Don't believe these are the world's greatest chicken nachos?  Try them.  A spicy picadillo mixture, using chicken instead of the traditional beef, gives this nacho recipe a special zip.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 450°.

Step 2

To prepare chicken picadillo, heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add ground chicken, cumin, oregano, salt, and jalapeños; cook until chicken is browned, stirring to crumble. Stir in flour and chili powder; cook 1 minute. Add raisins, vinegar, sugar, and tomatoes; cook 3 minutes, stirring frequently. Add beans; cook until thoroughly heated.

Step 3

To prepare nachos, arrange chips on a large baking sheet. Spoon chicken picadillo and salsa evenly over chips; sprinkle with cheese. Bake at 450° for 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.
