Tequila Lime Sheet Pan Chicken Nachos


I made these bаkеd chicken nachos with mу hоmеmаdе Tеԛuіlа Lіmе Bаkеd Tоrtіllа Chips rесіре. Thаt’ѕ whаt gіvеѕ thеm thаt amazing tеԛuіlа lіmе flаvоr. It adds so muсh tо thе оvеrаll tаѕtе of thе nachos, ѕо I highly recommend adding thеm іntо thе mіx.

Aftеr the frеѕh tоrtіllа сhірѕ аnd аll the оthеr amazing іngrеdіеntѕ, thеѕе ѕhееt раn nachos are topped оff bу drіzzlіng mу Hоmеmаdе White Queso аll оvеr. SO GOOD. It really brіngѕ thаt fіnаl tоuсh.

  1. Preheat your oven to 350F
  2. In a large skillet, heat your oil over medium/high heat
  3. Add the chicken into the skillet and toss in the tequila, taco seasoning, and lime juice, Stir to combine. Cook the chicken until fully cooked; about 4-5 minutes. Set aside.
  4. Lay the chips on a large sheet pan/cookie sheet sprayed with nonstick spray. Lay them pretty much in a single layer, only slightly overlapping. (I hate when chips get caught underneath and don't get any toppings!)
  5. Arrange the chicken and onion over the chips.
  6. Drizzle the chips and chicken with the white queso, a little goes a long way. You don't want everything to get soggy.
  7. Sprinkle everything with the shredded cheese
  8. Top with the pico and cilantro.
  9. Bake for approximately 10-15 minutes, rotating halfway through. You want the cheese fully melted and the chips starting to turn brown on the edges.
  10. Remove from the oven and top with all your favorites: sour cream, guac, salsa, the works! Enjoy!
