Ultimate Loaded Nachos made with crunchy warm tortilla chips drenched in melted cheese, spicy beef and veggies are great for game day, parties and even dinner.
One of my favorite times to prepare Nachos is when a big sports game is on. Ultimate Loaded nachos are perfect for entertaining because depending on the size of the crowd, I just pile the Nachos higher.
INGREDIENTS NEEDED TO MAKE LOADED NACHOS

- Ground Beef

The key to great nachos is to start with great tortilla chips. If you like homemade chips, then you really should try making your own Homemade Tortilla Chips. While you’re at it, you can make your own Taco Seasoning too. Let me tell ya, once you get away from the store bought mixes, you won’t be going back.
HOW TO MAKE ULTIMATE NACHOS
- First, pile the chips on a parchment lined baking sheet.
- Start layering the toppings…chips, meat, toppings, and repeat.
- Then you throw the whole tray into the oven to heat up all of the layers and when done you have a whole pile of steaming cheese, meat and chips.
- Make it all pretty and even more delicious by garnishing with fresh veggies like tomatoes, onions, peppers, and a big side of sour cream!
