Everyone loves nachos, right? These nacho bites are so good! It brings all of the flavor of regular nachos without all the mess! And they’re easy to eat with your hands. A platter full will disappear quickly, trust me it’s happened here!

I checked out some of the most popular Game Day appetizers and realized that nachos was always at the top of the list. I figured out a way to enjoy this classic dish in a mess free bite.

Nacho Bites Ingredients

Tostitos Scoops
refried beans, prepared
ground beef
diced tomatoes with green chilies
onion, chopped
taco seasoning
shredded taco blend cheese

Nachos are always a good idea, I can’t tell you how many times I’ve made nachos for dinner! This one is so great because you get all of the nacho flavor in one (or two) bites!

You can even make them ahead of time and then just pop the lid back on the container to store in the fridge. Lay out your platter when your guests arrive, no one will have to wait for chips anymore! You can heat them back up in the oven.

This recipe makes ten servings. These are great to put on a platter for birthday parties or game day watch parties.
