These are adapted from the El Paso Chile Company's cookbook. They are incredibly good and are my favorite late-night snack.

I made these for my family for the Superbowl!! 17 yo DS doesn't care for bacon, so I made 1/2 with the bacon and other without and we all enjoyed the nachos. I used the jar type of already minced jalapeno peppers and followed it all as written. I am a bacon lover so this is something I will also make for my weekday lunches. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for PRMR.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 475.
  2. Cook bacon on stovetop until crisp. Drain on absorbent paper. When the bacon is cool, coarsely chop it.
  3. Arrange the tortilla chips on a large rimmed baking sheet. Scatter the bacon, onions, and jalapenos evenly over the chips. Sprinkle the grated cheese over all. Bake about 5 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and the nachos are sizzling (watch carefully to prevent overbrowning).
  4. Serve immediately, accompanied by sour cream and salsa for dipping. (As the nachos already have jalapenos on them, choose a salsa that's not too hot).
