We’re just two days away from the big game! Whether you’re a Panthers or Broncos fan, we can all agree that nachos make the ultimate game day snack. And what makes it even better? Venison.
Spicy Venison Nachos
Ingredients 2 pounds of ground venison 1 pound good Andouille or Chorizo sausage, sliced or crumbled 1 or 2 Garlic cloves, finely diced One onion, finely diced 2 tablespoons, or to taste, of a southwestern-style seasoning. Salt to taste 1 can Rotel brand chopped tomatoes with green chilies Tortilla chips, taco shells or flour tortillas Toppings Refried beans Sliced jalapenos Roasted bell peppers Chipotle peppers in adobo sauce Chopped onions Shredded cheese Nacho cheese Shredded lettuce Chopped tomatoes Sour cream Salsa Black beans Corn salsa Guacamole Just about anything else you can dream up!
Directions Heat a tablespoon of vegetable oil or bacon grease in a large nonstick skillet. Add the diced onion and garlic, sauté until the onion is soft, then add ground meat. Season the meat with salt and southwestern or taco seasoning. Cook until meat is browned through. Add sausage slices and Rotel. Reduce heat and simmer while you get everything else together.
If you prefer fajita style nachos, season venison steaks well with salt and southwestern seasoning. Grill over a hot charcoal fire or gas grill on high for three to four minutes per side. Remove steaks from heat, cover loosely with foil and let them rest for ten to fifteen minutes. Slice the steaks, across the grain, into thin strips. Set all of your fixins out on the counter or table and let your dinner guests build their own masterpiece.
