Paleo Nacho Casserole

If you love nachos (who doesn’t?), you are going to want to make this dairy-free and paleo nacho casserole. It’s creamy and crispy at the same time, and has a ridiculously addicting flavor combo!

The other day, a friend asked me, “What would your last meal be?” Without hesitation, I said, “Nachos. Loaded with EVERYTHING.” Because, friends, nachos are just the best kind of food filled with everything I love, and I wouldn’t be mad if it was the only thing I can eat for the rest of my life.

While my stomach can’t handle cheese and corn chips to have nachos regularly, I can make my own version at home using my Paleo Cauliflower Nacho Cheese and Siete Foods tortilla chips. Oh, what a world we live in today.

So, the other day, I made this Paleo Nacho Casserole on a whim for dinner, and it turned out fantastic. And I’m so excited to share it with you!

I’ll be honest. I was a bit nervous about how this recipe would turn out because I never cooked with my Paleo Cauliflower Nacho Cheese. However, the cheesiness and the creaminess really come through in this recipe, and the crunchiness of the tortilla chip topping with that base is just a magical combo.

If you don’t have access to Siete Foods tortilla chips and you do okay with eating corn, you can use regular corn chips. You can even go with not using any chips at all, and just make the base as a dip for veggies. Top the whole thing with your favorites like avocado slices, guacamole, jalapeño slices, hot sauce, and/or chopped cilantro, and you have a ridiculously delicious meal that you won’t want to stop eating!

    Oh I think this is going to be made on our next movie night. I love Siete Foods tortilla chips so I bet this is just amazing! (and I can’t have cheese, so it’s a lifesaver too)

      Aw, hopefully soon. You can make these with sweet potato or plantain chips instead!

    I want those chips! WOW! The ingredients are perfect! I will be keeping my eye out – I can do corn but not as often as I would love to have nachos 🙂 Ha!

    I do a version of this but we call it Baked Nachos. It’s loaded with all the appropriate nacho players like taco meat, beans, cheese, crema, and tons of avocados. I love your Paleo version.

    I would eliminate all salt. Other spices work nicely. Hubby liked it which is a big plus. Creamy texture but not “cheesy”. Might add some bell pepper to the sauté mix to add color and texture. A kind of weird aftertaste, might be the turmeric.
