Cheesy Bacon Baked Tortilla Chips
Yields: Enough as an appetizer for about 10 people
Slighty adapted from here.
2 jalapenos, minced (you can discard the seeds if you prefer)
1 small onion, minced
1 garlic clove, minced
1 package bacon, chopped into small pieces
2 cups cheddar cheese
1 jar salsa (choose your favorite)
1 large bag of tortilla chips
Preheat oven to 400 F. Place tortilla chips on a large baking sheet in a single layer, set aside. In a large pan brown the bacon until fully cooked and crisp. Remove from the pan and drain on a paper towel, allow to cool. Remove all of the bacon grease from the pan except 1 tablespoon. Add onions, jalapenos and garlic. Cook for 3 - 5 minutes until translucent and cooked through. Add to bacon and allow to cool. Once cool, add the cheddar to the mixture and mix well. Spoon a teaspoonful of salsa on each tortilla chip and top with the cheese mixture. Place in oven for 5 - 8 minutes or until the cheese turns a nice golden brown. Serve straight away and enjoy!
