"Made this up and the family liked it. It will be spicy or not so spicy depending on the BBQ sauce you use!"

Ready In:




  • Chop or shred the chicken and set aside.
  • In a large skillet, saute onion and bell pepper until soft. Add garlic at the last 1-2 minutes.
  • Add reserved chicken, barbecue sauce, vinegar, brown sugar, and water and simmer until heated through (maybe 5 minutes or so).
  • Either add the cheddar cheese at this point and stir until melted, OR save to sprinkle on top of chicken.
  • Give each person some tortilla chips and top with chicken mixture. Add optional cheese.
  • Top with some sour cream or plain yogurt, if desired.

    These were a huge hit at my house! My son and his gf plus three Repo Guys all inhaled these. I made this exactly as written except that I doubled the recipe, and it was a good thing I did! I used the Scoops type chip and piled them on a tray and tossed them in the oven to melt the cheese, they came out great! Thanks WI Cheesehead!

    The flavor was excellent. I subtracted a star just because the sauce was just too runny even though I put the cheese in at first prompt to thicken it up. I eventually put the whole 2-cup bag of cheese into the sauce but it still had too much liquid. Next water. It was not needed. I would eat this thrown on a bun, too!

    I used my Roasted Chicken Breast recipe (not posted yet) to make this today. My BBQ sauce was Sweet Baby Ray's I love that stuff. This was easy to make. You may need a fork to help heap some of the chicken onto the chips. I will be making this again. Thank you for posting. Made for the *Recipe Swap 14* game 2008 in the Aussie/NZ forum. Our group was *The Kumara Kids* Group 28
