Loaded BBQ Chicken Nachos




I love a good plate of nachos. Especially piled high with chicken, cheese, and bacon. Top it with smoky BBQ sauce and homemade queso and I'm drooling! Now I know it's not the healthiest of meals but a girl has got to splurge once in a while! And tonight's dinner was a definite splurge!


Loaded BBQ Chicken Nachos
Serves 4

Ingredients
4 cups tortilla chips
1 cup cooked shredded chicken
3/4 cup BBQ Sauce
1/2 cup creamy queso (recipe below)
1/2 cup shredded cheese (I used a four cheese Mexican Blend)
1/2 cup cooked and crumbled bacon 
1 shallot finely chopped
1 jalapeno sliced
1/2 cup tomatoes, chopped (I like grape tomatoes)

Pre-Heat oven to 375
In a large bowl combine chicken and bbq sauce. Mix well and set aside. Arrange tortilla chips in a casserole dish. Pour queso evenly over chips. Top with bbq chicken. Add bacon and then shredded cheese. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until cheese is melted. Top with jalapeno slices, tomatoes, and shallots. Enjoy!

For the Queso 
8 oz white american cheese cut into 1-inch cubes
1/4 cup diced green chile's
1/4 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
2/3 cup milk

In a small saucepan over medium-low heat combine all ingredients stirring often until cheese is smooth and starting to bubble.

  4. Good morning! Thanks for visiting my blog and commenting. I wanted to return the favor and the photo of those nachos makes me hungry! I am allergic to chicken though so would it work just as well with ground beef or shredded pork? We love these kind of flavors around here.
