Easy Steps To Making These Delicious Nachos
First Step: Chips
Start by adding a layer of Tortilla chips to a large baking sheet that has been sprayed with a cooking spray.
- Layer one can of black beans that have been drained and rinsed well over the top of the chips.
- Add one can of corn that has been drained well over the top of the chips and black beans.
Third Step: Mexican Chicken
Layer the tortilla chips, black beans, and corn with shredded Mexican Chicken. See my easy slow cooker Mexican chicken recipe here.
Fourth Step: Season Your Nachos
Season your nachos well with Mexican seasoning. I use Fajita Magic by Chef Paul Prudhommes.
Fifth Step: Cheese
Layer on the cheese!
What is the best cheese for Nachos?
Monterey Jack cheese will give you the cheesy goodness you are looking for but you can also use sharp cheddar.
Last Step: Bake
Bake 350 degrees F until nice and gooey.
Is it better to bake or broil Nachos?
Baking nachos helps to heat the topping thoroughly. Broiling the nachos will only melt the cheese. If you broil your nachos, watch them carefully so they do not burn.
Topping for Nachos
- sour cream
- pico de gallo
- shredded lettuce
- black olives
Do you put cold toppings on Nachos before baking them?
Do not add any wet toppings on your Nachos before baking them. Save the salsa, sour cream, pico de gallo, for after they come out of the oven. This will keep them from getting soggy.
Serve Nachos during a Football Game

How long can you leave Nachos sitting out?
Follow the 2-hour health safety rule. Toss any food that has been cooked and left out on the counter two hours. Refrigerate before the two hours are up.
