Josh makes these nachos in a cast iron skillet. If you don’t have a cast iron skillet you can use a baking sheet pan. Josh uses three kinds of cheese: Cheddar, Pepper Jack, and Queso Fresco. He layers the cheese in between tortilla chips so every chip gets a healthy dose of cheese. No chips are left behind. These nachos are extra cheesy!

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

  • Place skillet in oven and Bake for 10-15 minutes, or until cheese is melted. Remove from oven and top with Queso Fresco cheese. Add additional toppings of your choice! We love diced tomatoes, black olives, avocado, cilantro, jalapeño, green onion, and sour cream. Serve warm!
  • Note-if you don't have a cast iron skillet, you can make these nachos on a large baking sheet.

  1. I want these on my plate NOW! Nevermind that it’s 7:30am. I’ll take ’em for breakfast. 🙂

  2. I’m having a DUH moment…I never though to do nachos in a cast iron skillet! That’s an awesome idea. I don’t watch football but I do love to make movie snacks, so this would be perfect. I like the addition of queso fresco…yum! Happy Friday 🙂

  3. I love all the colours you have going on — yuummm!! And I adore pepper jack cheese 🙂

  4. Oh, these are happening this weekend! No doubt! Great recipe! Love the skillet idea too! Nice touch! Thanks you guys!!

  5. Most of the time I am not a football fan. However last year with the Seattle Seahawks being the home team, it was really really hard not to be a football fan. And if you weren’t, you certainly didn’t admit it to anyone!!!!
    However, I like the idea of pretending to be a fan every season to eat nachos like these. The one pan deal—–that works for me.

  6. Nachos are my favorite appetizer anywhere we go. I love that these look so amazingly delicious…and cheesy!

  7. These looks so good. I could eat Nachos for every meal. Having the cheese throughout the layers is key for great nachos.

  8. I love this recipe so typical of Mexico, the probe once in a Mexican restaurant and this delicious.
