Love nachos but can't decide what kind to make? Don't choose! Have a nacho party, with everything from a Chipotle nacho casserole, Chicken Verde nachos, Veggie nachos, Ohio-Buffalo nachos to Philly Cheesesteak nachos!

No. 1: Chipotle Chicken Nacho Casserole

For this king of all nacho recipes, Rachael “tiles” her chips, smoky chipotle chicken, and cheese so that the ingredients are well distributed, heats, and then tops with salsa, jalapenos and sour cream. Nothing wrong with any of that!

Tip: Make your life easier by using a pre-cooked supermarket rotisserie chicken!

No. 2: Veggie Delight Nachos

If you’re looking for a winning, meatless nacho for your vegetarian guests, try this Veggie Delight Nachos recipe! We take Green Giant Roasted Veggie Tortilla Chips and pile on fresh Pico de Gallo, zesty lime, freshly ground pepper, salt, corn kernels, sweet onion slices, shredded Jack Cheese and black beans. Top with guacamole and sour cream.

No. 3: Chicken Verde Nachos

We love these nachos because of the secret verde sauce! This sauce is made with roasted poblano peppers, onions, garlic jalapenos, tomatillos, agave drizzle and cilantro leaves. Layer on shredded chicken, refried beans and shredded mozzarella. Dig in!

No. 4: BLT Nachos

Bacon, lettuce and tomato nachos? Why not! We take Food Should Taste Good Guacamole Chips and top with Pico de Gallo, shredded pepper jack cheese, chopped tomatoes and crispy bacon. Top with shredded romaine hearts and sour cream.

No. 5: Aloha Nachos

Bring a little Hawaiian flavor to your football game party. We take a bag of The Better Chip Chipotle Chips and layer on shredded Colby Jack cheese, chopped grilled pineapple, red onions, pan-fried ham, parsley, chives and pickled jalapeños. Is your mouthwatering yet?

No. 6: New York Deli Nachos

Instead of using nacho chips, we’re substituting potato chips! We take thick cut pastrami beef, onions and sauerkraut and pour it over the chips. We then add our creamy cheese sauce and top with Russian dressing, lettuce, onions and chipped deli pickles.

No. 7: Ohio-Buffalo Chips

Kettle potato chips are loaded with a creamy cheese sauce, blue cheese, hot sauce, chopped carrots, celery and onion. Please, make two trays. This will go fast!

No. 8: Philly Cheesesteak Nachos

We are taking the City of Brotherly Love's favorite sandwich, and turning it into nachos! Top toasted bread, with deli sliced roast beef, sautéed peppers and onions and a creamy Provolone cheese sauce.
