This delicious and easy to prepare recipe is sure to be a big hit! Hearty enough for a meal. The key is the meat filling -- it also makes a great filling for tacos and quesadillas. This recipe can be modified to meet your own taste. I recommend serving with sour cream and guacamole. Be creative!

I made this as listed, and it was very good. I think making the changes other reviewers suggested will make it a 5 star dish. I will add taco seasoning to the chicken next time, as it could use a little more kick. I also like the idea of adding black beans and corn to the mixture, to make it a little more substantial and get some extra veggies into my kids at the same time. Heating the chips first for 5 minutes would help keep them crisp too.

This recipe is awesome!!!! My husband loved it...so did the kids! I used Kirkland Signature Premium Chunk (Costco brand)canned Chicken Breast (12.5oz can) It really worked out well. I also used shredded cheddar and mozzerella cheese, cause that's what I had in the house! Next time I will try adding refried beans, black olives, and jalapeno peppers to add a little spice! I already have my family hounding me to make it again! Very easy to make. Recommend you try this one first!

Mmmmmmm, nachos are the best! I used ground turkey in this recipe along with a can of black beans, cumin, jalapeno peppers and garlic and onion powders. In addition to the shredded cheeses I decided to go all the way and also make a cheese sauce using cheddar and pepper jack. I don't like soggy nachos, so I baked the chips by themselves to really crisp them up and then put the meat mixture on top added the cheese and served. This is the FIRST time I've ever seen hubby eat nachos. Delicious Laura!
