You'll love these
I've been in love with Reuben sandwiches for as long as I can remember. The salty corned beef, the vinegary bite of the sauerkraut, creamy Swiss cheese, and... let's not forget the Thousand Island dressing (extra on the side, please!).
So adding these flavors to a bed of tortilla chips is a game-changer. This twist on a classic appetizer is perfect for game-day snacking or movie night munching. These Reuben nachos make a great weekend lunch too!
These Irish nachos consist of tortilla chips layered with traditional Reuben sandwich ingredients.
- Corned beef - Deli corned beef - or pastrami - is a great shortcut ingredient. You can also use leftover Crock Pot Corned Beef.
- Sauerkraut - canned works perfectly for these nachos.
- Swiss and Monterey Jack cheese - Swiss cheese is traditional and I love combining it with Monterey Jack. It's mild and melts beautifully.
- Thousand Island dressing - a MUST on any Reuben sandwich and the perfect way to finish off these nachos.
How to assemble
Reuben nachos couldn't be easier to make. On a sheet pan, layer half of the tortilla chips with half of the cheese, corned beef, and sauerkraut. Make a second layer with the remaining half of the ingredients.
Bake until the cheese melts and the chips turn lightly brown. Remove from the oven, drizzle with the Thousand Island dressing, and garnish with scallions. I love serving with extra dressing on the side for dipping.
Can I reheat nachos?
Yes. To reheat, place the Reuben nachos on a sheet pan and place in a 400-degree oven for 5-10 minutes until the cheese is melted and the chips are crisp.
