Chicken Nachos

I wish I could take credit for this yummy recipe, but I can't.

Instead I have to give credit to my new and very good friend Jill.
This is a tasty meal that she prepared for us while we visited her beautiful family.


Chicken Nachos

You will need:
2 or 3 large boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 stick of butter
1 jar of your favorite hot sauce
2 cans Rotel Tomatoes
1 large brick of Velveeta Cheese

Tortilla Chips
Toppings of your choice: we use sour cream, tomatoes, lettuce, salsa, fresh cilantro, jalepenos

To make:
Preheat oven to 375

Place the whole stick of butter in a 9x13 casserole dish
Place all 3 pieces of chicken in the casserole dish
Cover chicken breasts in hot sauce and use some extra sauce to cover the bottom of the pan

Bake the chicken, covered, for 1 hour

Mix Velveeta and 2 cans of Rotel Tomatoes in large bowl to be microwaved (or you could let it cook in a crock pot on low setting)
Heat until cheese is smooth and creamy

Once the chicken is cooked thoroughly use 2 forks to shred the meat. (this happens to be a pretty good arm work out!)
Let the shredded meat sit in the hot sauce and butter mixture for 10-15 minutes until cool.

Serve the chicken over tortilla chips, with salsa, cilantro, tomatoes, jalapenos, lettuce, and sour cream and smother with cheese sauce!

Tara said...

Carla- hahahaha! look at you think I know the caloric intake? guessing by the WHOLE stick of butter and the WHOLE brick of fake cheese, I would imagine it is relatively high!

Love you my friend!

Oh my gosh! When I worked at Epworth full time we used to go into Warsaw for lunch EVERY DAY to get Chicken Nachos at El Arriero! These look just about as tasty! Seriously, I gained like 20 pounds eating those nachos and now you have me a recipe that looks the same... tisk...tisk! (And THANK YOU!)

Jill said...

You forgot the caramelized onions and bell peppers.

I nearly peed my pants over the pic of Shane.......mostly cause I've seen that exact same face.

Jill said...

Carla, Since this is my own creation, I COMPLETELY certify that it is calorie and fat free.

The Real Life of a Red Head said...

Just posted a recipe for some super easy and ridiculously yummy cookies on my blog. Add some vanilla ice cream (Jill, I'm certain there's none of that in YOUR house) and a glass of milk, and you're set!
