What is Nachos

Nachos is Mexican food. Tortilla chips are heated and cheese is topped on it (normally cheese melts), along with other things like  Jalapeños. According to wiki, the history of Nachos is linked to Piedras Negras. Ignacio “Nacho” Anaya was the creator of nachos. When Mamie Finan, a regular customer, asked if Anaya could bring something unusual and new, Anaya made this nachos, back in 1940. Anaya cut the tortillas in triangular shape. Fried these tortillas and added melted cheese along with jalapeños, gave this the name as “Nachos”.

Nachos is such an easy thing to make, that it takes only a few minutes and a great munch is ready. One can choose toppings on nachos as per taste. My daughter will go with simple basic nachos with less spicy dips. I like fully loaded nachos with lots of cheese, jalapeños, chickpeas, olives etc.


My recipe is how I normally make nachos (and loved by my guests). Please feel free to change toppings as per own taste.

  • Place the nachos in a tray and spread chopped onion and chickpeas all over it. Spread cheese over them and microwave on high heat for 1 minute.
  • Now evenly spread jalapeños, tomato salsa, guacamole, sour cream and burger sauce.

Common nachos toppings include:

Black beans, chilli con carne, chives, cilantro, ground beef, meat, guacamole, jalapeño, lettuce, onion, garlic, sour cream, pickles, tomatoes, salsa, lime pickles, chickpeas, etc.

My recipe is for vegetarians, however non-veg lovers can add beef or other meat as per taste.

  • Serve and enjoy.


  • I have used a Doritos (nachos) packet here, but you can use any nachos of your choice.
  • You can add boiled/canned sweetcorn and finely chopped bell peppers too. (This is optional)
  • You can skip adding burger sauce. I like adding it as it gives little tangy and creamy flavour.
  • Always make them just before eating. As leaving them for longer will make them soggy.
  • To make it more spicy, sprinkle little chat masala on top.
