Nachos For A Party!

Posted by roadwarriorvet , 31 August 2009 · 809 views

One of the best things in food I love about the Southwest is Nachos. There are so many different ways of creating them and during my journeys through the Southwest US, I am always amazed at the different creations. I developed this recipe myself combining several different variations I seen over time. This recipe is great for entertaining and can even be done in an RV if you want to entertain company at the park. The best part is I found a way to make a hearty nacho appetizer dish a meal initself. A lot of people I have made this for have asked me why the lettuce does not wilt when I put it under the heat during the last step, and it is a result of the cheese melting over top of the lettuce that creates a protective barrier from the air. Enjoy and do not forget the margaritas!!!!.

Nachos

2 lb. Chicken, boneless, diced
1 lb. Tortilla chips
1 head iceberg lettuce
3 diced fresh tomatoes
1 diced onion, purple or white
1 lb. Mexican Blend shredded cheese
8 oz sour cream
8 oz guacamole
8-oz salsa, any type

Spray a half size commercial sheet pan with cooking spray. Cook chicken in sauté pan over medium heat, as an option you can season with some Mexican style seasoning, until breasts are cooked fully. Let cool, than dice. Spread Tortilla chips on sheet pan. Add chicken on top of chips. Add tomatoes and onions spreading them around chips. Than take a spoon and dab on the sour cream, guacamole, and salsa on top of the chips, spacing evenly throughout. Shred the lettuce with knife than top over chips. The lettuce can be heaping. (Note: substituting with pre-shredded back lettuce will not work, it will wilt.) After lettuce, top with cheese and place in oven at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. When cheese is melted, it is done and ready to serve. This full recipe can serve 10 to 12 very hungry people and is good for parties.








Looks awesome!

hey Road Recipe Warrior,

Your nacho dish looks absolutely delicious! I must try it, though adding a vegetarian twist by substituting the chicken with beans.

Hello Tak, the bean substitution sounds great, I will be interested to know how it works out.
