Whether you are celebrating Cinco de Mayo, a birthday or entertaining friends and family, having a Nacho Bar is a great way to entertain guests. Have you ever met anyone who doesn’t like nachos?
This post is sponsored by our brand partners, NatureSweet®.
We love this easy-to-serve nacho bar idea for a party or events. Guests can serve themselves with a variety of toppings.
There’s no right or wrong answer for the toppings that you set out for your guests. We just suggest that you don’t skip the NatureSweet® tomatoes, because they do things right from the ground up!

How to Make a Nacho Bar
To make the table setting fun, we added a fiesta-style Table Runner and ramekins with fun fiesta-inspired colors! When setting up the nacho bar, we try to include different textures and layers so that it is visually appealing to the eye. Afterall, we eat with our eyes first!
Everyone loved this nacho bar idea! Each guest raved about being able to make their own nachos to their liking. And everyone loved all the fresh ingredients, which makes us feel less guilty about eating nachos.
How to Serve Nachos
We served our nachos on white round plates. If you are going to have a lot of guests and don’t want all the clean up, we suggest either strong paper plates or even cute boats that guests can build their nachos in.
Adult Beverages to Serve with a Nacho Bar
If you are looking to add an adult beverage to serve alongside the nacho bar try our Watermelon Basil Margarita, the Raspberry Margarita or Strawberry Grapefruit Margarita recipes! They are sure to impress your guests.
