Grilled Chorizo Nachos

How to cook nachos on a grill! This version uses Food Should Taste Good™ Sweet Potato Chips

Ingredients

1
bag (5.5 ounce) Food Should Taste Good™ Chips Sweet Potato
8
ounces spicy chorizo
1/2
white onion, diced
1
can (15-ounce) refried beans
1
tablespoon butter
4
ounces queso fresco, crumbled
1
small tomato, diced
Pickled jalapeños
Fresh cilantro
Avocado

Directions

  • 1 Preheat grill to medium heat. If you’re using charcoal, prepare a section of the grill for indirect heat.
  • 2 In a medium skillet, add chorizo and cook over medium heat until cooked through and browned, 6-7 minutes. Add diced onion and cook for another minute or two until onion is softened.
  • 3 In a separate skillet or small pot, heat refried beans with butter over low heat. Keep warm.
  • 4 In a grill pan, spread out a layer of Food Should Taste Good™ Sweet Potato Chips. Top with half the chorizo, dot chips with warm refried beans, and top with crumbled queso fresco, diced tomatoes, pickled jalapenos, and cilantro. Repeat with a second layer of chips and toppings, piling the nachos high.
  • 5 Place grill pan on grill (over indirect heat), cover, and cook for 8-10 minutes until chips are warm. Some on the bottom might even be browned a bit. Topping should be hot and bubbling.
  • 6 Serve with avocado slices.

Step By Step  

Grilled Chorizo Nacho

As prepared by Macheesmo,

An easy way to make a plate of nachos outside!


I love serving up a hot platter of nachos as much as the next guy, but as the weather heats up, it’s less appealing to crank up the oven and heat up the house. Don’t get me wrong, I’ll do it. But, I’d rather sit outside and let my grill do the work.

But nachos are happening, so they might as well happen on the grill!

Of course, you could top these suckers with anything, but I love keeping the toppings simple and flavorful.

For starters, I like big refried bean dollops on my nachos. The refried beans almost act as a sauce as they heat up. Good stuff. I just use canned refried beans and add a little butter to them over low heat. They become creamy and delicious after a few minutes.

For protein, I like to add spicy chorizo. It has loads of spice to it so you don’t need to worry about adding other spices. Cook it down until it’s browned and add in a diced onion as well.

Of course, other toppings are up to you, but I like some diced fresh tomato, crumbled queso fresco (some sort of cheese is a must), pickled jalapeños, and fresh cilantro.

For chips, I used Food Should Taste Good Sweet Potato Tortilla Chips which end up being a little sweet. The sweetness pairs perfectly with the spicy chorizo.

Preheat your grill to medium heat. You don’t want a super-hot grill or the chips will just burn. If you’re using charcoal, more power to ya, but make sure to setup an area for indirect heat.

Then prepare a layer of nachos with chips, spoonfuls of beans, chorizo, cheese, tomatoes, jalapeños, and cilantro.

Keep on piling on the layers. Go big here, people!


Grilled Chorizo Nachos 5

Stick the nachos on a hot grill, covered, for about 8 minutes until the fillings are hot and the chips are toasted. You can also grill an avocado for additional toppings. The warm avocado is perfect on the nachos.

Don’t let the hot weather stop you from making a perfect plate of tasty nachos!

Tips  

Cut the avocado in half and remove the pit. Grill the avocado, cut-side down. Warm avocado is creamy and wonderful on nachos!
