Sam Adams Octoberfest Brat Nachos

INGREDIENTS

1 package (14 ounces) fully cooked smoked bratwurst links, sliced

2-1/4 cups frozen pepper and onion stir-fry blend

3 cups 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 Samuel Adams Octoberfest

12 cups tortilla chips

DIRECTIONS

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.

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 Sam Adams Octoberfest; heat over medium heat until bubbles form around sides of pan.

Reduce heat to medium-low; add a handful of cheese mixture. Stir constantly, using a figure-eight motion, until almost completely melted. Continue adding cheese, one handful at a time, allowing cheese to almost completely melt between additions.

Arrange tortilla chips on a large serving platter. Spoon cheese mixture over chips. Top with bratwurst mixture. Serve immediately.
