The best part about making nachos is getting to create it a recipe that's all your own. Bake a batch using our classic nacho recipe, then go to town with topping options such as cilantro, jalapeno peppers, sour cream, and salsa. Or switch it up entirely and use fries or pizza crust for your "chips."

For Restaurant-Style Nachos

Beyond Chips

Instead of tortilla chips, spoon nacho toppings over hot French fries, potato tots, baked potato skins, roasted sweet potato slices, pita rounds, shredded lettuce, or pizza crust.
