Flavorful Sloppy Joe Nachos – A Tex-Mex Delight!

The Sloppy Joe Foundation

Our journey into Sloppy Joe Nachos begins with a scrumptious sloppy joe made from ground beef. Forget about canned sloppy joe sauce – this recipe showcases how effortlessly you can create a delicious mixture using basic pantry ingredients. Whether served on a bun or as part of this nacho extravaganza, this sloppy joe recipe is a keeper!

Choosing the Right Chips

While there was a heated debate about the choice of chips, Fritos Scoops corn chips emerged as the triumphant winner for their sturdy structure that holds up under the weight of the ingredients. However, feel free to opt for tortilla chip scoops if you prefer. The key is to select chips that can withstand the layers of flavor about to be piled on.

The Cheesy Component

Sharp cheddar cheese is our cheese of choice for these nachos, offering a rich and robust flavor that perfectly complements the Sloppy Joe base. Nevertheless, feel free to experiment with your favorite cheese or a blend of cheeses for a personalized touch.

Toppings Galore

While toppings are optional, they add a burst of freshness and crunch to your Sloppy Joe Nachos. Sour cream, green onions, tomatoes, and jalapeno peppers are our top picks, but you can customize the toppings to suit your taste. For a communal serving approach, consider placing the toppings in small dishes on the side, allowing everyone to personalize their nacho experience.
