Tortilla chips topped with juicy banh mi spiced meat, melty cheese and all your favorite frills! We’re taking Sheet Pan Nachos to the next level, friends! Easily customizable to use what you already have on hand, this quick dinner recipe is a win-win situation for everyone (especially the clean-up crew).
Nachos are one of my favorite cheat meals, ever. I grew up nuking them in the microwave (let’s be honest… you did too) and started to get more adventurous in my college days. I’ll continue to remain a fan of the traditional chips and cheese version, but there’s something extra special about piling on those additional toppings.
I absolutely love fusion cooking.
It enables me to use up whatever leftover ingredients from previous meals and ensures that nothing goes to waste. I did it with these Korean Crab Cake Sandwiches… as well as this Spinach and Artichoke Hot Crab Dip. So, so good.

NOTES ON BANH MI SHEET PAN NACHOS:
- These bad boys were inspired by my Brunch-Style Banh Mi Sandwiches. If you want to plop a few eggs on top, that’ll be a super delicious addition.
- I drizzled ours with garlic aioli and sriracha. Feel free to get creative here and use what you enjoy most. To make the aioli, simply whisk together a 1/2 cup mayonnaise with 4 minced cloves of garlic and 2 teaspoons of lemon juice. Taste and add salt, if necessary. You can also add a dab of mustard, if you prefer. FYI: my Alabama White Sauce would work great here as well.
- Please remember: it’s always best to shred your own cheese instead of buying the pre-packaged version. It’s worth the extra step, I promise.
