NOTHING BUT NACHOS WEEK: The grand finale… sausagefest nachos!

So, I wanted my last dish of this week to be something epic, loading with toppings and bursting with flavour… So I came up with this sausagefest:

What you’ve got here is some chorizo sausage, fried up with peppers, onions and pickled jalapenos. Great flavour from the sausage, while the peppers and onions add a nice crispness, and the jalapenos give it an extra kick. Served with a side of salsa con queso. You could put all these ingredients between a bun, but I think they’re much better on top of nacho chips!

NOTHING BUT NACHOS WEEK: Poutine + Nachos = food coma

Having already created Quebecixcan cuisine with these smoked meat nachos, I figured I’d take it up a notch. You’ve got nachos, you’ve got poutine, two of the greatest foods of all time, coming together on the same plate:

Man, this was the most meal prep I’ve done all week. I had to heat the fries in the oven, and make the gravy on the stove. I got the cheese curds from the Loblaws at Maple Leaf Gardens, which seems to be the only place you can buy em ’round here. And I know what you’re thinking–why not put cheese on top of the chips? Sorry bro, but shredded cheese does not belong anywhere near poutine. That’s just a fact of life.

And hey, turns out you can eat this with your hands, you just gotta shovel some fries and curds onto a chip. This is pretty much the perfect bite, right here:
