"Super-simple but totally killer nachos! These are to die for with some guacamole, sour cream and salsa. If it's too spicy for you, just leave out the cayenne." — Michelle

These nachos were the BOMB!!!!! I made this for lunch yesterday. I did mine a little different though. I read through the reviews first and got the idea of adding taco seasoning to the chicken so I used 1 pack. I also added a lot more cayenne pepper(not sure how much). I used a full 8oz bag of mexican cheese. I did everything else the same as the recipe. The toppings we used were sour cream, salsa, olives, and jalapeno peppers. My husband and three kids loved every bit of it. D.E.L.I.C.I.O.U.S
These nachos are pretty good. My only complaint is that they were so very SPICY!! I mean HOTT!!! My husband couldn't finish eating them, maybe I did something wrong, but be careful with the pepper!! :-)
This recipe was delicious! My husband doesn't like cayenne pepper so we substituted taco seasoning instead and it turned out great.
Let me be the first to say that these were YUMMY!! I loved the way the chicken turned out after being fried in the cayenne pepper. I added some garlic powder, minced garlic, chili powder, and cumin to the mixture too. I will probably use this method of preparing chicken for our other Mexican dishes. The flavor combination was just great. We even ate the (few) leftovers the next day, even though the chips were soggy from being in the fridge. This one's a keeper. Thanks Michelle!
YUM! Can't say enough good things about this. I just used the chicken, cheese, and chips, with no extras and it was PERFECT! I have actually made this three times in the past month since I got the recipe. Only modification was adding a tbsp of butter and some teriyaki sauce to the chicken while stir-frying to give it additional flavor. DELICIOUS!
My family loves this. I leave out the cayenne and use taco seasoning. I also add a layer of refried or black beans, and I use more cheese. It's really good!
First of all THANK YOU for this great recipe!!! I've only tweeked it a little but I've made it several times and everyone loves it. My first tweek: make your own chips! Get some corn tortillas and cut them into triangles. Then fry them in oil, salt and voila! Really crispy chips. THEN - my second tweek; I added Sazon Goya seasoning and some fajita seasoning as well as an onion to the chicken as I cooked it. I cooked the heck out of the chicken and chopped it very fine. Pop it in the oven, pull it out, plop some sour cream and salsa on it and WOW! Superb! Thanks again!
Great base recipe but needs individualizing to be super. We added a can of refried beans before baking and only had two layers. We topped the nachos after baking with sour cream, salsa, guacamole, chopped onion, sliced black olives and jalapenos. The end product was delicious!
