Win Over Your Guests with a Nachos Platter

Create a hearty, crowd-pleasing plate for the big game or for game night


Autumn is in full swing, with winter hot on its heels, so it’s time to start making some hearty meals, and what better dish to serve for Sunday football or a game night than elaborate, crispy, crunchy nachos? 

While a nachos platter is a staple on most chain restaurants' menus, like T.G. I. Friday's, Applebee’s, Chevy’s, Ruby Tuesday, etc., making one at home is very simple and can be adjusted to the likes of your guests with a DIY bar. 

Make it a loaded nacho bar with all of the fixings, giving people options to make theirs as "healthy" and light as they want (light meat and no chips, just a nacho-esque salad) or as caloric and extreme as it can get with mounds of sour cream, cheese, and jalapeños. 

Here’s what you need to create an endless nacho bar: 

• Ground beef or chili
• Tortilla chips
• Shredded lettuce
• Chopped tomatoes
• Sour cream
• Cheese (melted, shredded, cubed — whichever way you like it)
• Black olives
• Jalapeños
• Beans — refried, black, pinto 

Whether it’s the big game or game night, if you make a platter or let your guests help themselves to make their own, you’ll be refilling the dishes all night because people just won't be able to get enough.
