BLT Nacho Recipe

BLT Nachos Recipe

Last week I introduced my Nacho Recipe Series. If your family loves nachos, be sure to follow along each week as I share a fun variation on an old favorite. I’ll be sharing recipes ranging from savory to sweet.

Up this week is this super yummy BLT Nachos Recipe! A spin on two old favorites, this flavor combo is great for any night of the week, or to impress your friends on game day. This dish was born out of boredom and a great sale on tortilla chips mixed with a coupon. Some of my best creations come from figuring out a way to use up what I have on hand in my pantry, fridge or freezer.

We love Mexican food but I wanted something a little different – and what doesn’t taste good with bacon? These nachos are also a great way to take advantage of the abundance of tomatoes in the summer months. Using up the harvest is one of those things that tends to push me in to recipe creation mode…otherwise known as “winging it!”. ;-)

Speaking of winging it, here is a tip! The recipe below calls for ranch dressing, but I tend to have ranch dressing packets on hand more than I have a bottle of dressing. On those days, I mix sour cream, a little bit of dry ranch seasoning and little bit of milk (to thin the mixture) until I get a sauce that’s the consistency that I like.

My family ended up loving these nachos, and I’m excited to share them with you!

BLT Nachos Recipe

Prep time: 

Cook time: 

Total time: 

  • ½ bag tortilla chips (I like Scoops)
  • 1 ½ cups mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup chopped lettuce
  • 1 large tomato chopped (cherry tomatoes also work great)
  • ½ cup crumbled bacon pieces- prepare yourself or buy packaged
  • ¼ cup sour cream
  • ¼ cup ranch
  1. Pre-heat your oven on the broil setting.
  1. Spread nachos over parchment lined baking sheet. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese, and bacon. Broil on high until cheese starts to bubble and brown, about 3-4 minutes. Remove from oven. Add chopped tomatoes, and lettuce. Drizzle with sauce.
  1. Mix sour cream and ranch. For a pretty presentation, place in a small baggie, snip the corner off and squeeze gently in a pattern. Tip: you can use sour cream, dry ranch mix and a little bit of milk in a pinch!
