What’s a nachos-style baguette? Well, how about nachos that taste like pizza? Sounds like a terrific combo, right? Try it as a tasty appetizer – or even a main dish. 

The wild blueberry topping gets even better when you make it an hour or two ahead so the flavours have time to develop. You want to give our dried wild blueberries time to plump up in the liquid and explode with flavour.

Steps

  1. Place rack in the middle of the oven. Preheat oven to to 200 °C (400 °F). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. For the wild blueberry topping
    Combine all topping ingredients in a bowl. Set aside

  3. For the nachos
    Combine tomatoes, chorizo and oil in a large bowl. Add pepper to taste. Add baguette slices and mix well.

  4. Spread nachos mixture on baking sheet and top with cheese. Bake for about 15 minutes or until cheese has melted and baguette slices are crusty.

  5. Top nachos with blueberry mixture. Garnish with fresh basil and serve right away.

Recommendations

If the cherry tomatoes are very juicy, use a clean tea towel or reusable paper towel to dry them off. If the baguette is fresh, toast it in the oven for 5 minutes before adding to tomato mixture.
