Classic nachos with an Italian twist.



  • 2 plum tomatoes, centers, stems and seeds removed, chopped
  • 1/2 green bell pepper, diced
  • 1/4 white onion, diced
  • 1/4 cup Italian parsley, chopped
  • 2 large garlic cloves, minced
  • 4 peppadews, minced (you can find these in the olive bar section of your grocer)
  • 1 teaspoon red wine vinegar
  • 2 Italian sausage links, cooked and crumbled
  • 1-2 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • tortilla chips


  1. Combine tomatoes through red wine vinegar in a medium bowl, toss lightly to coat.  Set aside.
  2. On a large, foil-lined, rimmed baking sheet, spread tortilla chips in a single layer.
  3. Sprinkle crumbled Italian sausage mixture over tortilla chips.  Evenly spoon tomato mixture over sausage. Finish with a healthy top layer of mozzarella cheese.
  4. Place nachos under broiler on high.  Watch very closely to prevent them from burning.  Remove when cheese melts and gets bubbly.  Enjoy your Italian Nachos!
