These are not ya mama’s nachos, these are The Sister’s Cajun nachos. Can we just say these Nachos are out of sight! We enjoyed every bite! This appetizer would be a great starter for any gathering.
This recipe is featured in Cooking with Paula Deen magazine.
What you are going to need-
24 Wonton wrappers
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 egg white, frothed
1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning
1 lb jalapeno cheese smoked sausage (removed from casing)
1 16-ounce container mild Mexican white cheese dip
½ cup cherry tomatoes, sliced
¼ cup green onions, sliced
1 small can sliced black olives, drained
1 small can green chilies
First you are going to need to preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Take the wontons out of the wrapper and cut each wonton in half and brush them lightly with some olive oil. Next you are going to lay each wonton on a cookie sheet. Be sure to fill the entire cookie sheet, but don’t even think about layering them. If you do you will have a big fat mess on your hands. You are going to need to make an egg wash to brush these babies down so they can get a little suntan. Then you are going to need to sprinkle just a little bit of Cajun seasoning on each one. Go ahead and put them in the oven for about 5 minutes or until they have achieved that golden brown suntan look. While those wontons are sun bathing you need to take the sausage out of the casing, which is the wrapper that holds all the goodness of the sausage together. Just simply take a knife and cut the sausage down the middle and peel it away. Dig all the sausage out and throw the meat in a large skillet over medium high heat and cook it until it is completely done. Take the back of your spoon and mash the sausage so it will cook all the way. This process will take about 10 minutes. Then sadly you will need to drain the fat. We know how some of you love some fat, but this process must be done so you don’t have soggy chips. Take out one of your pretty platters that your mama gave you and you never used and layer those Cajun Chips on it. Next sprinkle the sausage over the chips and then pour on the cheese. You don’t have to use the entire container. Use as much or as little as you would like. Then you will top off this masterpiece with some beautiful vegetables. You must have your veggies. Add the tomatoes, onions, olives and green chilies. Wow, that looks so appetizing. Go on and take a bite, you know you want to flop your big ole lip over one of these! It’s OK, we all do it!
