loaded beef taco dorito nachos

Loaded Beef Taco Dorito Nachos make the ultimate game night snack! You can’t go wrong with a pile of nachos to keep you satisfied while you watch the game. Loaded overtop nacho cheese Doritos with spicy, saucy and cheesy chunks of beef pulled apart with extra melted cheese and bites of fresh tomatoes, diced onions, jalapenos, cilantro and finished with sour cream.

This creation starts off by cooking the beef. But not just any beef, taco seasoned beef with extra cheese because why not make it extra cheesy. To make the taco mixture, its a combination of spices from chipotle chili, paprika, cumin for a touch of smoke and spice blended with garlic powder, onion powder and some salt and pepper to season. To ensure that it all comes together and thickens just the right amount, I like to add a touch of tomato paste which gives it some sweetness and the water helps simmer everything into a sauce. Finish the beef off by mixing in a blend of mexican cheeses until it completely melts.

These are basically your standard beef nachos but elevated just a bit to make them extra delicious and super fun without over complicating anything. So instead of making those same old boring nachos, try these Dorichos instead. We grabbed the perfect chip, crunchy cheesy nacho Doritos as our canvas and we turned up the flavours for the beef with the best taco spices for some epic taste. Amazing I know!

Just these two simple touches to make this an epic masterpiece to wow guests or the household. This house loves watching sports, especially football. We get right into the playoffs for hockey which are on right now and of course we have to make ourselves some playoff snacks to keep our hungry tummies satisfied while we watch the game and don’t miss out on too much to make dinner.

To assemble

Once the beef is cooked its easy. Now i made these two layers but you can just make 1 if that’s easier. Layer the chips with the beef and cheese and repeat for a second layer. Bake in the oven until the cheese has melted, don’t keep them in there any longer otherwise the chips will burn and the cheese will melt too much the toppings won’t have anything to stick to. Use as much cheese as you would like here I don’t know that there’s an amount that’s too much but definitely enough to cover all the chips so that you can get those toppings sticking to the chips.

I’m simple, when it comes to toppings I like the basics- tomatoes, jalapeños, onion, cilantro and sour cream or a chipotle sauce. Some guacamole or avocado would also be delicious, bacon, grilled corn or just about anything you would put in your tacos would probably be good overtop. Be sure to eat these as soon as they come out of the oven!
