Bar Nachos


Bar Nachos

Maybe you’ve noticed a theme this month…last week Chica’s Queso, the week before that was Baked Tortilla Chips, and now we have what they all were leading up to! These more than amazing Bar Nachos! However, I don’t know of any bar that serves them up quite like this!

Bar Nachos

Baked Tortilla Chips are topped with refried black beans, organic ground beef, Chica’s Queso, sour cream, jalapenos and shredded lettuce for good measure.

Bar Nacho Tips

  1. If you are adding Chica’s Queso or any queso or cheese dip for that matter, cheese has a tendency to separate as it sits. Be sure to time accordingly.
  2. You can also put the queso in a small slow cooker while you prepare the Bar Nachos, just be sure to stir often and keep an eye on the cheese.
  3. A fun way to serve these nachos is on a large baking sheet like I did in the photos above. The presentation is jaw dropping and it makes it easy for your guests to enjoy.
  4. Want that fun sour cream drizzle? Just add a little water to thin out your sour cream and place sour cream in a zip top bag, snip a small piece off the corner of the bag to create a piping bag and drizzle to your heart’s content.
  5. You’ll notice there is no salt in this recipe. That’s because my taco seasoning had salt in it. Check your brand and if salt is listed on the ingredients list hold off. It’s easy to add salt later but not so easy to take it out.
