    Italian Nachos are a new twist on an old favorite.  Crunchy, spicy, and loaded with toppings, these are about as addictive as they come.

    We all have a favorite good nacho recipe up our sleeves. Tortilla chips, salsa, refried beans, sour cream, cheese, guacamole, onions, and jalapeños. What’s not to love?

    I decided to spice things up a little bit. Out with the old and in with the new! Why not keep the tortilla chips as little vehicles for flavor but swap out the flavor profiles on top?

    Instead of pickled or raw jalapenos, I use Peppadew Peppers. These are the star of my Italian Nachos. They look like a cross between a cherry tomato & bell pepper and pack a wallop of flavor.

    When these peppers are preserved, the seeds are removed (that is where much of the heat comes from) and are they are pickled in a sugar brine to help mellow them out. Sweet and spicy!

    Look for these in “olive bar” section of your grocer or in the pickle aisle. The rest of the ingredients are easy to come by and can be omitted for modified for your guests.

    Pro nacho tip: Spread your tortilla chips on a sheet tray in a single layer. The single layer ensures every chip gets a little bit of love. No chip should go naked!

    These Italian Nachos were so delicious, that I want to create more variations. What extraordinary or bizarre ingredients do you like on your nachos?? Tell me in the comments below!
