- 1 package Unger Meats Bratwurst Sausages (flavour of your choice – we used the Tailgater for this recipe)
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 2 teaspoons olive oil (we use Prairie Oils & Vinegars EVOO)
- 1 onion, chopped fine
- 1 bag tortilla chips (we use La Cocina Thick Cut)
- 1 can refried beans
- 1/2 cup green onions
- jalapeño pepper slices
- sliced black olives
- 1 – 8 oz package shredded Mexican cheese blend
- 1/4 tsp chilli powder, or to taste
- 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper, or to taste
- 1/8 tsp onion powder, or to taste
- Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
- Brown the bratwurst sausage in a skillet over medium heat, 10 to 12 mins, stirring often. Unger Meats Brats are precooked so you really need to just heat and brown them. Set aside.
- Melt butter together with olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat; cook the onions in the butter and oil mixture until tender. (if you are using peppers or any other veggie, add them in with the onions in this step) Set aside.
- Spread the tortilla chips onto a baking sheet in an even layer.
- Spread the bratwurst slices, caramelized onions, dollops of refried beans, jalapeño peppers, olives, green onions, and Mexican cheese blend over the chips.
- Sprinkle with chilli powder, cayenne pepper, and onion powder.
- Bake the nachos in the preheated oven until hot and the cheese if melted, 10 to 15 mins. Watch carefully to avoid burning.
