Ingredients

  • 1 package (14 ounces) fully cooked smoked bratwurst links, sliced
  • 2-1/4 cups frozen pepper and onion stir-fry blend
  • 3 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2-1/2 teaspoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 3/4 cup beer or beef broth
  • 12 cups tortilla chips

Directions

  1. In a large skillet, saute bratwurst for 1 minute. Add stir-fry blend; cook 3-5 minutes longer or until vegetables are tender. Set aside and keep warm.
  2. In a large bowl, combine cheese and flour. In a large saucepan, saute onion in oil until tender. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Stir in beer; heat over medium heat until bubbles form around sides of pan.
  3. Reduce heat to medium-low; add a handful of cheese mixture. Stir constantly, using a figure-8 motion, until almost completely melted. Continue adding cheese, 1 handful at a time, allowing cheese to almost completely melt between additions.
  4. Arrange tortilla chips on a large serving platter. Spoon cheese mixture over chips. Top with bratwurst mixture. Serve immediately.
