Serves: 4-6 servings
 
Ingredients
For the Chicken Mixture
  • 3 C cooked and shredded chicken (rotisserie chicken works well)
  • ⅓ C barbecue sauce of your choice
  • ¼ C red bell pepper, chopped
  • 3 tbsp red onion, chopped
  • 3 tbsp jalapeno pepper, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
For the Nacho Toppings
  • Tortilla Chips
  • ½ C tomatoes, diced
  • ⅓ C shredded cheese (I used a combination of mozzarella and cheddar)
  • ¼ C blue cheese crumbles
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • 1 tbsp red onion, chopped
  • 1 tbsp jalapeno, chopped
  • chopped cilantro, for garnish
  • additional barbecue sauce, for garnish
Instructions
  1. Combine chicken, barbecue sauce, red pepper, onion, jalapeno pepper, and minced garlic in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook for 5 minutes or until mixture is heated through and veggies are tender. Stir occasionally.
  2. Turn broiler on high. Arrange tortilla chips on the bottom of a baking sheet with a lip or a 9×13 inch baking dish. Top with half of the chicken mixture, half of the tomatoes, ½ cup of shredded cheese, and 2 tablespoons blue cheese. Add another layer of tortilla chips and top with remaining chicken, tomatoes, shredded cheese and blue cheese. Broil for 6-8 minutes or until cheese is melted and starts to turn a light golden brown.
  3. Carefully remove from the oven and top with avocado, additional onion and jalapeno, cilantro and a drizzle of barbecue sauce.
  4. Serve warm.
