Chicken Nachos

My football loving family considers Super Bowl Sunday a holiday. No matter what teams are playing, we are all together and our meal planning starts weeks in advance. Our day is filled with lots of loud discussions, armchair quarterbacking and tons of delicious food. This year, along with some other dishes, I will be making these chicken nachos.

These nachos are so good. I love to load my nachos up with all the toppings, but I make one half of a platter loaded and leave the other half just meat and cheese to give everyone options.

Because I usually take several dishes, I love anything that makes my life easier. I will stop in our local super store to pick up a rotisserie chicken. Once I get home, I shred it and cook it up with the tomato sauce, and tomatoes and chilies right away. When it’s done, I throw it in the refrigerator and all I have to do is assemble and heat it up on the day.

This chicken nachos recipe makes enough for two very generous large platters of nachos. Consider making a spicy and a mild platter.
