To make these loaded sheet pan nachos you will need

½ tablespoon Chili Powder

1 teaspoon Kosher Salt

1 teaspoon Garlic Powder

½ teaspoon Onion Powder

½ teaspoon Cumin

¼ teaspoon Black Pepper

1 tablespoon Canola Oil

1 pound Ground Turkey

8 ounce can Tomato Sauce

1 tablespoon Water

6-8 ounces Corn Tortilla Chips

 

Toppings Ideas for the nachos

¼ cup Diced Tomatoes

¼ cup Black Olives, chopped

2-3 tablespoons Green Onions, chopped

¼ cup canned Corn, drained and rinsed

¼ cup Black Beans, drained and rinsed

8 ounces Cheddar Cheese, finely shredded

Hot Sauce, for serving

Sour Cream, for serving

 

Make the turkey taco meat

In a small bowl, mix together the chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, cumin, salt, and pepper.

 

Heat the canola oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the ground turkey to the skillet and sprinkle with the seasoning mix. Stir, to mix well.

 

Cook the ground turkey until browned, approximately 4-5 minutes. Stir the turkey frequently, breaking up the pieces with a wooden spoon or spatula.

 

Add the tomato sauce and the water to the skillet, stir well to combine. Lower the heat to medium-low, cover and cook about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.

 

Cook’s Notes:

I like to add the tablespoon of water to the empty can of tomato sauce and give it a quick swirl to get every last drop out.

 

While the meat cooks, preheat oven to 350°F.

 

Build the nachos

Add a layer of tortilla chips to a 9×13 sheet pan or shallow baking dish. Do not overlap the chips. Sprinkle about ½ the ground turkey over the tortilla chips.

 

Sprinkle about half of the corn, black beans, black olives and green onions. Then top with about half the cheddar cheese.

 

Add another layer of tortilla chips, and top with the remaining ground turkey, corn, black beans, black olives, and green onions. Add the remaining cheese.

 

Reserve the chopped tomatoes and a few green onions to garnish when the nachos come out of the oven.

 

Bake the nachos for 10 minutes or so, until the cheese is melted. Top with the chopped tomatoes and some extra chopped green onions, if desired.

 

Serve the loaded sheet pan nachos with sour cream hot sauce on the side. Enjoy!

 

Serves 6-8
