Cooking Time10 min


  • 2 cups finely shredded chicken
  • 1 cup Frank's red hot buffalo sauce
  • Tortilla chips (restaurant style)
  • 1 (15-ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 1 cup pico de gallo
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • Sliced jalapeño pepper
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.

  2. In a mixing bowl, combine chicken and buffalo sauce. Mix well and set aside.

  3. In a cast iron skillet, put a layer of chips at the bottom, followed by half of the chicken, half of the black beans, then 1 cup cheddar cheese; place another layer of chips on top, followed by the rest of the chicken, beans, then 1 cup Monterey Jack cheese.

  4. Add a few more chips on top, then sprinkle with the rest of the cheddar and jack cheese. Add blue cheese on top, then bake for 8-10 minutes, or until the cheese is melt.

  5. In the meanwhile, chop up the avocado and slice the jalapeño pepper.

  6. Once the nachos are done, add pico (do not include the liquid as the nachos will turn soggy), avocado and pepper on top. Drizzle a little more buffalo sauce if you want. Garnish with cilantro and serve immediately.

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.
