Kettle Chip Chicken Nachos in the hooooooouse! Happy Friday, guys! Today is extra special, because I’ve made you my very favorite thing in life:
Nachos. ♡ ♡ ♡ Sorry Trevor/Teddy, love you!
These aren’t just aaaany regular old nachos though; these are made with two kinds of Kettle Brand Chips: Jalapeno and Sea Salt, my easy black beans, chicken, gooey cheese, sweet corn, dollops of sour cream, and some green chiles and jalapeños for good measure. These are the easy chicken nachos you’ve been looking for!
I mean, it’s just, I can’t, I love…
I’m at a loss for words, people! You better believe that means these kettle chip chicken nachos are good.
As we told you in the video above (check it out!) we love this Kettle Chip Chicken Nachos recipe for 3 reasons:
#1: Nachos. We love ’em. Caaan’t get enough of ’em.
#2: Kettle chips: The texture and flavor takes nachos to a whole new level.
#3: It’s the easiest recipe ever! Perfect for a hearty appetizer, quick dinner, or late night munchies!
Although this recipe is super simple, I’ve been doing a lot of, um, research, for this post. Orrr at least that’s what I told Trevor when we’d go out the past couple of
months years and I’d see nachos on the menu and just HAVE to order them.
Nachos for Friday Night Mexican Night, Crab Nachos at the nearest bar, seriously food porn worthy Cheese Whiz (yes. don’t knock it ’til you’ve tried it) Nachos at the local pub…I’ve even gone as far as yelping “best nachos in Seattle”.
If there’s nachos on the menu, you better believe they’re gonna end up in mah belly!
I think I told you guys a week or so ago, however, that Trevor and I are trying to cut costs and not go out as much.
About a month ago… it was Friday night and Trevor and I had decided to stay in, but it was Friday niiiight… so my body knew it was time for some nachos.
I raided the pantry, but to no avail. There were no tortilla chips! What to do. What to do…
Ahhh, yes! Kettle. Brand. Chips. tooooo the rescue!
We had a few bags in the pantry, so I thought…why not?
Honestly. I’m not sure if I’ll ever go back to regular tortilla chips.
Kettle chips are crunchier, more scoop-able, and I absolutely love that you can mix and match flavors to really make your nachos unique! Today, we chose jalapeno and sea salt, because they’re our absolute favorite, but we’ve also made kettle chip chicken nachos with the pepperoncini, vinegar, and BBQ kettle chips and let’s just say…they’re all yum.
If it’s even possible to love these nachos more, just wait, because it gets better.
These kettle chip chicken nachos take 5 minutes from start –> finish. Seriously. 5 minutes.
Chips –> cheese –> chicken, black beans, corn, chiles, jalapenos –> cheese –> broil for 90 SECONDS (!!) –> add additional toppings (Trevor’s fav is avocado) –> devour.
What more could you ever want…ever?
I know! Happy Friday and cheers to these super cheesy, full of flavor, crunchy, perfect kettle chip chicken nachos!
PS – Don’t forget the margarita! It is Friday after all. 😉
