Ingredients

  • 7

    oz wonton wrappers (You can find these at any grocery store in the produce section. They'll be by the egg roll wrappers and tofu.)

  • canola oil

  • 1/3

    c. ground Italian sausage, cooked

  • 1/3

    c. sliced chicken, cooked

  • 2

    c. mozzarella cheese, divided

  • 1/2

    c. fresh diced tomatoes

  • 1/4

    c. black olives, sliced

  • 1/4

    c. pepperoncini peppers, sliced

  • 1/4

    c. jalapeno peppers, sliced

  • heated alfredo sauce

  • Alfredo Sauce

  • This is NOT the original Carino's Alfredo Sauce recipe. However, it tastes pretty darn close to it! It comes from Texas Housewife. This link includes other Carino's copycat recipes!

  • 1

    quart heavy cream

  • 1

    c. parmesan cheese

  • 1

    Tbsp black pepper

  • 1/4

    c. whole milk

  • Saute heavy cream, milk, and pepper to a consistent boil. Remove the cream mixture from the heat and fold in the parmesan cheese. Set aside to use on nachos or store in the fridge for later use.

Directions

Build for Nachos Begin by preparing the wontons. Unwrap them and peel them apart. Then cut them into triangles, 3 inches long and 2 inches tall. Size will vary depending on what you buy. Heat the oil up to 350 degrees in a fryer or a deep pan. Drop the cut wrappers into the hot oil for about 60 seconds until the wrappers float and become crispy. Make sure the wrappers aren't sticking together when they go into the oil. Once the wrappers are fried, they become the chips. Remove from the oil and place on a paper towel to dry. Place pasta chips in a mound on a baking sheet tray. Top the chips with jalapenos, pepperoncinis, tomatoes, olives, chicken, and sausage. Top with mozzarella cheese. (Top with desired amount of cheese. You don't have to use the full 2 cups.) Bake in the oven at 350 degrees until the cheese has turned a light golden brown. Be careful not to burn the chips! Remove from the oven and top with hot alfredo sauce. Enjoy!!
