Chicken Fajita Nachos


The hubs is working late tonight so I planned a simple dinner that was going to be quick, easy, and satisfying. These nachos were just what I was in the mood for. I posted them on Facebook and many of my lovely friends asked for the recipe. Your wish is my command! I can't take all the credit...You can find it here! Enjoy!

Ingredients
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 large cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 small red bell pepper, cut into small strips
  • 1 small green bell pepper, cut into small strips
  • 1/2 sweet onion, sliced
  • 1 large cooked chicken breast, shredded (approximately 1 1/2 cups)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Assorted tortilla chips (You can use blue corn, chili lime, and/or plain white corn)
  • 6 ounces mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 2 ounces pepper jack cheese, shredded
  • 2 plum tomatoes, diced and/or medium salsa
  • Handful cilantro leaves


  • Directions:
    Preheat the broiler. Prepare a baking sheet with aluminum foil, and spray with cooking spray. Heat the olive oil and garlic in a skillet over medium heat. Add the bell peppers and onion, and saute for 5-6 minutes, until the vegetables are tender. Add the shredded chicken, spices, salt, and pepper. Saute for an additional 2 minutes. Spread the tortilla chips in an even layer on the prepared baking sheet. Top with the bell pepper, onion, and chicken mixture. Sprinkle with cheese. Broil for 5 minutes, until the cheese is golden and bubbly. Transfer to a platter, and top with the diced tomatoes/salsa and cilantro.
