I first made this for a camping trip because it's an easy make ahead dish and freezes well. It was HUGE success! Everyone loved it. The second time I doubled it for a group of people and again it got rave reviews. There were no left overs. I put avocado, olives, green onion, tomatoes, cilantro, cheese and sour cream in bowls to customize the nachos. I made Trader Joe's Chimichurri rice as a side (both camping and for the crowd) some people added into their bowls. Great combination!
Chicken Enchilada Nacho Bowls
At home, prepare the chicken mixture and freeze in a resealable plastic bag. In camp, just reheat on a camp stove. And, of course, you can use Fritos instead of tortilla chips in the recipe.
