These aren’t just any nachos, these are made with our classic queso blanco and topped with chorizo! They are absolutely divine and worth every bite!
When we created this recipe we thought about what makes our favorite nachos the best. Which flavors and toppings and the type of cheese we love and we came up with the ultimate queso blanco nachos!
Classic tortilla chips drenched in queso blanco with chorizo, avocado and a lot of cilantro. We purposely left out the tomatoes simply because we’re not fans! Instead, added a vibrant red color with pimentos which are even better on nachos.
If you haven’t tried queso blanco it’s a creamy, flavorful cheese dip that is literally perfect for nachos!
Nachos are perfect for an easy dinner, game day or party appetizer. The best thing is that you can add or remove any toppings you prefer, making them to your liking.
How to Make Queso Blanco Nachos
- Tortilla Chips
- Blanco Queso
- Green Onions
First, quickly make a batch of our queso blanco dip. You can also purchase this at the store if you prefer.
Next, cook the ground chorizo in a skillet until it’s hot. Break it apart with a spoon.
Then prepare the toppings. Slice the avocado, wash and chop green onions, loosely chop cilantro and drain pimentos.
Add a layer of chips in a baking dish or sheet pan.
Spread chorizo over the chips.
Pour the queso all over the chips and chorizo.
Add sliced avocados, cilantro, pimentos and jalapeños over the top.
If you’re using cold queso dip, you can pour it over the chips and chorizo and bake it in a 350 degree oven for 5-7 minutes.
Meat for Nachos
Use any meat for these nachos! We love the flavor of chorizo but there are several options you can switch out. You can also skip the meat fully!
- Shredded Chicken
- Ground Beef
- Left Over Pot Roast
- Ground Turkey
What toppings do you put on nachos?
One of the best things about nachos is picking the toppings. We chose our favorites, but there are a lot of options. Here are some ideas for nacho toppings.
- Black Beans
- Pico de Gallo
- Shredded Lettuce
- Sour Cream
What’s the best cheese for nachos?
Cheddar cheese or American white cheese is the best! We prefer to use a queso and pour it over the chips. You can make queso with american white cheese or cheddar cheese.
How do you melt cheese over nachos?
There are two ways to do this. You can make a queso in a nonstick pan and melt it over the stovetop, then pour it over the chips.
The second option is sprinkling loads of shredded cheese over the chips and then baking them in the a 350°F oven for about 5 minutes until the cheese has melted. You’ll add all the toppings after pulling the nachos out of the oven.
