my first posted recipe ever... having had soggy or burnt or disappointing nachos in restaurants far too often in public, i decided i wanted to try them myself. i went looking for nacho recipes online and did not really find what i was thinking of and decided that i needed to design my own for a couple of reasons. i wanted something with less cheese without giving up taste, i wanted to recreate the layering without sogginess and something that looked as appealing as it tasted. please bare with me, this is definitely a work in progress and perhaps others might help me perfect this idea.
Sauteed Chicken Mixture Ingredients
- 2 tablespoons cooking oil
- 1 large yellow onion, cut into strips
- 1 small red onion, cut into strips
- 1⁄2 of a green pepper
- 1⁄2 of a red pepper
- 1⁄2 of a yellow pepper
- 0.25 (8 ounce) can kernel corn
- 1⁄2 chicken bouillon cube
- 1⁄2 cup water
- fajita seasoning mix, spice (enough for your liking)
- 1 dash salt (seasoning salt might actually work better)
- 1 1⁄2-2 cups chicken breasts, cut into strips
For the pan
- 1 (200 g) bagof plain tortilla chips
- 1⁄4 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
- 1 tomatoes, cut into small 1/16ths
- 1 piece parchment paper, to cover baking pan for oven. also for tranferring onto plate after baking
- 1 green onion, cut into 1/4 inch pieces
- Saute yellow and purple onion in the cooking oil.
- Boil water and dissolve bouillon cube separately.
- Add dissolved bouillon cube to onions and peppers.
- Turn up heat to caramelize the onions and peppers for a few minutes until thickened.
- Add enough fajita seasoning spice and salt to your liking.
- Add chicken strips to mixture.
- Add corn.
- Cook this down until chicken is cooked through and water is cooked off.
- Line pan with back paper.
- Put one layer of nachos onto your pan.
- Put a layer of the chicken mixture on top. Make this layer smaller than the original layer of nachos.
- Add a layer of cheese to your liking. I used 2 to 3 tablespoons. Enough to cover the chicken mixture and a bit of the nachos.
- Another layer of nachos, again smaller than the previous layer.
- Another layer of chicken mixture.
- Finish with sprinkling cheese over the top followed with tomato slices and green onions to garnish.
- Additions - add olive slices, jalapenos, etc., as extra garnishes. I will most likely add jalapenos into the layers on another attempt.
- Bake in oven between 250f to 300f for 15 to 20 minutes or until cheese is melted and golden.
- Transfer over to plate and cut away extra backpaper.
