TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:12 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 package (14 ounces) Johnsonville® Original Bratwurst, sliced
  • 2-1/4 cups frozen pepper and onion stir-fry blend
  • 3 cups (12 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2-1/2 teaspoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 3/4 cup beer or beef broth
  • 12 cups tortilla chips

Directions

  • 1. In a large skillet, saute bratwurst for 1 minute. Add stir-fry blend; cook 3-5 minutes longer or until vegetables are tender. Set aside and keep warm.
  • 2. In a large bowl, combine cheese and flour. In a large saucepan, saute onion in oil until tender. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Stir in beer; heat over medium heat until bubbles form around sides of pan.
