How to Make Nachos and 3 Easy Dipping Sauces

Nachos are a snack made mainly of corn flour. Their crunchy texture and toasted flavor make them so versatile that they’re ideal for any occasion or to accompany other dishes.

5-Minute Crafts will teach you how to easily prepare them at home along with 3 delicious dipping sauces.


  • 1 ¼ cup of corn flour

  • 2 tbsp of wheat flour

  • ½ cup of hot water

  • 2 cups of deep-frying oil

  • A pinch of salt

  • A pinch of ground pepper

  • 1 ½ tbsp of olive oil

Step 1

  • Mix the corn and wheat flour together with the salt and pepper in a bowl until all the ingredients are well-integrated.

Step 2

  • Add olive oil and knead by hand while slowly pouring in water.

Step 3

  • Once the dough is kneaded enough and is no longer sticky, roll it into a ball and cover it with plastic wrap.

  • Store the container in the fridge for 20 minutes.

Step 4

  • Place parchment paper under and over the dough, then use a rolling pin to flatten it.

  • Afterward, cut the dough into triangles.

Step 5

  • Heat the oil in a skillet and when it’s hot enough to deep fry the nachos, add them in batches. Flip them with a fork so that they turn an even golden brown.

  • Remove the nachos from the skillet and place them on a paper towel-lined plate to drain the excess oil.

Step 6

  • Your nachos are ready to be served as a side dish or with your favorite sauce.
