How long do you bake nachos at 425?
If you’re looking for a standard temperature to bake nachos, 425 degrees is a good starting point. Use the cheese as your guide for how long to bake nachos at 425. Check on the nachos once they’re in the oven for 10-15 minutes and bake them until the cheese has completely melted.
How to assemble homemade nachos
- Line chips in one layer on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper
- Lightly cover with ½ the cheese
- Add toppings
- Cover with remaining cheese
- Bake in the oven at 425 for 10-15 minutes until cheese melts. Alternatively, broil in the oven (watch carefully so the parchment paper and nachos don’t burn) for 2-3 minutes.
Tasty tips + ideas for homemade nachos
- What are standard nacho toppings? Shredded meat like this sous vide pulled pork, jalapenos, beans, guacamole, sour cream, and diced tomatoes or salsa.
- What kind of cheese should you use for nachos? The best cheese for nachos are cheeses that melt fast. Jack cheese, a Mexican cheese blend, Oaxaca cheese, or cheddar cheese are good options.
- How should I serve nachos? Serve the nachos right on the sheet pan or a large cast iron pan (once the pan cools). Or, transfer nachos to a large Mexican platter.
- How do you feed nachos to a crowd? Set out a nacho toppings bar for parties so everyone can DIY their favorite nachos. Bake a couple sheet trays with just cheese so the nachos are a blank canvas for your guests.
- How do you re-crisp nachos? Make homemade nachos crispy again in the oven for 2-5 minutes at 425 degrees.
- What should you do if your nachos came out too salty? Balance the saltiness of nachos with a squeeze of lime. The acid will help offset the saltiness.
