A simple Grilled Chicken Nachos recipe!

Recipe Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 2 tablespoon Lime Juice
  • 2 cloves Garlic, minced
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon Chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon Black Pepper
  • 1 1/2 pounds Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • 1 small Red Onion
  • 2 tablespoon Red Bell Pepper, Chopped
  • 1 can Pinto Beans, Low Sodium
  • 1/2 tablespoon Red Wine Vinegar
  • 1/2 tablespoon Dried Oregano
  • 1 bag Tortilla Chips, 13 ounce restaurant-style bag
  • 2 cups Sharp Cheddar Cheese
  • 2 cups Monterey Jack Cheese
  • 1 medium Tomato, chopped
  • 1/2 cup Sour Cream
  • 1/2 cup Cilantro


1. In a small bowl whisk together 2 tbls. olive oil, the lime juice, garlic, chili powder, 1/2 tsp. salt and pepper. Place the chicken in a large ziplock bag and pour marinade over. Toss to coat and refrigerate at least 30 minutes. Heat a lightly oiled grill or grill pan over medium-high heat. Grill the chicken turning once until cooked through, about 4 to 5 minutes per side. Allow to cool, then cut chicken in 1/2-inch cubes. 2. In a large skillet over medium heat, heat the olive oil. Add the onion and cook until softened, 4 to 5 minutes. Add the garlic and bell pepper and cook, stirring, until softened, 4 to 5 minutes more. Stir in the chili powder and cook until fragrant, 1 minute more. Remove from heat. To the bowl of a food processor, add the beans, vinegar, oregano, 1/2 tsp. salt, pepper, and 1/4 cup water and pulse to combine. Add the onion mixture and pulse to combine. If necessary, add more water 1 tablespoon at a time and process until smooth. Taste and adjust seasoning. 3. Preheat oven to 400°. Add a small dollop of bean dip to the center of each chip (about 1/4 teaspoon per chip) and divide chips among 2 rimmed baking sheets. Sprinkle evenly with cheeses. Bake until cheese is bubbling and melted and the edges of chips are just starting to brown, 8 to 10 minutes. Top with tomato, onion, sour cream, grilled chicken, and cilantro. Serve immediately.
