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

Ready In:




  • Preheat the oven to 475.
  • Cook bacon on stovetop until crisp. Drain on absorbent paper. When the bacon is cool, coarsely chop it.
  • 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).
  • 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).

    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.

    Delicious! There is always a place for fresh jalapenos and pickled, and I think pickled worked out perfect on these :) Added some chopped tomatoes before serving, yum!

    The other commenter was right: these do taste just like potato skins, but with way less effort!<br/><br/>We made some changes to make this easy recipe even easier.<br/><br/>We used real bacon bits from Costco (their bacon bits are fantastic, if you haven't tried them) and so were able to skip the bacon-cooking step. We threw in a whole jar of pickled jalapenos, and did not measure any of the ingredients.<br/><br/>Yum! Thank you for posting.
