Nacho recipe for Leafs game tonight

Hey y'all!
I was wondering if anyone had ideas on a nacho recipe (apart from throwing some shredded cheese on) for the hockey game tonight. HINT: I like spicy so if you guys have any suggestions I'd appreciate hearing them

  1. How hungry are you?

    Get a good rotisserie chicken and shred it (don't use all of it, just the white meat and save the rest for soup making later in the week). Rinse and drain a can of black beans. Then get out the biggest cookie sheet you have, cover with one layer of chips, sprinkle with the shredded chicken, light layer of beans, light layer of chopped onions, shake on some spicey buffalo sauce, some crushed red pepper seeds for hotness, a few sliced jalepenos, some grated mexican blend cheese then repeat with another layer.

    Bake in oven around 350-400 degrees, 15-20 minutes or so, just keep an eye on it, til all cheese (including bottom layer cheese) is melted. You could sprinkle some chopped green onion on top after you pull it out of the oven for tastiness and decoration.

    Serve with plates on the side and a giant bowl of salsa and bowl of sour cream.

    1. Place one layer of thick, corn tortilla chips in an oven proof bowl . Top with grated sharp cheddar, jack and mozzarella and sprinkle a little of your cooked meat (chorizo, chili, short ribs, chipotle tinga, etc.) on top. Bake at 350 until cheese is melted. Repeat the process until you have built up the nachos to your desired amount and top with the rest of your meat and and a generous amount of grated cheese. Bake until melted and top with sliced onions, jalapenos, salsa, cilantro and sour cream.

      Alternatively you could try this as a poutine recipe to keep it Canadian.

        Thank you very much you guys! I'm going to try both of these ideas tonight.

          1. re: natewrites

            So sorry I haven't logged on here in about two weeks but I tried your recipe out first natewrites and it was fantastic! I've made it several times since then for game night and it always went over well.

            The recipe suggestion by jungman turned out just as well. Such easy recipes and both are really good!

              nate always has good recipes and a kind heart that allows her to share them. When we have nachos, we either do them very plain and classic; e.g., shredded cheese and pickled jalapenos, or do it up big and nasty-style: Chips covered with ground chili-spiced meat; guacamole, cheese, salsa, cilantro, etc.

      2. Too late for the OP, but I like these:
        (just make sure to pay attention, half the cheese is for the sauce, the other half goes directly on the pile of chips... I learned this the hard way...)
