These oven baked Jalapeno Popper Nachos are perfect for parties, dinners, snacks or Super Bowl appetizers. Crispy (and gluten free!) tortilla chips, smoky bacon, spicy jalapenos and a garlicky cream sauce make them a delicious and fun recipe to serve up anytime!
If you plan to eat these right away, preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
In a saucepan, heat all sauce ingredients over medium-low heat until melted and well combined. Set aside to cool.
Cook bacon however you like (I like to cook it in the microwave). Chop into small pieces.
Create a layer of tortilla chips on the bottom of the pan. Sprinkle the chips with jalapenos, orange pepper, red onion, bacon and shredded cheese. Make another layer on top and continue layering until you run out of toppings or have made as much as you want.
Bake in preheated 400 degree F oven for 5 minutes, or until cheese is melted.*
Serve hot, with creamy garlic sauce on the side (or drizzled on top, but it will soften the chips).
