Easy Loaded Nachos Supreme Recipe
It's guaranteed when I bring out this huge pan of nachos, that people line-up and grab a plate to eat. I never have to ask twice. It's the type of food we call party food at our house, no party required. Another popular family dish are my easy cheesy taco sliders that double as an appetizer and game day snack. Some days, hot chicken salad served with pita chips or crostini makes a tasty snack as well as casual classics like cowboy pasta salad that's practically a meal in a bowl.
How to Make the Best Loaded Nachos Supreme Recipe in the Oven
Whether you're celebrating Cinco de Mayo, tailgating or making a festive Mexican feast for the family at home, nachos are a guaranteed hit.
- Ingredients you'll need to make this recipe for Loaded Nachos Supreme: Tortilla chips, ground beef, chorizo sausage, onion, garlic, taco seasoning, salt, cumin, lemon pepper, canned Ranch style beans, prepared queso, shredded pepper jack and colby jack cheese, pico de gallo, diced avocado, sliced fresh jalapeno peppers and crema or sour cream or serving.
- I highly recommend the blended flavor of ground beef and chorizo sausage for these nachos. That said, you could opt to use all beef, or all chorizo should you prefer to do so.
- The drippings left behind in the pan from the chorizo seasons the pinto beans. You can taste and adjust salt to your taste or adjust the amount of taco seasoning, if you opt for an all ground beef nachos version.
- I make these pan nachos using my large rimmed grill pan. When doing it this way, I find that the chips stay crisp when drizzled with the gooey queso due to the ridges in the pan. You can, of course use a large standard sheet pan or oven safe griddle instead.
- The perfect accompaniment for nachos supreme is a big batch of homemade pico de gallo to go on top. If you prefer. you could top this with diced fresh tomatoes and sliced jalapenos with diced onion, instead. If you aren't a fan of jalapenos, use green pepper for a milder option.
- In addition to the diced avocado, I usually serve a dish of fresh guacamole on the side. Roasted or chili powder seasoned corn would also be a tasty addition.
- Other optional toppings suggestions include sliced ripe olives, fresh cilantro, refried beans, green onion, hot sauce or crema or a generous serving of restaurant style salsa from Iowa Girl Eats.
