Picture it! You are out with some really good friends, who are awesome company. What better way to enjoy the night, than with some good food. One of the go to meals for any night out on the town is a nice/huge platter of nachos. It is quick, delicious, filling and for some reason, it makes conversations that much better.

While most people finish their platter of nachos, there are some who carry it home hoping to make the nightly celebration transition into the next day. If you are one of those individuals and you are here because you want to find out how to reheat nachos, then you are on the right page.

Take a look at this quick guide that will highlight some of the options to consider when it comes to warming this food up.

The Oven Might Be Your Only Hope

Okay, let’s face it, it’s a really good idea to eat often nachos in one go. The reason for this is that if they are cold, you run the risk of them been super soggy and just honestly not tasting anything close to what you had when you first got them.

While the thought of enjoying your warmed nachos seems like an uphill battle, there is hope if you use your oven. When done correctly, your oven should have your nachos crispy (not like you originally had them), warm and tasty.


  • Preheat oven to 275°F.
  • Place nachos on a cookie/baking sheet.
  • Reheat until the nachos are crispy.
  • Don’t heat them up too much to the point where they start to burn.
  • Take out, let it cool off a little and enjoy.

Unplug Your Microwave

You must be wondering why I am telling you to unplug your microwave? Well, when it comes to reheating nachos, there is no possible way that you should even consider using the microwave. There is a strong possibility that you might not be able to recapture the awesome crunch and taste of fresh nachos by doing it in the oven, but by doing it in the microwave, you are setting yourself up for failure.

Nachos in the microwave are guaranteed to come out soggy and disgusting. There is no way around it. If you enjoy eating warmed up mush, then by all means go ahead. It is honestly not worth it and you will probably not enjoy it as well. But if you want to do it, then don’t say I didn’t warn you.
