Creamy chicken nachos

January 9, 2011


It’s a football playoff weekend, and our beloved Chiefs are playing tomorrow, so we decided to spend our weekend tailgating! We were foolish enough to actually go to a playoff game 15 years ago, and my feet are still numb from sitting in the stands at Arrowhead Stadium in below-zero temperatures for 4 hours. This year, we’ll be watching from our cozy house, with yummy treats like these nachos. (We also had chili cheese fries today, and tomorrow we’ll be having pulled pork sandwiches and spicy chicken wings. Yum!)


There’s really no recipe for nachos, but here’s how I make mine. Cover a jellyroll pan with foil, and spray with non-stick spray. Put down a layer of tortilla chips, then add 1 cup cubed cooked chicken, 1/2 can drained black beans, 4 ounces cubed cream cheese, and a cup of shredded cheese (I like Colby Jack). 


Pop the pan under the broiler for a few minutes until everything is melty and creamy. Then add another layer of everything, starting with the chips and ending with the cheese. Under the broiler again for a few minutes.


Of course, you can add tomatoes, peppers, or anything else you like to these nachos. I love these creamy nachos, and the flavor combination of the chicken, cream cheese and black beans. Enjoy the nachos, and Go, Chiefs!!
