“Nacho” Average Toppings Bar: Bring On the Toppings!

No matter the occasion, you can never go wrong with nachos. Why not take it up a notch with a leveled-up nacho bar? While there’s nothing wrong with a simple nacho cheese and ground beef combo, Publix has a large selection of fresh and unique options that will make your nacho bar one to remember.

Chip In

In the nacho world, tortilla chips are a crucial part of any perfect nacho creation! Whether you’re building a classic dish with white corn tortilla chips or dreaming up something unique with black bean & quinoa tortilla chips, we have plenty of options ready for dippin’. Need more inspiration? You also can’t go wrong with organic blue or yellow corn tortilla chips.

Get Cheesy

Is there anything more beautiful than the perfect cheese pull? The Publix Deli has specialty cheeses from all around the world. Be sure to stop by the specialty cheese case when planning your nacho bar to incorporate some truly unique flavors, like Hoop Cheddar or Gruyere.

Prep the Protein

We initially think of ground beef and taco seasoning when we think of nachos, but there are many other ways to add protein to the bar! Head to your local Publix Deli and pick up some chicken tenders or chili! Thinking more classic? Chicken and pork are strong choices. Love seafood? Shrimp might be just what you’re looking for. Keeping it vegetarian? Black beans or tofu can add a different texture without the meat. If you do select a meat, be sure to cook it with your favorite seasonings before tossing it on top of your chips.

Keep It Fresh

While the tortilla chips will bring the crunch, you can never go wrong with some more crisp texture on top! Vegetables like peppers, onions and jalapeños are perfect options. There are plenty of other fresh options we love including, too, like corn, avocados, tomatoes and cilantro! You may even want to consider a sweet option like pineapple or mango. Adding a drizzle of fresh lime juice is sure to send your creation over the top.

Dip Into Fun

If you thought these nachos couldn’t get any better, think again. Guacamole, sour cream and salsa are perfectly scoopable ways to add yet another layer of flavor, but the options don’t end there. Have you ever considered including our famous buffalo chicken dip on your nachos? How about the jalapeno popper dip? If you’re a fan of spicy flavors, be sure to drizzle a little of your favorite hot sauce on top!

Put It Together For …

After you have your next-level bar all set up, heat up the oven and have each person build their nachos on aluminum foil. Layer up the chips, cheese and protein, then pop each creation in the oven until the cheese is perfectly melted! From there, pile on the fresh ingredients and enjoy!
