Sausage and Pepperoni Nacho Supreme

Tortilla chips with sage pork sausage, pepperoni, jalapeno, shallot, black olives, and nacho cheese sauce.

This recipe for sausage and pepperoni nacho supreme is a hearty, savory twist on classic nachos, featuring a rich blend of Jimmy Dean sage pork sausage and sliced pepperoni as its base. This meaty mixture is cooked with finely diced jalapeño and shallot, adding a burst of flavor and a hint of heat. The nachos are then generously smothered in a homemade, creamy nacho cheese sauce made from a decadent mix of American cheese, cream cheese, butter, heavy cream, whole milk, and a dash of hot sauce for an extra kick. This indulgent sauce is poured over a bed of crunchy tortilla chips, layered with the savory meat topping, and finally garnished with fresh chopped green onions and sliced black olives for a contrasting freshness and a touch of elegance.

  • Tortilla chips
  • 1/2 pound Jimmy Dean sage pork sausage
  • 1/2 cup pepperoni, sliced in half
  • 1 finely diced jalapeno

  • 1/4 cup fresh chopped green onions
  • 2.25 ounce can of sliced black olives

Nacho Cheese Sauce

  • 8 slices of American cheese
  • 2 ounces of cream cheese
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup whole milk
  • 2 teaspoons hot sauce


Prepare the Meat Topping: In a large skillet over medium heat, add the sage pork sausage, sliced pepperoni, diced jalapeño, and diced shallot. Cook the meat mixture, stirring occasionally, for about 10 minutes, or until the sausage is thoroughly cooked and the ingredients are well combined. Remove from heat and set aside.

Make the Nacho Cheese Sauce: In a medium saucepan, combine the American cheese, cream cheese, butter, whole milk, heavy cream, and hot sauce. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the cheeses have melted and the sauce is smooth and creamy. If the sauce is too thick, adjust by adding a little more milk or cream to reach your desired consistency. Remove from heat.

Assemble the Nachos: Lay out tortilla chips on a serving platter or large dish. Evenly spread the meat mixture over the chips. Generously pour the nacho cheese sauce over the meat and chips. Garnish with the chopped green onions and the drained black olives.

Serve and Enjoy: Serve the nachos immediately while warm. Enjoy them as a hearty snack or a party appetizer!
