Southwestern Chopped Chicken Nachos

Sometimes there’s really nothing more comforting than marathoning a trashy TV show and indulging in a big ol’ plate of nachos.  I mean, how DELICIOUS do these look?

I’m a sucker for nachos…I’m a sucker for any chip and dip, really.  I love the classy nachos with the delicious poblano pepper sauce and I love the dirty nachos with the hot Velveeta cheese sauce that’s definitely not real food.  If it’s a chip with meat and cheese and sauce on it, chances are I’ll be on board.

So the other day as I was marathoning New Girl (I’m SO behind), I had a serious craving for some nachos…I had all these ingredients to make a healthy southwestern salad…but who wants salad when you can make nachos in 10 minutes?!

Filled with amazing flavor and perfect with a pint of beer and a guilty pleasure Netflix show that you only watch when your significant other is at work, these Southwestern Chopped Chicken Nachos are everything you need in your life right now.

Southwestern Chopped Chicken Nachos

Ingredients:

  • 1 bag tortilla chips (I LOVE the El Ranchero chips with salt)
  • 3 chicken breasts, cooked and cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 ½ cups frozen corn, thawed
  • 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 tomatoes, diced
  • ½ red onion, diced
  • 2 cups (or more!) shredded cheddar cheese (or whatever cheese you like!)
  • ¼ cup cilantro, chopped
  • 1 avocado, diced

Directions:

Arrange chips on large baking sheet.  Top with chicken, corn, beans, tomatoes, onion, and cheese.  Bake in 450 degree oven until cheese is melted.  Baking time depends on your oven size, but 10 or so minutes is probably good.

Remove from oven and top with avocado and cilantro.
