Buffalo Chicken Nachos {Football Friday}

Friday, September 20, 2013

These nachos were inspired by one of my favorite Auburn restaurants, Momma Goldberg's. Momma G's nachos are very unique. They make their nachos with Doritos, jalapeño jack cheese slices and jalapeños.  I decided to kick up their version with some buffalo chicken. O-M-G! Delicious!  I love Doritos and buffalo chicken, so these are right up my alley.

These nachos are very easy to make and are great for a party. They go quick; be prepared to make lots! I like to make an assembly line so a new batch is always ready to go. I assemble the nachos on foil and then pop them under the broiler when I need them. Add these nachos to your next tailgating/couchgating party!

Buffalo Chicken Nachos
(Printable Recipe)

  • 6 oz Nacho Cheese Doritos
  • 8 oz Pepper Jack Cheese slices
  • 2 1/2 oz sliced pickled jalapeños 
  • 8-10 oz cooked chopped chicken
  • 1/2 cup buffalo sauce

Toss cooked chicken with wing sauce.

Preheat oven broiler. Line a baking sheet with foil.

Place Doritos in a single layer on baking sheet. Spread the cheese slices over the chips evenly to the rim. Using tongs, spread the saucy chicken around the tortilla chips. Top with jalapeño slices.

Broil in oven until cheese is melted completely (should toast quickly). Transfer nachos to a serving platter.

Pin It!
