Game Day Nacho Recipes

Nacho chips

Ah, nachos… they’re one of the most decadent snacks out there. The combinations of chips, cheese and toppings is virtually endless. And this time of year, we think they’re particularly perfect for weekend football watching. In honor of National Nacho Day today, entertain your family and friends with one of these incredible nacho recipes below:

Talk about the perfect combination! Try pairing Purple Cowboy Trailboss Cabernet with Cowboy Beef Nachos. Nicole over at “Daily Dish Recipes” channeled her Dad’s nacho recipe for this cowboy creation which she calls a “manly meal,” featuring shredded beef, black beans, jalapenos and more mouth-watering nacho toppings!


These Shredded Beef Nachos take advantage of leftover slow cooked shredded beef so putting them together takes just a few minutes – perfect for a busy game night! Robyn at “Add a Pinch” calls these a “one skillet macho taco dish of the most supreme sort.” She’s not kidding!

No leftover shredded beef on hand? Mary at “Deep South Dish” created these Easy Beef Nachos with directions for seasoning up your beef just right, and in no time at all!


With a blog name like A Spicy Perspective, you know you’ll find a good nacho recipe! Sommer doesn’t disappoint with her recipe for Beef Nachos with Slow Cooker Chili Con Carne. Chili today, sweet and spicy nachos tomorrow! PS, these nachos feature Apple Butter!

Last but not least, “The Pioneer Woman” has come up with a fantastic take on Loaded Nachos. Ree says she takes her nachos seriously, very seriously. And, she’s not kidding. Our first clue was the ranch style beans and then, it was the homemade pico de gallo.

All of these ladies know nachos, now, what are you waiting for? Pour yourself a glass of wine, browse these amazing recipes and get some nachos in your belly. Cheers!
