Everyone loves Nachos, what’s not to love about tortilla chips piled high with lots of toppings! Nachos are our favourite movie night-in treat, but we also love to serve Nachos in the middle of the table with a few extra mains when entertaining so everyone can tuck in. Here’s our guide of what to serve with your Nachos to make a feast! Happy eating amigos!

1. Nacho Cheese Sauce

Here’s our recipe for nacho cheese sauce (Queso) prepared with good ingredients! One that’s easy to prepare at home and can be enjoyed either poured over a tasty tray of nachos or just as a nacho cheese dip with Gran Luchito Lightly Salted Tortilla Chips on the side.

2. Fried Chicken Tacos

Whether you are entertaining or having a Mexican night in, tacos are a perfect accompaniment for a plate of nachos shared in the middle of the table. We especially love these crispy fried chicken dolloped with our spicy Mango Habañero Salsa.

3. Easy Beef Tacos

Another favourite taco recipe to pair with nachos is this one with a delicious beef mince filling seasoned with our Chipotle Paste, tamari and a splash of beer.

4. Chicken Burrito

With tender pulled chicken and lots of the same delicious toppings, including guacamole and pico de gallo, all wrapped up inside, this Chicken Burrito is a perfect accompaniment to nachos. We also recommend using the tender pulled chicken as a nacho topping – delicious!

5. Halloumi Fajitas

If you’re having Nachos for dinner then we like your style! Fajitas are a great addition to your Mexican feast, not only are they quick and easy to put together but they are extra delicious when you lay out a bunch of toppings from your nachos to top the fajita wraps. Our Fajitas Recipe Collection features delicious vegetarian, chicken, steak, fish and even prawn options.

6. Quesadillas

Toasty and melty quesadillas are a delicious contrast to the tastes and textures you get from a plate of nachos. From a simple cheese quesadilla to ones filled with veggies, tender beef, chicken or pulled pork, we have lots of delicious quesadilla recipes to choose from. A must for any Cinco de Mayo feast!

8. 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 it’s surely not going to last!

9. 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.

10. Black Bean Burrito

A great all-round burrito recipe that uses our Cantina Beans, Red Pepper Salsa and our Mexican Rice recipe. In addition to beans and tortillas, red rice as it is known in Mexico is a staple of everyday meals.

11. Corn Ribs With Macha Mayo

Our corn rib recipe is a great side dish to pick at alongside your nachos. All you need to do is to season the corn ribs with Gran Luchito Smoky Chipotle Fajita and Taco Mix and a bit of olive oil. They are then oven cooked, with the edges getting all crispy and charred, and served with a delicious spicy macha mayo.
