Here is the best homemade healthy Beef Nachos recipe with crispy tortillas and other goodies. These healthy nachos are the ultimate nachos for those who have a unique taste.
They are tangy, creamy, and a bit spicy and will become a hearty portion of your favorite appetizer. Beef Nachos are perfect for your next game-day gathering, party, or family fun meal.


Step 1

Let’s make amazing delicious Beef Nachos. First, preheat the oven to 204°C (400°F).

Step 2

Cut the tortillas into eight triangles and spread them evenly between 2 baking sheets. Spray them with cooking oil, season with salt and black pepper. Bake your healthy nacho tortillas until they are crispy and golden brown for about 5 to 7 minutes.
Check the tortillas after 5 minutes to ensure they aren’t burnt. You do not want them to be too brown as they will be baked more with the cheese later. Remove the tortillas from the oven and let the chips cool and harden on a wire cooling rack.

Step 3

You can start making the beef for your healthy nachos. Heat the oil over medium-high flame in a large nonstick skillet. Add the mushrooms and onions and cook them until they begin to soften for 2 minutes. Stir the mixture frequently.
Add the ground beef to the pan and cook it with the vegetables. You can break up the clumps formed by using a wooden spoon. Cook it until the meat is no longer pink.

Step 4

Add the chili powder, cumin, garlic, salt, and pepper. Stir to cook the beef and veggies thoroughly. Add the tomato sauce, and stir well until everything is thoroughly combined.

Step 5

Bring the healthy nachos topping to a simmer. Reduce the heat to low and cook it until the mixture has thickened and flavors are blended for about 10 minutes.

Cooking Notes

There are two baking methods available for the fabulous homemade Beef Nachos. In the first method, you need to layer the healthy nachos. Scatter half of the chips on a baking sheet, then spoon half of the beef mixture over the top. Top that with half of the grated Cheddar Cheese. Next, add the remaining half of the chips, followed by the rest of the cooked beef mixture, finally finish by sprinkling the remaining half of the cheese on top. Bake it until the cheese is melted and bubbly for about 10 minutes.
Remove your fabulous Beef Nachos from the oven, top with sour cream, black olives, fresh cilantro, and sliced jalapeno. Serve immediately!

In the second baking method, you need to spread the chips among the two baking sheets evenly. Next, spoon the beef mixture among the crispy chips.
Sprinkle them with grated cheese evenly. Bake the healthy nachos until the cheese is melted for about 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and top with sour cream, black olives, fresh cilantro, and sliced jalapeno. Side it with your favorite dressing and enjoy!
