Loaded Sheet Pan Nachos

This delicious loaded sheet pan nachos recipe is great for family game night or as a centerpiece appetizer at a party. Beautifully browned ground beef creates an incredible nacho recipe that will be sure to impress. White onion is a more traditional choice to add flavor to the browned ground beef. However, in this case, the rest of the red onion used to prepare the Pico de Gallo is used instead. This lends a very subtle, yet distinct, sweet note to the garlic and savory taco seasoning.
