How to make nachos in the oven
What temperature should nachos be cooked at?
You can bake nachos at a lower heat of 350 degrees for 15 minutes or you can broil them for 2 minutes for extra crunch. Either way is great, it really just depends on how quickly you need them.
What toppings are good on nachos?
- Sour cream
- Hot sauce
- Cojita Cheese
Do you put salsa on nachos before baking them?
I LOVE this bean and meat mixture on nachos! It is slightly sweet thanks to the baked beans but salty with the ground beef. The corn adds another great flavor that takes these to the NEXT LEVEL!
The smoked paprika in this bean mixture adds a depth of flavor that goes so well with the fresh cilantro and cool sour cream. I personally like to sprinkle a little extra onto the nachos after all the garnish has been added.

Gluten-Free Tortilla Chips
There are actually quite a few tortilla chips out there that are gluten-free. Look for ones that have a gluten-free label. They should only include corn and no wheat ingredients.
One of the biggest things is making sure the chips aren’t cross contaminated by frying them in the same oil as something else with gluten. Here are a few of my favorite brands…
Sheet Pan Nachos
Using a sheet pan makes assembling AND clean up a breeze. One pan meals like this are my favorite on busy nights especially. Sometimes I don’t even get plates out, we just eat together at the table right off of the pan.
These cheeseburger tots are another one pan meal I love and so do the kids. Our one pot pizza pasta is another dinner everyone will love that requires little effort and leaves very few dishes. We even have an entire e-book with 20+ Sheet Pan Meals and More for you! It includes everything from breakfast and appetizers to main dishes and fantastic desserts.
My friend Erin of Meaningful Eats also has a one pot Southwest chicken and rice dish that everyone raves about!
Now, how about dessert nachos?
Dessert nachos are everything! These crunchy chips are covered in cinnamon sugar. They are then drizzled with a smooth and rich chocolate sauce and topped with chopped strawberries.
Truly there is nothing quite like a big ol’ plate of these dessert nachos. They are such an easy dessert that is also great for serving a crowd. The chocolate sauce makes them even more decadent! You can even make them dairy-free using Enjoy Life Foods chocolate chips.
