Smoked Sausage Nachos recipe

Smoked Sausage Nachos

  • Author: Brandie Valenzuela


It’s game day – do you serve sausages or nachos? Well, how about both? These Smoked Sausage Nachos combine the best of both worlds.


  • 1 1/2 pounds Farmer John Hot Louisiana Smoked Sausages
  • 1 15 ounce can Black Beans (mostly drained)
  • Cheese Sauce (recipe below)
  • Tortilla Chips
  • Optional Toppings: sour cream (diced avocado, diced tomatoes, salsa, black olives)

Cheese Sauce

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 cups milk
  • 1/2 pound Sharp Cheddar Cheese (shredded)
  • 1/2 pound Swiss Cheese (shredded)


  1. Remove casing from sausage by first making a shallow cut along the length of of the sausage. Peel off casing (this step is optional and you can leave the casing on if you prefer, however this is how I prefer it). Cut each sausage in half length-wise and then cut each half into bite-size pieces. Place sausage pieces into a frying pan and cook over medium-high heat until browned.
  2. Place black beans in a small saucepan and heat on low until hot.

Cheese Sauce

  1. Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Whisk the flour into the melted butter and cook, stirring constantly, for about 2-3 minutes.
  2. Gradually whisk in milk. Cook over medium-low heat, whisking often, making sure to whisk is frequently scraping the bottom of the pan. Cook until mixture has thickened and has just barely began to boil. Lower heat to low and immediately begin whisking in the cheese. Turn off heat and continue to whisk until cheese is completely melted. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

To assemble nachos:

  1. Each guest takes a place and place a desired amount of tortilla chips on their plate. Top chips with toppings, as desired, in any order: cheese sauce, smoked sausage, black beans, and optional toppings.


–Farmer John Smoked Sausages are sold in a 3 lb package. This recipe calls for half of the package, but if you wish to have lots of meat on hand, feel free to cook it all for this recipe. The same is true for the black beans, if you wish to use more, feel free to add another can.

–Cheese sauce can be thinned with a bit of milk, if you desire.
