FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions

  • How Do You Keep Sheet Pan Nachos From Getting Soggy?

    A sheet pan covered with aluminum foil and lined with parchment paper is the key to ensuring that your nachos will be crisp all the way through. The nachos are then quickly cooked in a hot oven. For more flavor, add a bit of cumin and chili powder to the skillet before cooking.

  • What Temperature Should You Cook Nachos?

    The crispier your nachos, the better. If you’re looking to cut some fat and calories, go for 300°F (150°C) or below. If you want gooey cheese on your nachos, 400°F (200°C) is the way to go.

  • What Is The Best Way To Layer Nachos?

    The best way to layer nachos is from the bottom up. The beef, beans, tomatoes, and cheese should be placed in a single layer on the bottom of the pan. You can sprinkle jalapenos and salsa over this layer, as well as any other toppings. Then you will build up the layers with tortilla chips, onion, fresh cilantro, and more before finally topping with shredded cheese and a drizzle of your favorite hot sauce.
