8 servings (serving size: 5 nachos)

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.

Chef's Notes

Serve with chopped cilantro, shredded lettuce, sliced radish, and low-fat sour cream.

Family loved it though my daughter said they weren't the "world's greatest" but they were definitely good.  I did make some guacamole to go with some light sour cream on the side with the salsa.  Would make again.

Loved this! My other half devoured it! I did add a couple cloves of garlic though and some diced onions to the sauce. It was really yummy!

I make it without the rasins. I put out the meat mixture and let people make their own plates. Always gets eaten quickly.

We loved these! Very Easy. I took the advice from the previous review and had everything laid out and ready to go, as it went fast. I used only half the sugar and sub. beans w black beans. I used Tostitos whole wheat chips (they're very crispy). Served for lunch.
