One of my favorite things to get at a restaurant is nachos. Great cheesy nachos with a big strawberry margarita is my idea of a good time. It’s perfect if you’re out with a couple girlfriends, or your significant other. It’s a great food to share while enjoying great conversation. However, I’m not always in the mood to go out to a restaurant so sometimes I make them at home. It couldn’t be easier.. Just don’t forget the margaritas or the mojitos. 🙂

Now I chose to use a pizza tray for this but you can use any oven safe dish you want. So next we need to add a layer of nachos then a layer of the beef and chorizo sausage. Top with cheese and jalapenos. I decided to use a southwest shredded cheese for this which is a blend of cheddar, mozzarella and monterey jack cheese seasoned with chipotle and chili peppers. This to me is the perfect cheese for nachos. Add another layer of nachos, followed by another layer of beef and chorizo sausage and topped with cheese and jalapenos.

Now the beauty of nachos is that you can top them with whatever you want, you can add tomatoes, olives, onions, peppers, etc. Whatever you’re in the mood for. Bake these nachos in a preheated oven at 500 F degrees for about 5 to 10 minutes or until the cheese has melted nicely.

They are delicious. Sometimes it’s good to be bad and enjoy a nice plate of nachos. 🙂

Garlic is used to enhance the taste of dishes with vegetables, meat or seafood.
It is also used to get a strong, nutty taste in the preparation of bread, toast and bruschettas (a piece of baked bread coated with mashed garlic and toppings, such as: olive oil, pepper, tomato, cheese, meat, etc.).Garlic is an excellent source of vitamins and minerals that are crucial for good health. Cloves are one of the richest sources of: potassium, iron, calcium, magnesium, manganese, zinc and selenium. Selenium is a mineral that maintains heart health and is an important cofactor for antioxidant enzymes in the body.
