Hey, you there! You need more nachos in your life.

I am completely sure of this. Whether you’re looking for an indulgent, quick meal that is both filling and snacky at the same time or you have a pile of guests to entertain, nachos are the way to go.

I mean honestly, who can say no to nachos? Here are some glorious things you can do to jazz up the classic cheat food:

1. Green Chile Chicken Nachos 

The home-fried tortilla chips are fabulously fresh and crispy, although you’re more than welcome to use store-bought chips. If you want to save even more time, you can make a simpler version of the chile verde chicken in your slow cooker, provided that you plan ahead a little!

2. Pepperoni Pizza Supreme Nachos

Because obviously, the only thing better than pizza is pizza nachos! For a doughier flavor, you can sub the tortilla chips for pita chips or even pizza crust chips.

3. California Roll Nachos

Want to kick these up another notch? Make these with wonton chips or even consider using nacho-flavored Doritos. Once the nachos are done in the oven, feel free to top with anything else you like in a sushi roll, like spicy tuna, sashimi cubes, eel sauce, even pineapple or mango. Anything goes!

4. Pineapple and Bacon Nachos With Brie and Chipotle-Orange Salsa 

These individually topped nachos are perfect for entertaining. They are a lot tidier than your standard pile, and the fun ingredients bring a classy sweet and savory balance. Your guests will devour them!

5. Grilled Sweet Potato Nachos

Healthy? YES, HEALTHY! With sweet corn, refried black beans, bold cilantro and a fabulous cheese sauce, this really doesn’t get much better. P.S. If you want to make it even healthier, you can use this vegetable-based vegan, gluten-free cheez sauce instead.

6. Waffle Breakfast Nachos

Honestly, I don’t know why people don’t mix tortilla chips and waffles more often. Waffles + savory flavors are just stupendous. Top these with anything you like.

7. Chicken Pad Thai Nachos

Can you nacho pad thai? Yes! Should you nacho pad thai? YES YES YES! It’s so good! Top with whatever you want — I won’t be mad if you want to throw in some shrimp, pork and/or fried tofu.

8. Korean Nachos With Kimchi and Bulgogi Beef

If you’ve never eaten kimchi with cheese before, you are missing out so hard. There’s just something magical that creamy cheese brings to the spicy, tangy crunch of kimchi. You must try it, and what better way to do so than piled high atop wonton chips and thinly sliced, sweet, tender bulgogi beef?
