Everyone loves Nachos! Normally they are a meal in themselves but if you’ve got some pals coming round for a back yard bbq or to watch some sport or just fancy some comfort food you might want to add a little extra. Here’s our guide of what to serve with your Nachos to make one hell of a feast! Happy eating amigos!

1. Buttermilk Fried Chicken

If Nachos ever had a best friend then it would definitely be fried chicken. This Gran Luchito classic is a recipe which we keep coming back to time and time again. Made delicious by our Chipotle Honey, make sure you have some serious hunger before you serve this dish.

Best Served With: Chilli Beef Nachos

2. Stuffed Jalapeños

Stuffed with our pulled pork what’s not to like about these jalapeños. Make them ahead of time and serve them whilst your nachos are baking in the oven.

Best Served With: Vegetarian Nachos

3. Chilli Con Carne Balls

If you have some leftover chilli con carne then these chilli con carne balls compliment nachos no end. Easy to make ahead of time and you can even freeze these balls – they might just steal the show!

Best Served With: Chicken Nachos

4. Frijoles

If you’re having Nachos for dinner then we like your style! Even though your Nachos might already be fully loaded with beans, some cheeky frijoles on the side never goes a miss.

Best Served With: Pulled Pork Nachos

5. Fried Chicken Wings

If you’re having the fully loaded chorizo nachos then why stop there? Deep-fried chicken wings will make your nacho dinner complete.

Best Served With: Chorizo Nachos 

6. Mexican Salad

There’s really no denying it, Nachos are a decadent treat. If you’re looking for something a little healthier then serve up this super healthy Mexican salad. It’s super tasty and will make your nacho dinner a little less guilty!

Best Served With: Vegan Nachos

7. Homemade Guacamole

Our favourite pairing with nachos has to be guacamole. Our homemade guacamole recipe is made extra special with a dollop or two of our Tomatillo Salsa. Make double as its surely not going to last!

Best Served With: Any of our Nachos Recipes

8. Mexican Black Beans

Who wouldn’t want Mexican black beans with their nachos! Most of our nachos recipes have Mexican beans in the recipes, however, if you wanted extra Cantina Beans (authentic black beans with their juices) on the side, well we don’t see anything wrong with that! You can garnish them with some finely chopped onion, tomatoes, chillies, coriander, some scoops of avocado and dollops of creme fraiche. Perfect for either dunking nachos into, or for dolloping more beans onto your nachos! 

Best Served With: Pulled Pork Nachos
