It is no secret, we love to eat! We especially love to eat while we camp. There is just something tastier about food cooked over the fire or in cast iron.
We came up with these grilled nachos that are so delicious.
They are easy to customize to accommodate various tastes.
Grilled Nachos Recipe
The ingredients for this recipe can be varied depending on what people like. Diana and I like sweet potato nachos, while the kids like to use corn tortilla chips.
We also used onion, tomato, avocado, green chiles, black beans, taco meat made with ground turkey, and cheese.
Other toppings could include jalapenos, pinto or refried beans, or different meats.
We cook ours over a campfire in a foil pan. We also make it at home in a cast iron skillet.
Your cook time for this recipe will depend on how thick your nachos are and how hot the fire is. Our sweet potato nachos had to cook a lot longer than the tortilla chips.
Be careful as these are hot when they come off the grill. They cool off fairly quickly in a foil pan.
No need to dirty up any dishes. We even ate with our fingers, so there weren’t any utensils to wash.
Don’t those look delicious? We make them on most camping trips and every few weeks on the grill in our backyard. We will caution you that they are slow to cool off when cooked in cast iron. Please do not burn yourself!
