In my opinion, game day is all about the spread! I’m talking little smokies, barbecue pork sliders, endless amounts of wings, charcuterie, bowls of chili, and nachos!
One could live off these sheet pan nachos. Is that even a dare?
Today I want to share with you an easy recipe that you can whip up for game day that takes just minutes to make. Meet your new best friend, Sheet Pan Nachos with Texas-Style Salsa. What I love most about making nachos is the versatility. You can add whatever ingredients your heart desires. For this version I went vegetarian by adding peppers, onions, and a mixture of beans. And, of course, cheese and more cheese. But when it comes down to it, the most important feature of any nacho presentation is the garnishes.
The usual suspects should always make an appearance – sour cream, avocado, cilantro, and jalapeños. But really, it’s all about the salsa. Harry and David Texas-Style Salsa is always going to make your nachos an 11 out of 10 situation. Made with tomatoes, onions, carrots, and bell peppers, then spiced with salt, garlic, and cilantro, this salsa is rich, savory and full of flavor!
So, who’s ready for the big game now?
