Mouthwatering BBQ chicken nachos: Try the recipe

Barbecue chicken nachos may be the perfect, year-round snack.

With the combination of carby goodness with oodles of savory toppers like avocado, jalapenos, and more, we’re yet to meet a plate of nachos we don’t like. And nachos from Elizabeth Van Lierde’s new book “Everyday Entertaining: 110+ Recipes for Going All Out When You’re Staying In” take a humble platter of the finger food to new heights.

“One of my secret weapon recipes. No big game day is complete without these simple, yet super flavorful BBQ chicken nachos. This is that recipe that people text me for on Sunday morning of the Super Bowl,” Van Lierde said.

“This thick platter of nachos is baked with juicy pulled BBQ chicken, beans and melty cheddar cheese. Then topped with an array of fresh toppings like cilantro, jalapenos, onions, avocado, and more BBQ sauce. I never serve them without a huge dollop of sour cream, my favorite,” she added.
