We have been craving nachos lately and usually we just do our own individual plates where we toss on some cheese and throw it in the microwave. But we have really been wanting to make a big ol' pan in the oven all piled high and layered with yummy things. We finally made these buffalo chicken nachos and they were super good! In fact, the first pan was gone before I remembered to take a picture, so I had to take one of the second batch, which didn't cook as nicely. (Of course that would happen.)
3-4 chicken breasts, cooked and shredded
1/2 cup buffalo sauce (We found a recipe online and made our own, using Frank's Red Hot Sauce.)
Pepper Jack cheese, shredded or sliced
Jalapenos, sliced (We used the deli-sliced kind from the jar.)
Line baking pan with foil.
Lightly coat chicken with the buffalo sauce. Spread tortilla chips on pan, sprinkle on cheese, add chicken & cover with more cheese. Top with the jalapeno slices.
Broil in oven until cheese is melted. Watch closely so it doesn't burn. (Our second batch got a little crispy.)
For a yummy variation try Nacho Cheese Doritos, tortilla chips with a hint of lime, or even Fritos!
