Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Line a jelly roll pan or large cake pan with parchment paper.

  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir pork chorizo in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, about 7 minutes. Transfer to a bowl; place in the refrigerator.

  • Stack 5 tortillas. Slice off rounded edges to create large triangles. Repeat with remaining tortillas.

  • Place 3 to 5 tortilla triangles in a large bowl. Drizzle some olive oil on top; rub over the triangles with your fingers. Transfer to the prepared baking sheets. Repeat with remaining triangles and olive oil, arranging 6 triangles per baking sheet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until toasted, 7 to 8 minutes. Remove from oven; flip with tongs. Continue baking until second side is golden brown, 7 to 8 minutes more. Transfer to a wire rack to cool. Repeat with remaining triangles.

  • Layer baked triangles, chorizo, Cheddar cheese, and jalapeno slices in the prepared jelly roll pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until Cheddar cheese is melted, 20 to 25 minutes. Top with guacamole, sour cream, cotija cheese, cilantro, and green onions.

I did not have the cotija cheese and my small local grocery store didn't carry it but it was still delicious. I do think you need to plan on my chorizo but that is the only change I would make next time. Read More
