Chicken Fajita Nachos are a favorite appetizer at a little Mexican place my daughter takes us to in Charlotte, NC. I live in Tennessee and was craving them so I decided to create my own and I love the way they turned out!!! I have just joined the Sunday Supper Movement and am so excited to have this recipe included as a Big Game Day Recipe with all of the other amazing Sunday Supper bloggers. Don’t miss out on any of the amazing  Big Game recipes from Sunday Supper bloggers, there are links to all of them at the end of this post.  And a big THANK YOU to TR Crumbley of Gluten Free Crumbley for hosting this fun event.

To make Chicken Fajita Nachos start by marinating the chicken (cut in bite size pieces) in a combination of lime juice and spices (cumin, onion salt, chili powder & cayenne pepper) for at least 30 minutes or up to a day. This gives the chicken a delicious lime flavor with a kick.

Chicken Fajita NachosAbout 20 minutes before you are ready to eat heat a frying pan with about 1 Tbsp of olive oil and cook the chicken pieces over medium heat until tender (about 10 minutes).  Cut onion and peppers into pieces and sauté them until tender (about 10 minutes). On a large platter put about ¾ a bag on tortilla chips. Combine the chicken and peppers if you haven’t already and pour on top, distributing the mixture across the chips.

 

For the queso I use a Jalapeño  Queso Restaurant Style Cheese Melt (it’s in the Cheese Department of my local grocery store). Follow the directions (shred, add milk, and microwave just over a minute) to make the Queso (you can substitute your favorite queso). Pour over top of the platter covering as much of the chicken pepper mixture as you can.
