I love getting loaded nachos at restaurants- it’s one of my favorite things. However, I wasn’t sure if that could be considered a “meal” (in my eyes, it totally is. But not so much for my husband . . .), so I decided to put together all my favorite nacho toppings in a casserole.
The end result was a delicious dinner that is perfect for feeding the masses. It was incredibly easy to make and full of flavor. This dish is so simple and only requires a few simple ingredients, that the whole family will love.
This is the perfect meal for those busy nights, when you have no idea what to serve your family, or don’t know what everyone will eat.
Throw this casserole together and dinner is served.
can i prepare this the night before and bake it the next day?
This recipe is great for making ahead of time, keeping in your fridge, then making later the next night.
The tortilla chips may be just a little more soggy, and not keep their crunch as well, but you could make it the day before and it will still be delicious.
We recommend watching it carefully as it bakes, because it may take a few extra minutes to heat all the way through.
does this recipe freeze well?
This recipe freezes pretty well, but again, your tortilla chips will be a little more soggy, just because they will get a little wet from the sauce and ingredients.
We recommend maybe trying tortillas if you are trying to make it less soggy. Ether way, it will get a little softer with time.
We also recommend letting it thaw before putting it in the oven to bake. We advise putting it in the fridge 24 hours before baking it, to allow it to thaw.
If you put it in the oven frozen, the casserole ill burn on the edges and still be a little cold in the middle.
