Actually there are just three serious ingredients to consider when creating the perfect plate of nachos and those are chips, cheese, and the toppings. Chips, of course tortilla chips (you can use either flavored or plain), cheese – you will need both cheddar and mozzarella and toppings is the fun part, you can use whatever you wish to use. There is a wide choice for toppings, like salsa, beans, capsicum, store bought chicken, corn, tomatoes, olives etc etc and list can go on.

In addition to these ingredients, what makes this chicken nachos so special is this delicious spicy sauce which we drizzle on top of the chips. The flavor of that sauce is just out of this world.

These chicken nachos are absolutely delicious – don’t count on having any leftovers.

The most important thing you have to keep in mind is that, you shouldn’t make this beforehand. The last thing you want is a soggy nacho without any CRUNCH! So bake it just before serving and enjoy.
