Loaded nachos is one of my favorite party dishes. I ate them for the first time during a family vacation to California, when my cousin took us to a popular Mexican restaurant near his college campus. I was only a kid and I don’t remember much else from that trip, but I remember those nachos.

I’m fortunate to now live in San Diego, where loaded nachos are easily accessible. Taco shops are everywhere in San Diego, with many open 24 hours. I rarely make my own loaded nachos because it’s usually easier to drive to a taco shop and pick up an order rather than having to buy over a dozen ingredients and make all the individual layers I like to include in my loaded nachos.

However, I recently tried Rojo’s new Black Bean, Corn & Chorizo 5-Layer Dip. The dip packaging includes a recipe for loaded nachos, which of course got me excited to make my own loaded nachos at home. Using the dip made thing so much easier!

Rojo’s makes a premium line of artisanal, restaurant-style salsas and dips that are made in small batches to deliver homemade tasting flavor and freshness in every bite. The new Black Bean, Corn & Chorizo 5-Layer Dip is gluten-free and stacked with five layers: protein-packed black beans, Rojo’s signature fresh corn, chili and black bean salsa, chorizo queso, rich sour cream, topped off with sharp cheddar cheese.

I really enjoyed this dip and it did taste homemade to me. When my husband tasted it with the nachos, he actually thought I had made everything from scratch.

The nachos would actually be fine with just the 5 layers of dip, but I also wanted to add some carne asada and guacamole. This dip actually helped make my loaded nachos even fancier because I’ve never had loaded nachos with chorizo queso and a corn and chili salsa.

These nachos were so easy to put together and we had such an enjoyable time eating them. I have one more container left so we plan on making it again this weekend and inviting over some friends.

Loaded Nachos

Servings: 6
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Course: Appetizer
Cuisine: Mexican
Loaded nachos topped with salsa, guacamole, black beans, cheddar cheese, sour cream and carne asada.


  • 1 bag of Mexican restaurant-style tortilla chips
  • 4 oz cooked carne asada thinly sliced
  • 8 oz guacamole
  • 1 container of Rojo’s Black Bean Corn & Chorizo 5-Layer Dip
  • 1/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 tbsp roughly chopped cilantro
  • 1 lime sliced into wedges


  • Spread chips across a large serving plate. Sprinkle meat across. Carefully top with the Rojo’s dip one of two ways. You can invert the container onto the chips and then spread the dip out slightly so that most of the chips are covered. If you want to preserve the same layer order as it is inside the container, scoop it out with a very large serving spoon and place on top of chips. I was able to get most of the dip out at once using the serving spoon.
  • Add guacamole over the dip. Top with additional 1/3 cup cheddar cheese. Garnish with cilantro. Serve with lime wedges which can be squeezed over chips right before eating.
