3 slices of deli sliced corned beef
8 ounces of sauerkraut, and squeezed dry, I used Silverfloss Bavarian Style
3 Tablespoons of Thousand Island dressing
5-6 ounces of Swiss cheese grated
I love nachos. I love Reubens too. It was only a matter of time before I created nachos from my favorite sandwich. This is a very fast and easy recipe to prepare.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
On a large baking/pizza tray, spread tortilla chips out. Tear up pieces of corned beef and placebon top of tortilla chips. Drain 8 ounces of the sauerkraut and place on several paper towels. Squeeze out the liquid from the sauerkraut. You want it dry because you will be mixing thousand island in it and you don’t want soggy nachos! Place sauerkraut in a bowl and mix in thousand island dressing. Place and spread out over the corned beef. Cover with Swiss cheese and bake for 5 minutes or until cheese is melted. Serve and enjoy.
The secret to a good Reuben is dry sauerkraut. Whether its nachos, burgers or sandwiches. Also, if you are layering the chips, lay down on layer of chips, meat, sauerkraut thousand island mixture and cheese. Repeat this for every layer. You may need to adjust the amount of ingredients and cooking time for multiple layers of nachos. Serve and enjoy!
