Foil Packet Nachos

Foil Packet Nachos

We love throwing these FOIL PACKET NACHOS on the grill any time of year! Loaded with beef, tomatoes, green chiles (and more), and covered in melty cheese. Obsessed.

Have you guys noticed that Foil Packet recipes are literally ALL THE RAGE on fb and the internet!? They’re so fun, easy to clean up, and usually work like a charm! You might remember the Foil Packet Caesar Salmon we recently made, one of my favorites! I decided to give another foil recipe a shot and these Foil Packet Nachos were born. Spicy beef, tomatoes, black beans, green chiles, chips, and lots of cheese. OF COURSE there’s lots of cheese. They all melt together like a dream inside the foil tent, either in the oven or on the grill. I could really get into this trend!

You guys know I love me some Old El Paso, and their products kicked these Foil Packet Nachos up a huge notch. Their taco seasoning is SO simple to spice up my favorite recipes, and their green chiles bring just the right amount of heat. I’m not someone who likes this “burn your mouth off spicy”, so green chiles are my jam. You can make these nachos packets as small or as large as you’d like, making them for a crowd or an individual. You can make some with chicken and some with beef; some with jalapenos and some without! Fully customizable, delicious, and fun!

Have you tried other foil packet recipes? Which ones are your favorite? I’m way too excited to try these Shrimp Boil Foil Packets and Butter Garlic Herb Steak Foil Packets. The internet (and those fab bloggers) are onto something big. I hope you love these Foil Packet Nachos as much as we do!

Enjoy!!!
