|Simple Chicken Nachos|
Use your favorite tortilla chips and your favorite salsa. Make it yours. I think you'll like it.
- 1 pound chicken breast, cut into chunks, or about 6-8 chicken tenders
- 1/2 to 3/4 cup salsa (I like Herdez medium)
- salt to taste
- 1/2 bag tortilla chips (about 7-8 ounces)
- 2 cups medium cheddar cheese, shredded
- 1 cup pepper Jack cheese, shredded
Over medium heat, bring chicken and salsa to a simmer and cook until tender and shreds easily. If you're using the chicken tenders, when chicken is cooked, remove the tendon at the fat end with tongs or a knife and fork.
Sprinkle chicken with a little salt and set aside. Turn oven on to broil.
Spread tortilla chips onto an oven-proof platter that will hold them in about a single layer, but it's okay if they overlap a bit.
Evenly distribute the shredded chicken over the chips.
Evenly distribute the cheese over the chicken and chips.
Place platter in oven and broil until cheese is melted and bubbly. Stay nearby or put on a timer for two minutes if you have to step away. Keep checking until they're done. Carefully remove from oven with oven mitts and serve.
This would probably taste good with guacamole & sour cream, if that's what you're into, but I like mine straight-up.
Makes about 3-4 servings for hungry people.
