A while back I was making nachos and thought I wonder how good this would be with Doritos as a base? Of course, I didn’t have any Doritos® in the house and didn’t give the idea much more thought. A week later I was visiting my son and he said “I made the BEST nachos the other night using Doritos® as the base.” Whhaaaaattttttt??? Great minds I’m telling ya!
So, if you’ve never used Doritos® as a base for your nachos you have to give this a try. Grab an oven-safe tray and layer it with Doritos®, cheese, corn, black beans, salsa, lettuce, etc. Whatever you would normally use on your nachos just use on the Doritos®. Pop the tray into the oven at 350 for 5-10 minutes or until the cheese has melted. That’s it, easy , peasy.
I used this adorable pan from Wilton Armatale to bake the nachos. It makes a great serving tray as well since it can go from oven to table.
Don’t bake the Doritos® nachos too long or they’ll start to get a little crispy on top (see image below). Even with the crispy edges on some of the Doritos® these turned out so very, very good!
Since Em made these my request for black beans was over ruled, but even without the black beans we all really liked these. Next time your make nachos try replacing the plain tortilla chips with Doritos®.
- 1-2 cups Cheese, shredded
- Corn, ½ can
- Black beans, ½ can
- Salsa, to taste
- 1 cup lettuce, chopped
- Any other topping that you like.
- Sour cream and/or guacamole, served on side
- Place a layer of Doritos® on the tray. Top with nacho toppings of choice. Repeat so that you have two layers of chips and toppings. Bake at 350 for 5-10 minutes or until cheese is melted.
- Serve with sour cream and/or guacamole.
