Nachos Gluten-Free is a dish I love but, really, who doesn’t?  Ok, maybe some weirdo who doesn’t like cheese.  Nachos can be an appetizer, side dish, or if you do it right a meal all by itself!



Nachos Gluten-Free


So, you layer chips, beans, taco meat, cheese.  Then another layer of chips, beans, taco meat and cheese.  Two layers? YES!!!   You can used left over taco meat rather than making taco meat just for this.  Wonderful way to stretch your food budget!

OMG this smell so good once you are done baking them! but you aren’t finished yet! This is the first step in having a great plate of nachos to eat. 



Bake them until the cheese is melted and the chips are a little toasty.


Finishing the Nachos

Now top with liquid gold and garnish with chopped tomatoes or salsa, green onion, guacamole, and sour cream!  If you like olives or jalapenos add those too! Liquid Gold is the Tostito’s Cheese Dip that is in the recipe. 




This is just delicious or heaven on a plate.  My mother loves these to the point where she won’t get nachos when we go out anymore.  I’ve even served them to people from Belgium who loved them!   Easy to make and so delicious!

WARNING: This dish is only gluten-free.
