Super Grilled Nachos

Nothing says big game more than a big tray of nachos. We’re talking three layers of cheesy goodness, with just a little kick from chorizo sausage and jalapenos. Score!

 

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 16-oz bag of tortilla chips
  • 3 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 3 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • ½ pound chorizo sausage
  • 1 red pepper, diced 
  • 1 can refried beans
  • 2 jalapenos
  • 2 tbsp. fresh chopped cilantro
  • 2 tsp. olive oil
  • Sour cream, salsa and guacamole (optional)

 

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat the grill to medium.
  2. In a pan over medium heat, cook the chorizo and red pepper in the olive oil until the chorizo is browned, about 7-8 minutes. Set aside on a paper-towel lined surface.
  3. Then assemble the nachos. On a grill tray, place a layer of tortilla chips on the bottom, then add about one third of the cheese, refried beans, chorizo-pepper mixture and jalapenos. Repeat with two more layers.  
  4. Grill with the lid closed for about 5-7 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
  5. Remove, sprinkle with cilantro and serve with sour cream, salsa and guacamole.
