Nachos are one of my favorite foods & this nachos quesadillas recipe is a fun twist on a popular appetizer. These nacho quesadillas could be served as a party appetizer or as the main family meal.
Whenever I go out for appetizers with friends, nachos are always my first choice! In this recipe, I added my favorite nacho toppings (chicken, green peppers, onions) but you can switch it up with your favorites like jalapeños, diced tomatoes, black olives, black beans, bacon bits, etc.
Nacho Quesadillas Recipe:
This recipe makes a great game day party food! I always serve all dips on the side – sour cream, salsa, nacho cheese sauce and guacamole. Some people put the salsa right in the quesadilla but I find that it makes them too soggy.
This recipe makes one large quesadilla – enough to feed 2-3 people as a meal or 4+ people as an appetizer. The fries featured here on the side are my Garlic Ranch Potatoes.
