LOaded ChickeN Chorizo NaChos


I’ve never tasted nachos I did not like. I accept them in all forms. Whether that’s only with cheese, minus the cheese or with ALL the toppings. Let’s be real though, you can’t go wrong when you pile on delicious toppings! Even better? Nachos are forgiving. You can add as little or as much of each ingredient and get creative when choosing your nachos masterpiece.

Break out the salty tortilla chips, cheese, creamy avocado, spicy chicken chorizo, all the classic toppings and the endless “nacho business” jokes. It’s time to eat some nachos!

Nacho Base Ingredients

4-5 large handfuls tortilla chips

1/2 lb. ground chicken chorizo

1 cup shredded Mexican cheese


2 tablespoons sour cream

1/2 Avocado, sliced

3 tablespoons salsa

1 fresh jalapeño, thinly sliced

1 small tomato, chopped

1/2 onion, chopped

2 tablespoons cilantro

Begin by preheating the oven to 375 degrees.

Sauté the chicken chorizo for 6-8 minutes, or until cooked through. Place half of the tortilla chips on a baking sheet or small cast iron skillet. Top the tortilla chips with half of the chicken chorizo and half of the cheese. Repeat with the remaining tortilla chips, chicken chorizo and cheese. Place the nachos in the oven and cook for five to six minutes. Turn on the broiler and broil for 30 seconds. Remove from the oven.

Top the nachos with the salsa, avocado, onion, tomato, jalapeño, sour cream and cilantro. Enjoy!
