Buffalo Chicken Nachos

In between all of the excitement surrounding us with Christmas just around the corner (can you believe it’s less than ten days away!), we’ve also been enjoying some exciting football games these last few weekends!  Our hometown team, the New England Patriots, have been showing us some thrills this football season, and this past weekend was no exception!

And for us – football is synonymous with buffalo chicken.  We’ve shared a few of our favorite buffalo chicken recipes before (see here, here, here and here) and our latest is this recipe for Buffalo Chicken Nachos!

How do you make Buffalo Chicken Nachos?

These Buffalo Chicken Nachos start with a batch of our popular Pulled Buffalo Chicken. You make it in the slow-cooker and it’s so easy and so delicious!

Then – we layer the pulled chicken over some crisp nacho chips, as well as a of black beans, blue cheese dressing, crumbled blue cheese, and shredded Monterey Jack and Fontina cheeses. The loaded up tray is put in the oven and baked until the cheese is all melted and gooey!  Once the Buffalo Chicken Nachos come out of the oven, a drizzle of Franks’ RedHot Sauce and some fresh chopped tomatoes finish things off.

Serve immediately and dig in!
