Quick & Easy Doritos Nachos
These delicious cheesy Nachos make the perfect treat for movie night.
Serve with your favourite toppings – see my suggestions below.
Why I love them
So easy to make – Use your favourite leftovers to top them - Rotisserie Chicken. Chilli.
Adaptable – There really is no end to variations here. Add your favourite flavours and enjoy! Here are a Chicken and Veg Version.
Quick to make - Ready to eat in 15 minutes.
Can be Air Fried - See this recipe.
Doritos – I love the Chilli ones, Cheese ones or the Lime ones. But you can use any Doritos flavour.
Ground Lamb – or Beef.
Taco Seasoning - You can always make your own seasoning and add spices of your choice.
I sometimes add extra garlic, smoked paprika and cayenne.
Cheddar Cheese – Grated. I prefer to buy the block. The coating on the grated cheese means it doesn’t melt as nicely.
I also like Red Leicester and prefer Mature Cheddar. Feta is also great.
So many options here, try:
Spring Onions, sliced
Tomatillo Salsa (Check the International aisle)

Add Oil to a pan and then add the meat.
Scatter over the Taco Seasoning.
Cook till done.

Add more toppings and serve.
Try with your favourite variety of Doritos.
Make with leftover rotisserie chicken or a diced chicken.
Make a veggie version with black beans (recipe coming soon).
Use your favourite Cheese - Feta, Red Leicester.
Add your favourite Spices - Smoked Paprika, Garlic, Cayenne, Cumin are good options.
Toppings - Use your favourite toppings. Some of mine are listed above.
Tips for Quick & Easy Doritos Nachos
It is best to grate the Cheese yourself. Pre grated cheese has a coating which stops it from clumping together, this however also affects the way it melts.
It is better to have multiple layers then to try and have lots of toppings per layer.
Line the tray with greaseproof paper or foil.
Don’t be tempted to over bake otherwise the Doritos will darken at the edges and taste bitter.
You can cook the meat ahead and use it when needed. Just reheat slightly first. The meat can be made up to 2 days ahead. Store in an airtight container.
It is best to eat Doritos Nachos as soon as they are made but they can be served up to 30 minutes after making them.
