Notch It Up Nachos

Those of you who have been following for a while might remember our family “Movie Night” – watching movies together on the sofa with all the “junk” food you could get in the theater. (And for a heck of a lot cheaper!). We use to do “Movie Night” more often, when Kiddo was still a kid. We still have family “Movie Night” every now and again – renting two or three movies for the night and treating ourselves to Movie Night Hot Dog Delight, plenty of hot buttery popcorn, “Movie” candy and let’s not forget the nachos.

Recently we had one of those stay at home night’s out. Instead of making the regular cheese nachos with plenty of Jalapeno peppers, we decided to kick it up a notch by adding chorizo to the cheese and heaping on the sour cream. Yum!

And just for the record, on the screen was the latest Mad Max installment (guys choice) and Tomorrow Land. I love spending time snuggling up together on our big sofa, munching on “theater” food and just enjoying the evening together.

Notch It Up Nachos
1 lb Ground Chorizo Meat (the good stuff)
2 Containers Frito Cheese Dip (Hot)
1 Jar Nacho Sliced Jalapenos
Sour Cream
Tortilla Chips

In a cast iron skillet over medium heat, brown Chorizo. Crumble meat as it cooks just as you would ground beef. Drain off any excess grease.

Open cheese dip, pour over chorizo and stir to blend. Continue to heat over medium-low until cheese is hot and bubbling.

Spread chips evenly on a large serving platter or individual plates. Ladle cheese mixture over chips, top with sour cream and nacho style Jalapeno peppers.
