It’s National Nachos Day and I can’t wait to dig in on one of these dishes to celebrate! With so many nacho offerings available around Walt Disney World Resort, I’ve come up with a list of some of my favorites from all four parks and Disney Springs.
Starting at the Planet Hollywood Observatory in Disney Springs, you’ll be excited to find a hefty Nachos Grande on the appetizer menu. A great dish to share with friends, these corn tortilla chips come piled high with chipotle chicken, black bean sauce, cruda salsa verde pico de gallo, queso fresco, sour cream and a blend of cheddar and Monterey Jack cheeses.
But that’s not all – Disney Springs has a couple more delicious Nacho offerings available. The Smokehouse, located in Disney Springs West Side, has their incredible Smokehouse Nachos: crispy fried tri-color corn tortilla chips topped with house-made cheese sauce, avocado lime crema, pickled jalapeños, fresh-made pic de gallo and cilantro. You can also order these nachos with pulled pork or smoked beef brisket. And over at T-REX™ in the Disney Springs Marketplace, you’ll find the Colloso Beef Nachos for Two, with Monterey Jack, cheddar cheese, black beans, pico de gallo, green onions and sour cream. These nachos will leave you roaring for more!
Over at Disney’s BoardWalk, ESPN Club is bringing the game with their Tuna Nachos. One of my personal favorites, this absolutely delicious appetizer consists of house-made wonton chips, togarashi-dusted tuna, soy-sesame sauce and wasabi aioli. And these aren’t the only gourmet nachos on the menu – you can also find Pub Nachos with house-fried corn tortilla chips, house-made chili, shredded cheddar, cheese sauce, sour cream, pico de gallo and jalapeños, with the option to add shrimp.
Next on my list is the Loaded Greek Nachos available at the Greece Marketplace. A special dish crafted for the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival, these nachos consist of pita chips, meatless sausage crumbles and vegan tzatziki. And not only is this dish vegan, it’s kid-friendly as well! Be sure to stop by Epcot before Nov. 13, as these nachos are only available through the end of the festival.
For those looking for some smaller portions of nachos, if you’re in Magic Kingdom Park, you can always stop by Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe for some classic beef nachos – tortilla chips topped with queso, seasoned ground beef, lettuce and tomato. For a vegetarian option, you can also ask to substitute black beans in place of the seasoned ground beef! Or if you’re at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Dockside Diner near Echo Lake serves up some tasty chili cheese nachos with guacamole, pico de gallo and sour cream. For the younger guests, a Kid’s Nachos is also available that comes topped with chili and cheese and includes carrot sticks, apple slices and your choice of a small lowfat milk or a small Dasani® Water. In addition, both of these nachos are completely vegetarian.
Finally, the Yak and Yeti™ Restaurant at Disney’s Animal Kingdom has a unique sharable nachos dish that’s perfect for two! The Ahi Tuna Nachos come with sushi grade Ahi, Asian slaw, crispy fried wontons, wasabi aioli and sweet soy glaze.
No matter where you are at Walt Disney World Resort, there’s plenty of options for you to chow down on some delicious nachos for National Nachos Day!
