  • Fritos Scoops chips grab 2 bags in case it's hard to find the perfectly-shaped chips
  • Cooked Mexican chorizo finely crumbled (Note: If you cannot crumble the sausage well enough, toss the slightly-cooled cooked chorizo into a food processor and pulse a few times)
  • Shredded cheese extra sharp cheddar or pepperjack work great!
  • 1 cup Ranch salad dressing
  • 2 tablespoons or more, to taste chopped chipotle peppers along with some of the adobo sauce
  • Green onions sliced thin, for garnish


  • Fire up your Big Easy.
  • Open the bag of chips and place in a large bowl. Go through them and grab the biggest, best scooping chips you can find.
  • Combine the crumbled chorizo and cheese. Press lightly into the chips and transfer to the cooking rack.
  • Lower rack into the Big Easy and cook until the cheese is melted on all levels, about 5 minutes.
  • Remove the rack and let cool slightly.
  • While the chips are cooling whisk together the dressing and chipotle with adobo.
  • Serve chips drizzled with the sauce and garnished with green onions.
