Sheet Pan Kimchi Nachos

Serves 6

Our Asian-inspired nachos are wildly flavorful with a tangy kick from kimchi. Kimchi is a spicy Korean condiment that is often fermented and aged, delivering gut-healthy probiotics. Assemble the nachos on a baking sheet, and then deliver them straight to the table for easy serving and fun presentation. You can use shredded rotisserie chicken or shrimp instead of ground pork. In place of melted cheese, we use a chili-spiked yogurt sauce that helps bind all of the toppings to the chips. The topping potential is endless: Try adding diced avocado, chopped bell peppers, or jalapenos for extra heat.

How to Make It

  1. Spread tortilla chips evenly on a half sheet pan. Set aside.
  2. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium. Add pork and shallot; cook 3 to 4 minutes, breaking pork into pieces with a wooden spoon. Add garlic, ginger, and fish sauce; cook 2 to 3 minutes, until pork is browned and garlic is aromatic. Use a slotted spoon to remove pork from pan and sprinkle evenly over chips. Spread kimchi evenly over pork.
