The secret to creating the perfect nachos

Whether it’s game day or you’re just casually having friends over to hang out, you can’t go wrong with a huge platter of nachos. How could you when you’ve got this universally beloved dish of baked tortilla chips smothered in cheese on your side? Sure, nachos are the food of the people — magically egalitarian and guaranteed to please — but keeping in mind a few key tips can turn your version into a unicorn in a field of mediocre nachos.

Incredibly versatile and surprisingly right for almost any occasion, nachos are hard to mess up. That said, there’s still a giant spectrum when we start to talk about the nitty-gritty.

From choosing the right type of tortilla chips and using the ideal layering techniques to making your own bean dip and garnishing your platter, this guide is actually less about telling you how to make your nachos and more about empowering you to make the best nachos you are capable of making.

Psst! The real secret to creating the perfect nachos is not about throwing away everything you ever learned about nacho-making. No way! Take what you love about nachos — gooey cheese, crunchy chips, and toppings galore — and turn them into your dream party dish.
