Foil Packet recipes are literally ALL THE RAGE right now on fb and the internet!? I see them everywhere and now I get it. They’re so fun, easy to clean up, and usually work like a charm! You might remember the Foil Packet Caesar Salmon we recently made, one of my favorites!

I decided to give another foil packet recipe a shot and these Foil Packet Nachos were born! They’re filled with spicy beef, tomatoes, black beans, green chiles, chips, and lots of cheese. OF COURSE there’s lots of cheese. They all melt together like a dream inside the foil tent, either in the oven or on the grill. I could really get into this trend!

Between the amazing flavor of all the ingredients and the ease of making these in packets, I’ve decided this is the Best Nachos Recipe because flavor and simplicity are what really matters!

Easy Foil Packet Recipes

Foil Packet recipes are the definition of easy recipes. Just use aluminum foil to create your packets, throw in the ingredients (some might need to be cooked before this step), and then bake or grill! Not only is the cooking part easy, but clean up is a cinch. No pots and pans to scrub because everything was contained inside the foil packets. And let’s be honest, cleaning is the least fun part of cooking!
