I place all the ingredients in individual bowls and let everyone top their nachos themselves. I set out the shredded nacho chicken, tortilla chips, chopped green onions, chopped cilantro, black beans, shredded cheddar cheese, and sour cream.

If you would like it spicier, use a medium or hot salsa.

This chicken is very versatile and can be used in other dishes as well. I have had success using it on salads, in tacos, in burritos, and on rice.

I love the cooking method and ease of this the handy, dandy, electric pressure cooker. It makes the chicken so juicy and tender. The chicken really absorbs all the flavor goodness from the salsas and taco seasoning. These chicken nachos are delicious! Can't wait to try the chicken in some burritos next. The Test Kitchen
