Chicken Nachos

I've been making these Chicken Nachos for years and are a family favorite.  The filling is baked and then served along side tortilla chips and sour cream.   These would make a perfect snack next week while watching the Super Bowl.

4 Chicken breasts, cooked, finely diced (4cups)
1 teaspoon butter
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped red or green pepper
1 (4oz) can chopped green chilies
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder
2/3 cup chopped tomatoes or 1 (14.5 oz) can Petite Diced Tomatoes, drained well
12oz Monterey jack or Pepper Jack (for a little spice) cheese, shredded

1.  Saute onion and pepper in butter until tender.
2.  In a large bowl add onion mixture, chicken, green chilies, salt, cumin, chili powder, tomatoes and cheese.
4.  Place in baking dish and bake 350 for 25 minutes or until bubbly.

Serve with tortilla chips, sour cream.

Serves 6-8 as an appetizer


  1. Made your chix nachos, delicious, aunt mary

  2. I haven't tried, but I'd like to. It sounds great! I wonder how this would freeze for future meals?
