Best pepper for Nachos

We’d be amiss if we did not ask our friends what the best pepper is for making Super Bowl Nachos…feel free to chime in!

For myself I have to go w/ dried chipotle on top of freshly grated cheddar cheese w/ a few fresh poblano shaving thrown in for color and pizzaz.

Chorizo Stuffed “Darn Hot” Anaheim Chiles

Prep Time = about 10 minutes, Cook Time = about 30 minutes

– 6-8 large Anaheim chilies
– 6 ounces chorizo sausage
– 1 egg, lightly beaten
– 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
– 1 cup bread crumbs
– 1/2 small onion, chopped
– 1 clove garlic, chopped
– 1 cup mushrooms, finely chopped
– 1/3 cup chihuahua cheese, shredded
– 1/4 teaspoon Darn Hot Peppers Herb Shaker in place of salt


Place sausage in a skillet and add 1/2 teaspoon of darn hot herb shaker. Cook on low heat for about 10 minutes, pour off excess grease. Add mushrooms and cilantro into skillet, cook for an additional 5-6 minutes. Pull from heat and stir in egg, cheese, and bread crumbs. Place chilies on grill and cook about 3 minutes each side. Remove from grill, take off charred skin, cut lengthwise to remove seeds. Fill chilies with chorizo stuffing and place back on the grill for an additional 6 minutes.

I like to eat w/ fresh flour tortillas and a tamarindo Jarritos.
