Travel up to Toronto to root for the Toronto Blue Jays and you'll likely come across these nachos, which use jerk seasoning to infuse flavor in not one ingredient but two ingredients of this recipe.

Directions

For the jerk-infused sour cream

Combine the first 12 ingredients in a blender and blend into a fine paste. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Add seasoning to sour cream, stir to combine. Set aside 3 cups of the jerk-infused sour cream and save the rest for later use.

For the nachos

Place the tortillas on a serving platter and cover with jerk chicken. Add the cheese sauce, pico de gallo, and coleslaw. Drizzle with sour cream and garnish with scallions.
