What’s better than sharing a big plate of steamy nachos overflowing with flavors and savory ingredients? The only thing that could improve that scenario is to add more melted cheese! Our nacho recipe hits all the right flavors; from savory beef simmered in a zesty salsa to the double layers of Sargento® Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese - Traditional Cut.

  • 1/2 pound lean ground beef or turkey
  • 1/2 cup diced red bell pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • 7 to 8 cups (7 oz.) sturdy tortilla chips
  • 1-3/4 cups (7 oz.) Sargento® Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese - Traditional Cut, divided
  • Optional toppings: diced ripe avocado, sliced pickled jalapeno peppers, chopped cilantro and additional salsa
  1. Cook and stir meat with bell pepper and garlic in large skillet over medium heat until meat is no longer pink. Stir in salsa; simmer 5 minutes.
  2. Arrange tortilla chips in single layer on foil-lined 12-inch pizza pan or large rimmed baking sheet. Sprinkle 1 cup cheese over chips. Spoon meat mixture over chips; top with remaining cheese.
  3. Bake in a preheated 375°F oven 12 to 14 minutes or until heated through and cheese is melted. Top as desired.
