What’s for a Dinner – Restaurant Style Nachos

I love, love, love nachos!  So as I was hunting down something yummy this week, I’m so glad I remembered these!  These are easy and yummy, and would be a great appetizer along with some grilled garlic chicken this week, or have nachos for dinner (that’s what we’ll be doing this week!)     Here’s what you’ll need . . . 

 2 cloves garlic, crushed

 6 green onions, sliced, white parts and tops separated

  3 tablespoons canola oil
Lou Ana Canola/Vegtable Oil BOGO $3.39, $.75/1 from 6/6/10 SS

 1 cup salsa
Tostitos Salsa on sale $2.50, look for tearpad for FREE salsa when you buy two Tostitos (if you have that tearpad and print two Target coupons this would be a GREAT way to stock up!)

 1/2 (12 ounce) package tortilla chips
Tostitos Tortilla Chips Family size BOGO $4.99, $1/1 Tostitos Target Coupon

 1 shredded, cooked, whole chicken breast  Perdue chicken breast

 1/2 large tomato, diced

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).  In skillet cook garlic, and white parts of green onion in canola oil until tender.  Mix in chicken, salt and pepper and saute until everything is coated with oil; then add salsa.

 Arrange chips in the bottom of a large baking sheet.  Spoon chicken over tortilla chips.  Top with cheese and tomato.  Bake for10 minutes or until cheese has melted.   Top with green onion tops and serve!

  1. I’ve been on PPP for about an hour and am fascinated by the breadth of what you write about. I find it very helpful that you are so exact in your descriptions that even a novice cook would be able to follow your directions and have no questions unanswered……example……put bowl on corn to weigh it down when soaking it prior to grilling it. My only problem is that I can’t get the coupon lingo….. Need a crash course when we visit next. Whatever did we do without computers and iPhones!!!! Remember your first MAC ? Love, Mom

  2. My husband loves to cook and I was looking for something new to try. He made this for supper tonight and it was soooo good! Every bit of it was eaten! Everyone enjoyed it! I wonder though, because we have one of the huge cans of nacho cheese dip, if it would be any good using it instead of the cheddar cheese? What are your thoughts on the change up? Do you think it might be as good if not better???

    • We usually don’t have that kind of cheese dip at our house, but that sounds delicious Tonya! I’m sure you could change it out without any issue. Great idea!
