Jalapeno Sloppy Joe Sheet Pan Pachos

Jalapeno Sloppy Joe Sheet Pan Pachos are actually nachos made with potatoes….hence PACHOS. They’re topped with sloppy joe beef filling, shredded white cheddar cheese and sliced mild jalapeno peppers, baked then topped with cilantro, black olives and sour cream. They’re the perfect game day snack, a great throw together dinner or even brunch!


Pachos. Meaning…potato nachos.

They’re a real thing…

They’re inspired by these Sloppy Joes. And if you haven’t tried those, you need to. They’re life changing.

I thinly sliced regular potatoes, fried them and topped them with all the sloppy joe goodies, popped them in the oven and – viola!

Probably one of the best thing about these is how customizable they are. Did you make Jamaican Jerk Chicken sandwiches the night before? Shred that up and make Jerk Chicken Pachos. Pot Roast? Pot Roast Pachos. You could even make Veggie Pachos!

Put your own spin on them if the sloppy joe element isn’t your thing.

This is one of those things that you don’t even need a plate for if you wanted to be as minimalistic as possible. You basically pull them out of the oven and everybody just stands around the pan devouring them.

Who needs plates? They won’t last long, anyway.

If you think about it, it’s not that much different than using potato chips as a vehicle to devour dip. I mean, it’s literally the same thing. The texture is a little different, but that’s about it.

    I’m a big fan of nachos, but truth be told, this version with potato rounds makes a good thing even better in my book. What a great casual meal idea! Love it! Heading over to get the recipe for your Mexican Street Fries now, too… You’re killin’ me! 🙂
