Not Your Regular Nachos: Corn Pudding Nacho Bites

Last Friday night I hosted an impromptu dinner party for some close friends. It was an informal introduction of my best friend's new boyfriend, so I went all out with appetizers and a special cocktail. Ever since I made nacho bites, I've wanted to experiment more with Tostitos Scoops, and I decided this was the perfect opportunity to do so.I filled each chip with a corn, cheese, and egg mixture that cooked up like a corn pudding. The final bite was salty, cheesy, and purely delicious. This is an incredibly easy recipe that can be modified to suit your dietary needs. To see how I made this version,

Ingredients

4 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
1/2 cup shredded pepper jack cheese
1 large egg
1/4 cup frozen corn kernels
24 scoop-shaped tortilla chips (recommended: Tostitos Scoops)
3 tablespoons finely chopped green onions
1/4 cup finely chopped Spanish chorizo
1 heaping tablespoon jalapeño

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. In a large bowl, mix the cream cheese, pepper jack cheese, egg, corn, green onions, chorizo, and jalapeño.
  2. Arrange the chips on a large rimmed baking sheet and place 1 teaspoon corn mixture in each. Bake until the filling sets, about 20 minutes.
  3. Serve warm.

Makes 2 dozen.


My cream cheese could have been softer.

I always grate extra cheese to snack on while cooking.

what about making these with regular corn tortillas?--maybe layering the corn tortillas in a muffin pan? any other suggestions? I am trying to eat healthier and reducing the amount of junk food I eat, but this recipe appeals to me!

This is a great idea for game day. Scoops are an appetizer waiting to happen.

Made them this afternoon - very very tasty! I did eliminate the chorizo, but still very good!

This sounds very yummy. I would probably vary the recipe to use less cream cheese.

I made these last night. They were really really really good! Dont put too much of the filling into the nacho tho or else it will come out of the oven a little soggy.

something about the cream cheese seems excessive to me. otherwise, it looks so tempting I'm about to eat my computer screen.

teece81: How can you hate cream cheese? What about cream cheese frosting?! Mascarpone or goat cheese would be great substitutes for cream cheese.
