How do you like that recipe title?!

We’ve been having fun with red, white, and blue food since the Fourth of July and, with the Olympics just over a week away, I’ve just been keeping the patriotic food coming!

I took a Mexican favorite, put on Italian toppings, and made the colors support our good old USA! The result was these fun Patriotic Italian Nachos!

Here is what you need:

Ingredients: Tri-color or blue corn tortilla chips, pepperoni, and shredded mozzarella

These nachos could be made for one person on a plate in the microwave or for a group on a baking stone in the oven! Since I don’t eat cheese and the boys aren’t too adventurous, these were just for The Hubby!

On the plate, you will put chips first…

Then cheese…

Pepperoni next…

And more cheese!

Look at that pretty red, white, and blue!

You could stop right there, but The Hubby likes a few more toppings, so I added black olives…

and some turkey Italian sausage and more cheese…

Heat them in the microwave for one minute on high or until the cheese has melted.

If using the oven, heat at 375 degrees for 8-10 minutes or until the cheese has melted.

And there you have it! Serve with warm marinara sauce for dipping!

Whip up a plate or two of these while you watch the Opening Ceremonies this Friday or while you take in some swimming or track or soccer and cheer on Team USA!
