So let’s just get this straight. The east coast is trapped under an enormous blanket (okay, maybe more like a light sheet) of snow, and the SUPER BOWL is this weekend?!?
Yeah. We’re going to need some snacks.
In a snowstorm slash on game day, homemade snack mix is always appreciated.
And chili! We’ve got a few options, chili-wise.
Chicken Chili Stew is a good choice.
Or we could go with Smoky Bacon Turkey Chili. Extra chips please.
And if all else fails? NACHOS. Specifically, BBQ Chicken Nachos. On a sheet pan, because OF COURSE.
I hope you’re all staying warm and cozy today, and full of snacks, to boot.
BBQ Chicken Nachos
From Sheet Pan Suppers
- 1 (14 oz) bag tortilla chips
- 2 cups shredded, cooked chicken
- ¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons bbq sauce
- 1 (15 oz) can black beans, rinsed and drained
- juice of ½ a lime
- ½ cup chopped scallions
- 1 cup chopped tomato
- 1 small jalepeno, thinly sliced
- 4 cups shredded cheese (such as Monterey Jack or sharp cheddar)
- ¼ cup Cotija or feta cheese, crumbled
- ¼ cup fresh cilantro leaves
- 1 avocado, chopped
Heat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a sheet pan with foil or parchment paper.
In a small bowl, mix shredded chicken with the bbq sauce. In another small bowl, mix the black beans with the lime juice.
Layer the tortilla chips, bbq chicken, black beans, scallions, tomato, jalapeno and shredded cheese on the prepared baking sheet, mounding everything in the center.
Bake until cheese is fully melted, 20-25 minutes. Remove nachos from the oven and sprinkle with Cotija, cilantro and fresh avocado.
Serve immediately with extra toppings like salsa, hot sauce, and sour cream.
