Jacuzzi Chicken Nachos are just what you to celebrate this Cinco de Mayo! Slow cooked shredded jacuzzi chicken is layered with muenster cheese and smoky chipotle corn salsa on crispy tortilla chips. Bake until the cheese is melty and then top with green onions, cilantro and avocado crema.
Pat went back to work this week after having nearly 2 months off. With the exception of a few weeks of being on call, he’s been home. We’d eat breakfast every day, do projects around the house and have game nights with our girls and it never got old. Although a little bittersweet, I’m thankful he has a job to go back to and it feels good to see life return back to some form of normalcy. Whatever that may mean.
With that said, we celebrated Cinco de Mayo a little early.
I made a batch of jacuzzi chicken, smoky chipotle corn salsa and layered it between tortilla chips and muenster cheese for the most epic nachos yet.
Toppings can be whatever you like; thinly sliced radish, green onions, cilantro, avocado Crema and hot sauce is the route we went. And boy was it delicious.
To Make These Jacuzzi Chicken Nachos You Will Need:
- tortilla chips – try to find thick and sturdy chips
- muenster cheese – my favorite cheese for nachos because it melts like a dream
- jacuzzi chicken
- smoky chipotle corn salsa
Optional toppings include: sliced radish, green onions, cilantro, avocado crema and hot sauce
Grab a skillet, sheet pan or casserole dish. Layer with thick sturdy tortilla chips, a little cheese and some of the shredded chicken.
Top a little of the smoky chipotle corn salsa.
Repeat with a second layer of chips, cheese, chicken and salsa.
And a final layer of shredded muenster.
Slip the pan onto the middle rack of your preheated 325° oven and bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until the cheese is melted and golden in spots. Once out of the oven, sprinkle with sliced green onions and minced fresh cilantro.
Top with the avocado crema, hot sauce and thinly sliced radish if desired.
The best nachos ever. Now grab a chip and cervesa, por favor and prepare to fall in love.
