When I was selecting my 10 favorite nacho recipes, I suddenly had an intense craving for nachos. So much so that I decided to make some! Not just any recipe though — one that I had seen in Everyday Food for Emeril's amazing-looking spicy sausage nachos. They're loaded with jalapeños, black beans, pepper Jack cheese, and hot sausage.
The only problem with these nachos is that it's hard to stop eating them. I devoured my entire plate and then went back for seconds. If you have the time, I highly recommend serving them with homemade salsa. I used the Pioneer Woman's chunky variation and it took these nachos to a whole new level. To serve them at your Super Bowl bash, get the recipe and read more.
