Sloppy Joe Nachos

Nachos are a dinner staple at our house. I use them as a vessel to take advantage of whatever leftovers I have in the fridge (within reason). For this recipe I happened to have leftover sloppy joe meat. I made the batch with this recipe.

it was delicious, easy, and made quite a lot! Making extra of one recipe with the intention of repurposing it for another recipe is a great way to minimize cooking overload during the week.

These Nachos take 10 minutes or less to throw together! No joke!

What you will need:

  • Bag of tortilla chips (any kind you like)
  • 2 Cups sloppy joe meat mixture.
  • 1 Cup Corn
  • 3 green onions (whites and greens sliced)
  • 8 oz. shredded cheese (sharp cheddar, Monterey Jack, cheddar jack, mozzarella, mild cheddar, taco blend) you can use whatever you have or a combination of several. Sometimes I have small amounts of cheese in several bags. I just throw it all on there if I think it will go with the flavor profile.
  • Additional options: diced tomatoes, jalapeños, cilantro, or diced red onion


***turn on your broiler

  1. You cannot mess this up. Nachos are, literally, messy so don’t sweat it.
  2. I use a sheet pan (more surface area for maximum topping coverage per nacho) covered with parchment (easy clean-up).
  3. Cover the pan with tortilla chips. I usually use close to the entire bag for my family. We definitely have leftovers, but my husky takes them to work for lunch.
  4. Add the additional toppings in any order (except the cheese): sloppy joe mix, corn, & green onions.
  5. Cover with cheese.
  6. Place the pan under the broiler and keep an eye on it! Mine usually are ready in 2-3 minutes.

I served a tomato, avacado, & mango salad as a side. Look for the full recipe this week!

Happy eating,
