Loaded Chicken Nachos on plateThese restaurant-style chicken nachos are easy to make. I didn't have tortilla chips handy so I made my own using tortillas I cut into triangles. This can make a nice appetizer for a group, or a shareable meal for two.


Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 35 minutes


  • 6 oz chicken, chopped
  • 1/4 onion, sliced
  • 2 tsp taco seasoning
  • tortillas cut into triangles
  • oil
  • 1 cup finely shredded cheese
  • pickled jalapeno slices
  • salsa
  • sour cream
  • green onion, chopped


  1. Heat some oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add chicken and onions. Cook until chicken is no longer pink and onions are translucent.
  2. chicken & onions in pan
  3. Stir in taco seasoning. Cook until chicken and onions are browned, a few minutes. Transfer to a plate and cover.
  4. cooked chicken & onions

  5. Wipe out pan and add a couple tablespoons of oil to it over medium-high heat. Add tortilla triangles. Cook for about 20 seconds.
  6. cooking tortilla chips
  7. Flip and cook another 15 to 20 seconds. Transfer to a plate lined with a paper towel. Continue making the rest of your chips.

Between you and Judy I think I'll have enough new ideas to maybe use up all of 'set aside' chicken. This sounds really good and are we ready for some 'junk food'!! Nice to use with our tortillas too.
I'm fortunate as one of my sons shop for necessities so I do not have to. He is soo careful so I'm glad to see he is taking this very seriously. Even makes me throw away the bags in outside container.
Be safe everybody!!
