Baked Nachos Recipe with Homemade Chips
I made these baked chicken nachos with my homemade Tequila Lime Baked Tortilla Chips recipe. That’s what gives them that amazing tequila lime flavor.
It adds so much to the overall taste of the nachos, so I highly recommend adding them into the mix. However, you can simply use regular tortilla chips, any store-bought variety, or substitute my Homemade Garlic Parmesan Tortilla Chips.
If you are going to use the homemade tortilla chips, you can either make them fresh just before preparing the nachos. Or you can make them ahead of time and save them in a resealable bag, so that they’re ready to go when you make the nachos.
After the fresh tortilla chips and all the other amazing ingredients, these sheet pan nachos are topped off by drizzling my Homemade White Queso all over. SO GOOD. It really brings that final touch.
Chicken Nachos Ingredients:
- Tequila Lime Tortilla Chips
- Chicken Tenders
- Shredded Mexican Blend Cheese
- Taco Seasoning
- Pico de Gallo
- Lime Juice
- White Queso
And of course you can add any of your favorite toppings and garnishes to these sheet pan nachos. I love adding black beans, avocado slices, and sour cream, but there are so many other things you can add.
Here are a few more ideas:
- Mexican Street Corn Salsa
- Refried Beans
- More Cheese
- Aji Verde Sauce
