I'm not sure this qualifies as a proper recipe, but it's fun and easy and quick to prepare. These are definitely not traditional nachos—more like pizza ingredients but on tortilla chips instead of a base.

Toppings are up to you. I used my favorite pizza toppings: mushrooms, peppers, purple onion and olives. Keep in mind that you'll want to cut the veggies pretty small so that you can get lots of them on each chip.

One more tip: if possible, use a block of cheese and grate it yourself. Cheese that comes pre-shredded is usually coated with a solution to prevent it from sticking together, but the downside is that the cheese does not melt as well. Go for the block! Always!


  • tortilla chips
  • tomato sauce
  • mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • mushrooms, sliced
  • peppers, finely diced
  • purple onions, finely diced
  • olives, sliced


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a cookie sheet pan with parchment paper
  2. Spread a layer of tortilla chips over the pan.
  3. Drizzle the chips with tomato sauce and sprinkle with shredded cheese.
  4. Add your toppings and another layer of cheese.
  5. Bake on 400°F until cheese is bubbly—approximately 10 minutes. Be careful not to leave them in the oven too long because the chips will start to burn.
  6. Serve immediately.
