Asian Skillet Nachos with Wasabi Crema

This post may include affiliate links. Read our disclaimer policy here.

Asian skillet nachos are full of flavor and will become a staple in your house for nacho night. Full of unique flavor and a creamy wasabi topping, they are perfect for dinner time or for a Super Bowl party! They also are made in one – pot making clean up a breeze!

What Do Asian Nachos Taste Like?

These nachos have very unique flavor! Chinese five spice powder adds a robust, sweet yet spicy taste to the mushroom and pepper mix. Soy sauce gives them an earthy, umami flavor and the wasabi crema adds a subtle yet spice creamy kick!

I stuck to the recipe using green pepper, onion and mushrooms but I think sugar snap peas or broccoli would have been a nice addition. Be sure to not skip the cabbage, green onion and carrot topping! They not only add a nice color but give the nachos additional pizzaz. We also added steamed edamame, cilantro and pickled onion! Additional protein and flavors really made these nachos soar. I will be making these skillet nachos again and again.

Go into these nachos with an open mindset! They are not your traditional guac, salsa and bean nachos. My husband really appreciated that I told him that before he dove into them and HE LOVED THIS RECIPE. I promise you will love mixing up your nacho night with this Asian skillet nacho version! If you are prone to stomach troubles from traditional salsa nachos, these are the perfect remedy for a non acidic, no tomato nacho recipe.

What to Do with Leftover Skillet Nachos

While, I do not think you will have leftovers, the vegetable mixture would also be great served with cooked jasmine rice. You could also make these nachos into an asian bowl and crumble some tortillas on the top!

This asian nacho recipe would pair well with our Jasmine Rice Bowl or Ginger Turmeric Chickpeas.

The recipe calls for both wasabi paste and dairy free yogurt. If you cannot find either in your local grocery our ginger avocado dressing would also be a great way to top these nachos!
