Build-Your-Own Nacho Bar

build your own nacho bar


We love having company over, but this summer has been a little tricky because we just moved and we don’t have a BBQ yet. I decided to throw a build-your-own nacho bar party instead of the typical hamburger/ hot dog dinner and it was so much fun. It was easy to prepare and everyone loved the food. Everyone can build their nachos however they like so everyone was happy. If you’re having a big group over you can assign any of these toppings for people to bring or have them bring their favorite.

Here are the list of toppings I had available:


In slow cookers I had:

Nacho Cheese Sauce
Taco seasoned beef
black beans
Salsa chicken would be another good choice (I didn’t use it this time though)

For this party I used my Bella linkable slow cookers to keep the warm items warm. These slow cookers are perfect when you’re entertaining and especially if you’re doing a nacho bar because the cheese sauce will get firm if it doesn’t stay warm. The slow cookers have a three different temperature controls and turning it to warm kept the cheese just right for our party. These slow cookers are nice because you can use them individually or link up to six slow cookers together! So if you wanted to add chicken to the mix for your nacho party you could just link an extra slow cooker
