These are “nacho average” loaded nachos.
This recipe brings unique ingredients that yield fabulous flavor to an American favorite. And on top of that, you can serve fresh veggies to your family under the guise of indulgent nachos!
Fancy Loaded Nachos are healthy (well, mostly!), delicious, beautiful, and super easy. Just chop, sprinkle and bake.

Nachos can be served as an appetizer or an entrée. I also love how versatile this dish can be. Make it vegetarian, add your favorite meat, or top it off with a couple fried eggs. Feel free to take the liberty of adding or subbing your favorite toppings for a perfectly customized dish.
Fancy Loaded Nachos Recipe:
- - Bag of tortilla chips (for a more toppings-heavy dish, use about half the bag)
- - 2 radishes, thinly sliced
- - ½ can black beans, rinsed and drained
- - 2 oz. can sliced black olives, rinsed and drained
- - Cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
- - 1 garlic clove, minced
- - 2 tomatillos, peeled and julienned (option: sub green tomatoes)

- - 1 cup white cheddar cheese, shredded
- - 1 avocado, diced
- - ¼ cup chopped cilantro
- - Handful of sliced green onion

- 1. Preheat oven to 400 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper to keep the nachos from sticking.
- 2. Fill the tray with a layer of nachos. Try to sort out small, broken pieces.
- 3. Evenly cover the nachos with radishes, black beans, olives, tomatoes, garlic, tomatillos, meat of choice, and jalapeños. Then top with half of both the green onion and cilantro.
- 4. Top with both feta and cheddar cheeses.
- 5. Bake for 10 minutes or until cheese starts to turn golden.
- 6. Remove from oven and top with avocado and the remaining green onion and cilantro. Serve with lettuce and generous dollops of sour cream.
