Nachos are a must-have at Super Bowl parties every year but are also a perfectly acceptable lunch or dinner if you ask us. They tend to be a fan favorite, no matter the occasion. But there’s nothing worse than being left with the outer tortilla chips that don’t have their fair share of toppings included. We have a quick trick to prevent that from happening. Leave no chip behind by arranging the tortilla chips and toppings into multiple layers, making sure each bite gets plenty of love.

Chicken Nachos

We keep things simple with this recipe and use a combination of pre-made store-bought ingredients with a handful of homemade components. Tortilla chips, shredded cheddar cheese, chopped rotisserie chicken and canned black beans form the base of the nachos. But we all know that nachos are really all about the toppings. The two homemade toppings for this recipe are quick pickled red onions and a simple cilantro lime crema.
