  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small white onion (peeled, finely diced)
  • 1 red bell pepper (seeded, finely diced)
  • 2-3 jalapenos (finely diced)
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 pound yellow American cheese (shredded)
  • 8 ounces pepper Jack cheese (shredded)
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper (to taste)
  • 3 ripe avocados (peeled, pitted)
  • 1 lime (juiced)
  • 1/4 cup red onion (peeled, minced)
  • 1 serrano chili (seeded, minced)
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro leaves (finely chopped)
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper (to taste)
  • 1 bag tortilla chips
  • 1 recipe spicy queso dip
  • 1 recipe guacamole
  • 1 1/2 cups chili or leftover chili
  • 3/4 cup store-bought salsa
  • 1/2 cup sour cream (for garnish)
  • 1 jalapeno (thinly sliced)
  • 1/2 bunch cilantro leaves (for garnish)
  • For the Queso: Heat the olive oil in a medium pot over medium heat. Add the onion, bell pepper, jalapeno, and a generous pinch of salt, cooking until very soft, about 5 minutes. Add the cream and bring to a simmer. Add the cheese, stirring continuously, until melted, and season to taste.
  • For the Guacamole: In a large bowl, add the avocado, lime juice, red onion, serrano chile, and cilantro, and mash with a fork to combine. The consistency should be relatively smooth with small lumps of avocado. Season with salt and pepper.
  • For the Nachos: On a large platter, pile the chips, drizzle with queso and top with guacamole, chili, salsa, sour cream, jalapeno, and cilantro. Enjoy!
  • Tip: For a mild queso, remove the seeds of the jalapenos before mincing.
