BUFFALO FREAKIN’ CHICKEN NACHOS!
I’ll whisper it: Buffalo Chicken Nachos.
Words cannot describe the love I have for Frank’s Red Hot sauce. We all love it on our chicken wings, but some of us love it on everything. I came across this recipe randomly, and seriously haven’t been able to stop thinking about it since. If you have the time or desire, you can cook your own chicken or make your own tortilla chips, but if you’re like me, you’ll just buy a roasted chicken from the grocery store, remove the meat, toss in a plastic bag and shake with Frank’s Red Hot and buy a bag of your favorite tortilla chips. Easy peasy.
Since I’m pulling this recipe (and images) from HowSweetEats.com, I’ll post the instructions as they do:
8 whole wheat tortillas
4-5 ounces of shredded chicken
1 1/2 cups sharp cheddar cheese
1- 2 ounces crumbled gorgonzola
1/4 cup buffalo wing sauce (or more)
1/4 cup chopped scallions
avocado for garnish
olive oil for spritzing
Preheat the oven to 450.
Cut the tortillas into wedges and spritz with olive oil then sprinkle with sea salt and pepper. Bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown. (You can also skip this step and use tortilla chips.) Once finished, add a layer to the bottom of a baking dish, then top with chicken, cheese, buffalo wing sauce and your other toppings. Continue layering until chips and ingredients are gone. Bake for 5-10 minutes, until cheese melts. Drizzle additional wing sauce over top and garnish with more scallions and avocado.
