Nacho Pull-Apart Bread: For People Who Find Nachos Too Healthy

Nacho Pull-Apart Bread — Thrillist Recipes
Drew Swantak/Thrillist

Because anything that can be stuffed can be stuffed with nachos (except teddy bears. Please don't do that.), I've combined the South-of-the-border flavors of your favorite bar food with the kind of comfort you can only find inside a warm loaf of bread. Each cheesy bite melts in your mouth without the hassle of chewing sharp, jagged chips. You're welcome, bottom-of-the-platter nacho lovers.

Pull-Apart Nacho Bread Recipe

Total Time: 1 hour
Yield: 1 loaf

Ingredients:

  • 8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 green onions, finely chopped
  • 1 sourdough boule (about 1 pound)
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup salsa
  • 1/4 cup guacamole
  • 3 tablespoons sour cream

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350℉.
  2. Whisk garlic powder, salt, and green onions into the melted butter.
  3. Cut the bread into 1-inch squares but do not cut all the way through to the bottom. Use your fingers to pry open each crack and drizzle in a teaspoon of butter and stuff in a pinch of cheese.
  4. Wrap the loaf with foil and bake for 20 minutes, until the cheese has mostly melted. Unwrap and bake for 5 minutes to crisp the crust.
  5. Stuff the cracks with salsa, guacamole, and sour cream. Serve warm.
