Individual Nachos | Recipe | Chorizo Canape

This recipe comes all the way from Melbourne, Australia from the fabulous Miss T.  If you don't already know Miss T, I suggest you fix that.  She is incredibly talented and has a creative eye.  Her blog, The Pink Leopard, features stunning recipes, amazing photos and hilarious posts.  She's my comedic fix for the day.  And to boot, she's lovely!  Check out The Pink Leopard (click here), but before you do, make sure you're somewhere where you can laugh out loud!

Miss T was kind enough to let me share this recipe with you.  The chorizo is really what makes these special.  As we were making this recipe, my friend sliced one piece for the recipe, one for us to eat.  One for the recipe, one for us to eat.  Yum, yum and yum.

Miss T gave me some wonderful suggestions, including creaming the avocado and adding salsa, which we did.  The end result - oh-so-good!  As a friend popped the third one into her mouth, she proclaimed, "Thanks, Miss T!"  There were zero left over.

My picture is rather sad and pathetic looking.  Click here to see Miss T's original posting and the stunning pictures to go with it.

How fun to have individual nachos! Mine usually looks like a huge mountain of chips and cheese! I follow Miss T's blog and I agree with you - excellent reading! In fact, I believe I found you through her blog! (or vice versa??)

I'm soooo excited about this recipe because I have some chorizo in the fridge! Now I just have to find some cheese (no Monterrey Jack in France) and I'm all set. It looks delicious.
And I love Miss T too! :-)

How tremendously awesome are you - and the nachos look ah-mazing! Birthday celebrations are slowly coming to a halt so I will be back on the blogging horse in no time!
