toasty bun, this dog is loaded with sour cream, tortilla chips, avocado and lime. It’s like your two favorite baseball snacks just had a baby — a delicious bundle of joy. (via Diethood)

(via Keepin’ It Kind)
