Buffalo Pepper Jack Nachos

Buffalo Pepper Jack Nachos

You must know by now that I love all things spicy, and especially all things buffalo!  The other day I made these delicious Buffalo Pepper Jack Nachos.  They were awesome, of course, so much so that I’ve already made a second version of the buffalo nachos (to be posted later….stay tuned!)

Anyway, these are great for a fast snack, a full meal, or a party platter.  I’ll definitely be making it a lot during the football season!  And since our teen son loves it, I plan on making it a regular menu item for after school snacks and fast weeknight dinners!

Buffalo Pepper Jack Nachos

Buffalo Pepper Jack Nachos


3 or 4 handfuls Tortilla Chips (enough to cover a medium sized baking sheet)

8 oz Pepper Jack Cheese slices

1 cup - 1 1/2 cups chicken (cooked and shredded)

1/2 cup buffalo sauce

Ranch or Bleu Cheese Dressing


Boil 2 or 3 skinless, boneless chicken breasts, until cooked through. Tear cooked chicken into shreds. (You should have 1 to 1 1/2 cups) Alternatively you can use canned white chunk chicken. Just drain the broth from the chicken and use a fork to break chunks into shreds.

Place chicken in a bowl and pour sauce over chicken. Stir to make sure chicken is well coated.

Place tortilla chips on a medium to large sized baking sheet. Cut each slice of cheese in half or into fourths. Cover pan of chips with cheese slices. Make sure cheese is evenly distributed. Pour chicken mixture over chips.

Turn your oven on broil. Cook for about 5 minutes or until cheese is melted and chicken and chips are hot.

Remove from oven. Cover nachos with ranch or bleu cheese dressing. Use a spatula to serve.


Here's a tip: If you're a mom on the go, boil and shred your chicken at the beginning of the week and then refrigerate. Whenever you need a fast snack or meal option, just pull out your chicken, toss it in some sauce, and get you'll have nachos in 5 minutes!
