Nachos with salsa is among my favourite snacks. Fully-loaded nachos with cheese is another one I love having. Have you tried making your own nachos at home? It is an easy nachos recipe that even beginner cooks can make easily. It is guilt free if you make it in the airfryer like me or bake it. Imagine how happy you will make your family and friends. And even if you deep fry it, I prefer it to the extra-salty, super expensive nachos that we buy from supermarket.
So here’s how to make homemade nachos:
Homemade Nachos Recipe
This is an easy recipe to make homemade nachos. Here I’ve shared two versions – made in airfryer and deep fried. Try the recipe that suits you.
- 1 cup cornmeal or maize flour makki ka aata
- 4 tbsp. all-purpose flour maida
- ¼ tsp. salt
- 2 tbsp. oil or butter
- seasoning like carrom seeds oregano, chilli flakes (optional)
- Oil for deep frying if frying
Take cornmeal along with all-purpose flour in a bowl. Add salt and mix well. Now add melted butter or oil to the mix and add so that a grainy mix is formed.
Add some warm water to form a soft dough. Keep aside for 10 minutes.
Roll out Nachos
Take a large ball of dough and roll it out using a rolling pin. Use some dry flour to prevent the dough from sticking.
Use a fork to prick all over. This helps to prevent the nachos from puffing up.
Now cut the rolled out circle into triangle shapes.
Preheat your airfryer at 180 deg C for 6 minutes. Put in the nachos triangles and airfry for 8 minutes.
Your crispy airfried nachos are ready to eat. Have them with guacamole, salsa or any other dip of your choice.
To Deep Fry
Take oil in a pan. Heat oil and fry the nachos in oil till golden brown. Drain on absorbent paper. Serve crispy nachos.
- This is a very simple recipe.
- Do follow the instructions as given.
- You can sprinkle your nachos with chilli flakes, oregano, garlic flakes etc. as per your choice and serve.
Take 1 cup cornmeal or maize flour along with 4 heaped tbsp. all-purpose flour, salt and oil together.

Pre-heat airfryer to 180 deg C for 5 minutes. Now airfry nachos for about 6-8 minutes till crispy and slightly browned. Your airfried nachos are ready to eat. Serve with fresh salsa or any other dip of your choice. You could also deep fry these nachos in hot oil.
Isn’t this really simple? Your homemade crunchy nachos are ready. You can store them in an air-tight container for a week or two. We normally consume them on the same day.
