Air Fryer Nachos

Air Fryer Nachos

Introducing the 'Tower of Temptation' – the 21 Layer Nachos! Start with a base of Doritos then begin building! Salsa verde for "green" thinking, ground beef and black beans because every tower needs a sturdy foundation and Mexican cheese blend to be the glue! Throw in jalapeños for a spicy twist, diced onions for a layer of surprise and sour cream to cool off those hot debates. Top it with pico and guac – what's a tower without a crown? Hope your Jenga skills are as sharp as your nacho cravings!

Servings 8


  • 2 bags of Doritos (your choice of flavor)
  • 2 cups salsa verde
  • 1 pound tacos seasoned ground beef
  • 1 cup black beans
  • 4 cups grated Mexican blended cheese
  • 1 cup pickled jalapeños
  • 1/2 cup fresh jalapeños
  • 1 cup diced onions
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup pico de gallo
  • 1 cup guacamole


  • Start by pouring some Doritos of your choice flavor in the bottom of the air fryer basket. Next goes ground taco beef, Mexican blended cheese and salsa verde.
  • Put in some black beans and another layer of Doritos. On top of that goes more Mexican cheese, some pickled jalapeños and little bit of raw onions. Layer on more Doritos and cheese followed by pico de gallo.
  • Double up with another layer of salsa verde and black beans. The final layer of Doritos gets dumped on top of that, plus more beef and the thickest layer of cheese
  • Top off with some fresh jalapeños and bake in the air fryer at 400°F for 10 minutes. Once that’s finished, drizzle on sour cream and spoon on guac and more pico de gallo and enjoy!
