Very Extra Nachos
Fully loaded in every way. You can either bake both trays of nachos at the same time, or wait and bake the second one after you’re done inhaling the first tray.
Serves 6-8 | Total Time: Less Than 30 Mins
For the Nachos:
- 1 (8-ounce) package Applegate Naturals® Grilled Chicken Breast Strips
- 1½ cups Tomatillo Salsa (see recipe below)
- 12 ounces tortilla chips
- 2 (5-ounce) packages of Applegate Organics® Monterey Jack Cheese
- 1 (15-ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
- 1 (8-ounce) package Applegate Naturals® Sunday Bacon, cooked until crisp and chopped
- ½ cup sour cream
- 1 avocado, pitted, peeled and diced
- ½ cup finely chopped white onions
- ¼ cup finely chopped Pickled Red Onions
- Hot sauce of your choice
- Cilantro leaves, for garnishing
- ½ pound fresh tomatillos
- 2 plump garlic cloves, coarsely chopped
- 1 jalapeño, seeded and coarsely chopped
- ½ cup cilantro leaves
- ½ teaspoon kosher salt
For the Nachos:
- Preheat the oven to 375°F. Lay two rimmed baking sheets on your work surface.
- Shred or chop the chicken strips into small, bite-sized pieces. Place in a bowl with ½ cup of the tomatillo salsa. Toss to coat.
- Divide the tortilla strips evenly between the two baking sheets. Sprinkle 1 package of cheese over each sheet of tortilla strips. Scatter the shredded chicken, black beans and bacon over the cheese and chips, dividing them evenly between the two baking sheets.
- Place the baking sheets in the oven and bake until cheese is melted, 8–10 minutes.
- Remove the nachos from the oven and drop small spoonfuls of the sour cream and remaining tomatillo salsa over the nachos. Scatter the diced avocado, white onions and pickled red onions over the nachos. Drizzle hot sauce over the nachos and garnish with cilantro leaves. Serve at once.
- If necessary, peel any papery husks off the tomatillos and rinse the tomatillos well in warm water.
- Coarsely chop the tomatillos. Place them in a blender along with the garlic, jalapeño, cilantro and salt.
- Blend until smooth.
