These hearty supreme chicken nachos are just what the doctored ordered for a gameday treat, a shareable appetizer, or even a quick dinner with your choice of toppings. This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone.
We haven’t even hit the holiday season and I am already exhausted! Between school schedules, art lessons, and being deep in staining the deck and fence, there is a lot on our plates. Oh, and did I mention we welcomed a new sweet furry family member? Ms. Pepper, our adopted hound mix is settling in well and bonding with my son. They are two peas in a pod! We are working on her manners, but that does take time. Try as I may, sometimes dinner is an afterthought. As in, I remember that I forgot to pull anything for dinner! Oops. Chicken nachos to the rescue!
Oddly enough, our weekends are the most hectic. A family that works together grows together, and boy do we fit that! When I am covered in sawdust or paint, the last thing I want to do is cook. So what’s a girl to do when you need something effortless and delicious? Yeah, I hate fast food so my solution is to pop in and get a rotisserie chicken and side dishes.
Oh, and here is the best part! For us three, those rotisserie chickens make more than one meal. I promised hubby that I would relent on my ever growing honey-do list this season to allow him the pleasure of watching his Sunday Football games. He certainly deserves it for all the hard work he puts in. He also looks forward to the traditional man food and politely looks at me with those puppy eyes. Seriously, the guy knows my weaknesses. So I use the leftover chicken to make him some supreme chicken nachos. This is real man food with all it’s cheesy, gooey, spicy, awesomeness!
These are super easy and you can add whatever toppings you like to them. You can layer them in any oven safe dish or cast iron pan. First, layer everything like this 1/2 chips-> 1/2 of the cheese/chicken/chili/toppings->other 1/2 chips ->the rest of the toppings. This way every chip will be loaded. Pop them in the oven under broil until all of the cheese melts through. Add the cold toppings such as tomatoes, sour cream, green onions, or avocado. The choice of toppings is endless!
Gotta love man food and, even better, that he thinks I am a great wife for making it!
