Loaded Sheet Pan Beef Nachos
Loaded Sheet Pan Beef Nachos are a quick and easy way to feed a hungry crowd and perfect Game Day food. Sheet pan nachos loaded with melted cheese, jalapenos, black beans, red onions, tomatoes and jalapeno sour cream and oven baked to perfection.
- 1 pound ground beef
- 1 ounce packet of taco seasoning
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1/3 cup water
- 16 ounce bag of tortilla chips
- 8 ounces melted nacho cheese sauce
- 3 ounces sliced black olives
- 3 ounces sliced jalapeno, jarred
- 15 ounces black beans, rinsed
- 1 pint cherry tomatoes, quartered
- 1/3 cup red onions, diced or pickled
- 3 cups shredded cheese
- 1 jalapeno, thin sliced
- 1 cup sour cream
Start by preheating oven to 400 degrees and lightly spraying a large baking pan with non-stick spray. Set aside.
In a large skillet, brown ground beef until no longer pink, about 4-5 minutes. Drain grease and return beef to the pan. Add in taco seasoning, garlic powder and onion powder along with a dash of salt and 1/3 cup of water. Stir to combine and cook for 2-3 minutes.
Lay tortilla chips out in an even and singular layer on the sheet pan. Top chips with the ground beef, then a layer of nacho cheese sauce. Add a layer of black beans then sliced jalapeno, olives, diced tomato, red onions. Top off nachos with shredded cheese and sliced fresh jalapeno.
Bake for 5-10 minutes or until cheese has melted. Serve topped with sour cream, salsa or jalapeno sour cream (quick recipe below).
- I use a 15x10 jelly roll pan to make my sheet pan nachos. A jelly roll pan is larger than a standard 13x9 pan so there is more room for nacho-y goodness. You can find them online or in your local big box store.
- Don't like an ingredient in this nacho recipe? Leave it off! Want to add something else? Go for it!!
- I am apologetically double dipping in the cheese category for these sheet pan nachos. I love using the melted nacho cheese and the shredded cheese for the best of both worlds.
- Like me and hate your significant others favorite topping? Do what I do and make half a pan your way, half theirs. All is fair in love and nachos.
- Grab a packet of your favorite taco seasoning or if you really want to kick things up, grab a packet of Hot and Spicy taco seasoning if your store carries it.
- Want to switch up your beef nachos? Substitute the beef with ground pork, ground chicken or shredded chicken.
- If you want, reserve a small portion of your onions, beans and olives to sprinkle on top of your oven baked nachos, to make them pretty :) Top and pop back in the oven for 1-2 minutes before serving.
