You can expect the bake time for nachos to be about 5 to 10 minutes at 400 degrees: Since the ingredients that go into nachos are pre-cooked, you’re really just looking to make sure that everything is hot and that the cheese is melted. Nachos are a great choice for almost any gathering, whether you’re hosting a birthday party or just having a few friends over to watch the game. It’s also really easy to make nachos at home in your own oven! You’ll want to start by cooking your protein, whether it’s seasoned beef, chicken, or pork. Then, layer your chips, meat, cheese, and any other toppings you like; popular additions include beans, jalapeno peppers, and/or chopped onions. Once the nachos are done baking, you can top them with sour cream, salsa, guacamole, or all three!
