  • Rimmed baking sheet


To make pickled red onions

  • ½ large red onion
  • 1 cup rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 large garlic clove halved
  • 1 tsp black peppercorns

For spicy mayo

  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • 1 Tbsp sriracha
  • 1 Tbsp fresh lime juice

For the nachos

  • 1 lb garlic-ginger sausage or other Asian-inspired sausage
  • olive oil
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • Tortilla chips
  • ½ cup grated carrots
  • 5 medium radishes thinly sliced
  • ¼ - ½ cup Kimchi chopped
  • ½ cup fresh cilantro
  • 2 scallions thinly sliced
  • 1 Tbsp sesame seeds
  • 2 limes cut into wedges


To make pickled red onions

  • Place red onion in a colander. Bring about 1 quart (4 cups) of water to a boil, then pour over onions to blanch.
  • In a glass jar with lid, place vinegar, salt, sugar, garlic, and black peppercorns. Place onions inside, put the lid on, and shake well. Refrigerate for 1 hour.

To make spicy mayo

  • Combine mayo, sriracha, and lime juice in a small bowl, then whisk to combine. Set aside. 
  • To make nachos
  • Heat a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat, then add sesame oil and 1 Tbsp olive oil. Remove sausage from casing, then add to hot pan and break up with a wooden spatular. Cook about 5-7 minutes, or until sausage is fully cooked through. Set aside.
  • Cover the bottom of a baking sheet with a layer of tortilla chips, then broil on high for about 2 minutes, just to warm up the chips. Top with cooked sausage, pickled red onion, grated carrots, sliced radish, kimchi, cilantro, scallions, and sesame seeds. Drizzle the entire pan with spicy mayo. Serve with lime wedges.
