Chicken-Chipotle Nachos with Crema
Chicken-Chipotle Nachos with Crema Recipe The nacho topping of shredded chicken, chopped onions, and other bold, flavorful ingredients doubles as a filling for tacos or burritos. Make the topping up to 2 days ahead so that when you're ready to serve this snack, only a little prep work is required.
Corn Bread Bites
Recipe Bite-size cornbread muffins make hearty little snacks. Or you can serve them with chili or soup. For more heat, add chopped jalapeño peppers or double the hot sauce.
