~ Cheesy Chicken Nacho's Supreme ~ Cassie's Way

This is my rendition of an appetizer we had when we took our daughter out for her birthday.
Hubby suggested I try my hand at them. Well, I'm here to tell you a few days later I made my own and they were awesome! I layered mine, so there would be goodies with every bite. The restaurant didn't and when you reached the bottom of the plate all that was left is chips.

My family was ever so pleased and I'll be making them again for New Years!

I used my own fresh guacamole which I'll include the link to my recipe. It knocked them out of the ballpark.

Enjoy!

Family thought they were awesome.

Other toppings that could be used would be black olives, cilantro, red onion, anything you like on your nacho's. Shredded cheese could be added to the top as well and placed under broiler to melt a few minutes.
