Nacho Fiesta

These simple, basic nachos are perfect for parties and get-togethers for kids of all ages. Kick yours up by adding additional toppings to your liking.

  • Yield: 4 to 6 servings


  • 8 ounces tortilla chips (about 10 cups)
  • 8 ounces Cheddar cheese (1/2 pound), shredded (about 2 cups)
  • 8 ounces Monterey Jack cheese (1/2 pound), shredded (about 2 cups)
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced scallions
  • Salsa (optional)
  • Guacamole (optional)
  • 1/2 cup sour cream (optional)


  • Position rack in center of oven and preheat the oven to 400°F.
  • In a 9 by 13-inch baking dish, spread half of the tortilla chips in one even layer and top with half of each cheese.
  • Repeat with another layer of chips and the remaining cheeses.
  • Bake until the cheese is melted and chips are crispy, about 8 to 10 minutes.
  • Using oven mitts or pot holders, remove the nachos from the oven, sprinkle with the scallions, and allow to cool slightly, about 2 minutes.
  • Serve either straight from the baking dish or divide among serving plates and serve with Salsa, Guacamole, and sour cream spooned over the top if desired.
