Mostly always Tortilla Chips, but the Chips can also be swapped out or exchanged with Doritos Chips.

Cheddar Cheese Old Fort


Shredded Cheddar Cheese on top. Usually always melted, but you certainly don’t have to. You could even go for a Nacho Cheese melt drizzled over top or on the side to dip in.

Another good cheese is Monterrey Jack along with the Cheddar Cheese, the Tex Mex Cheese or Old Fort White Cheddar Cheese is really good too.

Taco Meat

Taco Meat

For the Taco meat, I have my own Taco Seasoning. But you could also use Old El Paso Taco Seasoning. Either way, cook the Ground meat per instructions for Tacos and sprinkle the Meat over the Nachos.

Bowl of Homemade Salsa

Homemade Salsa

Salsa is used in this recipe and contributes chunky bits of vegetables and some sauce. But you could substitute with Pico de Gallo or use it alongside with the Salsa. You could also combine the Red Taco Sauce with Pico de Gallo for your Salsa.

Another option is to just dice some Onions, Tomatoes and Peppers. Either throw them in with the Taco Meat towards the end, or just sprinkle them on top of the Nacho Platter before going into the oven.

Red Taco Sauce

Red Taco Sauce

Red Taco Sauce is the main sauce that is drizzled over the Nachos. This takes about 10 minutes to prepare and is completely optional.

Sour Cream

Sour Cream

Place the Sour Cream in a squeeze bottle so that it can be squeezed out over the Nachos. Which makes it easier to get more sour cream that is spread out and presentation as well. This can also be replaced with Cilantro Cream Sauce or Cilantro Sauce.
