Mrs. T's Pierogies Chorizo Nachos

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Millennial Central for Mrs. T’s Pierogies. I received a product sample to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank you for participating.

Happy Friday! If you're planning a get-together with friends this weekend, I have a great recipe idea for you using Mrs. T's Pierogies. My first post was all about reviewing them for the first time and included a very simple recipe to serve as a side dish. Today's recipe is more of an appetizer, though it can be eaten as an actual meal, too. It's nachos, who wouldn't want to eat nachos as a meal?

Anyway, this is perfect for get-together with friends, like for a potluck-style sporting event (March Madness, anyone?) or movie night. It features potato and cheddar pierogies, Mexican blend cheese and queso fresco, chorizo, and pickled peppers.

Gather:

1 box Mrs. T's Pierogies Potato and Cheddar
2 chorizo sausage links
1 cup Mexican-blend shredded cheese (absolutely NOT taco-seasoned cheese)
1/4 cup crumbled queso fresco
pickled pepper slices
2 green onions, sliced thinly on the bias
chopped fresh cilantro, to taste

Line a small baking sheet with foil, because who wants to bother with a mess during a gathering with friends? Bake the pierogies according to package directions.

While the pierogies bake, heat a small skillet over medium heat. Remove casings of chorizo and crumble into heated skillet. Cook thoroughly, about 5 minutes. Drain from fat and set aside.

Gather cheeses, cilantro, and green onion. Not pictures, pickled pepper slices.

After the pierogies finish baking, sprinkle with 3/4 cup shredded cheese. Add chorizo, then remaining shredded cheese. Top with queso fresco and green onions. Pop back in the oven for 5-7 minutes, just until cheese is melted and bubbly.

Remove from oven and top with pickled pepper and cilantro.

Serves 4 as an appetizer or 2 as a meal.

The potato and cheddar pierogies worked out great for this recipe. Obviously, these are not chips, so you'll have to use a fork to eat these "nachos". But it tasted great and is an easy recipe to put together. Try it out for your next get-together with friends!

  2. Pierogies are one of my favorite things in the whole wide world! I really like this is such a cool idea! One of my good friends is polish and he serves them with bacon fat :-)

  3. Mmm these little pierogies look amazing! I definitely want some. I've bough this brand for a few years now and really like them. They do need a little something-something though.
