How to Make Sheet Pan Nachos

Sheet pan nachos are very simple and easy to make. They’re almost effortless if you have your ingredients prepped. If you have your bacon and chicken already cooked, all you have to do is layer your chips and toppings and bake the nachos in the oven for just a few minutes.

Sheet pan nachos are a great meal to make for a crowd as they’re not difficult to scale. Just double the chips and toppings and load up your sheet pan! Or, you can double the recipe and make two pans of nachos with no extra effort.

You can serve the whole sheet pan and you and your family can grab straight from that, or you can divide the nachos up among smaller plates too.
