Sheet Pan Waffle Fry Nachos
Tailgating has been a part of my life since I was a small child.
Whether we were gathered with family/friends in the parking of my hometown alma matter or watching the game at our favorite local hangout, food was always a central part of football season.
Fast forward 25 years and our game day wouldn’t be complete without snacks like my Sheet Pan Waffle Fry Nachos.
Because what’s not to love about crispy waffle fries covered in a spicy cheese dip full of sausage you can share with friends!
And don’t even get me started about the toppings.
My mom’s spicy nacho cheese dip was always a tailgate staple. The recipe has evolved over the years, but Pace® Picante sauce is still the star ingredient!
Paul and I like hotter flavors, you know how we feel about recipes with handpicked jalapeños and genuine southwest flavor. My Southwest Chicken Quinoa Salad was a hit this summer!
But for company we keep it keep a little tamer with the medium versions.

I added black beans and corn to our wachos? waffchos? for extra texture, while Pace® Chunky Salsa from Walmart added a little extra spice.
Waffle fry nachos seems like quite a name, plus if totchos and chipchos exist…
After that the toppings are up to you.
Like sour cream and guacamole, dollop away.
I like how fresh diced red onions and cilantro balance the richness of the cheese. If you like it, pile it on!
And you always want to add a squeeze of fresh lime juice.
