Loaded Sheet-Pan Nachos

This quick and easy Super Bowl recipe has been referred to as "the best nachos people have ever had." With easy-to-find ingredients, an optional pop of tang and spice from the pickled jalapeƱos, and the salsa verde and sour cream for serving, we think it's earned its title!


  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium green bell pepper, diced
  • 1 medium red onion, diced
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 (13 ounce) package tortilla chips
  • 1 (8 ounce) package shredded Mexican blend or Cheddar cheese
  • ¼ cup pickled jalapeños, chopped (Optional)
  • ¼ cup sliced scallions
  • ¼ cup roughly chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 medium avocado, diced
  • Salsa verde and sour cream for serving


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add bell pepper, onion and salt; cook, stirring, until just tender, about 3 minutes.
  3. Layer half the chips in a single layer on a sheet pan. Top with about half of the cooked vegetables and about 1/3 of the cheese.
  4. Scatter the remaining chips on top of the first layer. Sprinkle with the remaining cooked vegetables, cheese and jalapeños (if using). Bake until the cheese is melted and just starting to turn golden brown, 8 to 10 minutes.
  5. Top with scallions, cilantro and avocado. Serve with salsa and sour cream, if desired.
