Nachos are always a hit in the Test Kitchen and we loved the addition of chicken to this recipe. It makes them more of a meal. We loved that these nachos are quick and simple. A great recipe if you're suddenly craving nachos. They're great alone, but you could even add traditional toppings too.

Note: We opted to mix most of the chicken in with the cheese. We kept a little bit out to sprinkle over the cheese sauce when serving. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
