Mexican Nachos Recipes
If you love nachos so much you want to eat them for dinner then Angela’s Black Bean and Potato Nacho Plate is perfect for you, because hey if it has potatoes in you can legitimately call it dinner right? If you’ve got time then definitely make your own potato wedges, but if you’re looking for something to make for dinner using the ingredients in your kitchen you can even make it with store-bought fries.
If your favourite thing about concession stand nachos is the orange dipping cheese you need to check out Andi’s Nachos with Homemade Taco Meat and Sriracha Cheese Sauce, because she’s managed to replicate that orange cheese with real ingredients! And the cheese is so good you’ll soon be adding french fries and baked potatoes to your meal plan just so you can drizzle this cheese all over them.
If you’re looking for the perfect nacho recipe for your football party then check out Sommer’s Sweet and Spicy Beef Nachos. The great thing about this recipe is your slow cooker does all the hard work and then when your guests are ready to eat it only takes a few minutes to put the nachos together.
If you’re a vegetarian you don’t have to miss out on Mexican nachos thanks to Rini and her Vegetarian Nachos recipe. I love the way she makes hers in a mini skillet so it’s a single portion of scrumptious nachos that you don’t have to share with anyone else!
Finally I just had to share Maria and Josh’s Loaded Sweet Potato Nachos which are just perfect for Super Bowl Sunday parties. Who would have thought you could switch your nachos for sweet potato fries and still have an awesome nacho style experience?

If cheese dip is more your thing then don’t miss Marion’s Queso Blanco Dip. It’s perfect for parties as the recipe makes a ton of sauce, but it freezes great too so you can use it as part of your meal planning, after all you can use cheese sauce on anything from omelettes to grilled cheese to chicken wings!
Do you find yourself torn between guacamole and pico when you’re eating Mexican food? Well thanks to Anna’s Pico Guacamole you can now have the best of both worlds!
