How to Make Nachos


Nachos is a popular Mexican snack - tortilla chips that can be served with different kinds of toppings. Nachos were first invented in the first half of the XX century. They can be served with red hot chili sauce, just like many other Mexican dishes. All nacho chips recipes are pretty similar - it's topping ingredients that vary. Here we offer you one of the best Nacho chips recipes and hope you and your guests are going to enjoy it. It takes a little bit more than an hour, but it is totally worth it.



Nacho chips:

  • 2 cups corn flour or all-purpose flour;
  • 2 cups oil;
  • Salt to your taste;
  • Cinnamon (optional).


  • 1 – 2 tbsp fat sour cream;
  • 1/3 lb (150 gr) grated cheese;
  • 1 marinated green chili pepper ( jalapeño);
  • 1 sweet pepper;
  • Half a spoon ground chili pepper;
  • 1 onion;
  • Olives (optional);
  • Tomatoes (optional);
  • Green onion (optional);
  • Salad leaves(optional).


Making dough

First of all you have to make tortillas (as nachos are made of tortillas). Combine one and half a glass of warm water and 2 cups of corn flour. Add a little vegetable oil or olive oil to your taste. Add cinnamon to your taste. Once your dough is as thick as you need it to be, divide it in several parts.

Making scones

Make balls out of dough. Roll out the dough to get scones. Place a heavy pot on a scone to make it perfectly flat. Oil the bottom of the pot so dough doesn’t stick to it.


Fry each scone in oil for 30 seconds. Flip it and give it 30 more seconds. Cut each scone in pieces or just break it. Deep fry the pieces for 30 – 45 seconds. Remove nachos from the pan and place them on paper towels so they absorb the excess of oil.


Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C (350 degrees F). Place nacho chips on a baking sheet. Cover nacho chips with green onion, cheese and chili (if you like). Sprinkle them with ground chili pepper. Add a thin layer of sour cream. Bake nachos for a couple of minutes – till sour cream starts to bubble.


Once nachos are ready, add chopped onion and decorate it with chopped green onion and salad leaves.


  • Don't leave the kitchen when you cook, nacho (like any other kind of chips) burn fast.
  • Don't add chili pepper if you plan on serving nachos to children - their stomachs are too weak for spicy food.



Nacho chips go great with Salsa sauce, avocado and salads. It is a great snack that you can use instead of chips or even instead of popcorn. Feel free to experiment with toppings; you can enjoy nachos over a bottle of beer or watching your favorite movie!
