Baked Pesto Nachos Recipe


  • 1 large bag of tortilla chips
  • 2 cups of shredded Dutch Cheeseman Pesto Cheese
  • 1 cup of cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 cup of sliced black olives
  • 1/4 cup of finely chopped red onion
  • 1/4 cup of fresh basil leaves, chopped
  • 1 jalapeño, thinly sliced (optional for added heat)
  • 1/2 cup of sour cream (optional, for serving)
  • 1/2 cup of guacamole (optional, for serving)
  • Freshly ground black pepper (to taste)


  1. Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).

  2. Prepare the Nachos: Spread the tortilla chips evenly on a large baking sheet or oven-safe platter.

  3. Add the Toppings: Sprinkle the shredded Pesto Cheese generously over the tortilla chips. Ensure the chips are well covered for that perfect melty goodness.

  4. Add Vegetables: Distribute the cherry tomatoes, black olives, red onion, and jalapeño slices (if using) evenly over the cheese-covered chips.

  5. Bake: Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven and bake for 10-15 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly, and the edges of the chips are golden brown.

  6. Garnish: Remove the nachos from the oven and sprinkle with freshly chopped basil leaves and a dash of freshly ground black pepper.

  7. Serve: Serve the baked pesto nachos hot, with sour cream and guacamole on the side for dipping, if desired.

Enjoy your unique and delicious Baked Pesto Nachos! Perfect for parties, game nights, or any time you're craving a cheesy snack with a flavorful twist.
