What a great twist on traditional nachos. I've had far more than my share of nachos over the years, and this is something I really hadn't considered before. I like the addition of blue cheese, which really helps the Buffalo chicken feel, though I've never tried that cheese on regular nachos before. This is something I'll be making for sure.
