NACHO MACHO SUPREME
1 large bag of corn tortilla chips, café style
1 pound ground Mexican chorizo
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon cumin powder
1/2 cup frozen sweet corn, thawed
1/2 cup black beans, drained
1/4 cup sliced jalapeño peppers
4 green onions, sliced
2 tomatoes, diced
2 cups sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
1 cup salsa
1 cup sour cream
Preheat oven to 400°. Spray a pizza pan with nonstick oil. Lightly salt. Set aside.
In a shallow skillet, cook chorizo, garlic, and cumin until meat is brown. Drain on paper towels. Assemble nachos by dividing into three or more layers to form a pyramid—chips, chorizo, corn, beans, jalapeños, green onion, tomatoes, cheddar cheese, and mozzarella cheese. Bake for 15-20 minutes. Watch! Serve with salsa, sour cream, and cilantro garnish.
