Cheeseburger Nachos

Prep Time
40 min
12 servings

If you can’t decide between serving nachos or cheeseburgers at your next party, then don’t! Homemade chips each topped with all the bacony, cheesy, meaty flavors of a great burger are the marriage of the century — you’ll definitely say “I do.”



3 6"
corn tortillas
tbsp vegetable oil
pickle spears, finely chopped
small white onion, finely chopped
lb(s) ground beef
Kosher salt
slice American cheese, quartered
slice cooked bacon, crumbled
Ketchup and yellow mustard, for serving


Step 1

Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Brush both sides of the tortillas with 1 tablespoon oil. Stack the tortillas and cut the pile into quarters. Spread the chips out in a single layer on a baking sheet and bake until crisp and just beginning to turn golden brown, rotating the pan halfway through, 14 to 16 minutes. (Leave the oven on.)

Step 2

Meanwhile, mix the pickles and onions in a small bowl and set aside. Heat the remaining tablespoon oil in a medium skillet. Add the ground beef and 1/2 teaspoon salt and cook over medium heat, breaking it up into small pieces and stirring occasionally, until browned and cooked through, 8 to 10 minutes. Stir in 16 pieces of the American cheese and cook, stirring often, until the cheese is melted, 2 to 3 minutes. 

Step 3

Evenly divide the beef mixture among the tortilla chips. Place one piece of American cheese over the beef on each chip and bake until the cheese is melted, 4 to 5 minutes. Evenly top each chip with the pickle mixture, and then with some bacon. Top the chips with a squeeze of ketchup and mustard and serve.
