1 Bag Tortilla Chips

1 Tablespoon Butter

2 Tablespoons Olive Oil

3/4 Cup Cream

4 Cloves Garlic Minced or use a Microplane

1/4 Teaspoon Fresh Black Pepper

1/4- 1/2 Teaspoon Red Pepper Flakes (if you like it to have a kick)

1/2 Cup Shredded Parmesan Cheese

1/2 Cup Pepperoni, Cut into Quarters

1/2 Green Pepper, Diced

1/4-1/2 Cup Onion, Diced (I used red onion because it looked pretty)

1/4 Cup Bacon Bits

In a cast iron pan or on a cookie sheet empty the bag of tortilla chips and set aside.  Now we will get started on the wonderful garlic cream sauce.  It's so good you are going to want to swim in it trust me.
