What’s for Dinner: Nachos

It’s sort of become a late night tradition that whenever we go to to Canada, we go out for nachos and desserts with our cousins.

A couple of weeks ago, I was craving those particular nachos… so decided to make my own version. The only thing I did differently was that I had diced avocados in mine… because who doesn’t love avocados?

Here’s what I use:

  • Tortilla chips
  • Taco seasoning
  • Chicken, cut into very tiny pieces
  • Salt, black pepper, garlic powder, paprika, and cayenne paper (to taste)
  • Nacho Taco Blend Shredded Cheese (the one I use is a combination of Cheddar and Monterey Jack Cheese that is seasoned with spices)
  • Avocados, diced
  • Tomatoes, diced
  • Cilantro, minced

Here’s how I make my nachos:

  1. I take the bite sized chicken pieces and I marinate it with salt, black pepper, garlic powder, paprika, and cayenne pepper. On low to medium heat I cook the chicken until it’s almost done cooking. Add the taco seasoning, and let the chicken absorb the flavors.
  2. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  3. Line your baking tray with tortilla chips.
  4. Sprinkle a generous amount of cheese on all the tortilla.
  5. Add the layer of chicken.
  6. Bake in your preheated oven for about five to seven minutes, until the cheese melts completely.
  7. Once you take it out of the oven, add the diced tomatoes and avocados on top. Sprinkle the cilantro last.
  8. Serve warm and enjoy!
