Simple Chorizo Nachos are just what your weekend needs. Spiced pinto beans, flavorful chorizo, melted cheese and spicy jalapenos all atop crispy tortilla chips.
- 1 lb. Mexican chorizo, removed from casing
- 1 (15 oz.) can pinto beans
- 1/2 tsp. chili powder
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 1 1/2 cups grated pepper jack cheese
- 1 1/2 cups grated sharp cheddar
- Tortilla chips
- Sliced jalapenos
- Sour cream
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. In a skillet over medium heat, cook the chorizo. Meanwhile, in a small sauce pan over medium low heat combine the pinto beans, chili powder and salt. Warm through.
Lay out a single layer of tortilla chips. Top with half the crumbled chorizo, half the pinto beans and half of the cheeses. Add another layer of chips and repeat layers. Bake for 5 to 8 minutes, until cheese is bubbly and nachos are heated through. Top with sliced jalapenos and sour cream as desired.
