When it comes to easy & delicious dinners, it really doesn’t get any better than this. These Ultimate Loaded Nachos are perfect for a party, a quick weeknight meal or even a midnight snack (yes, I’m pretty famous for those). Made with crunchy tortilla chips, Tyson® Any’tizers® Chicken Fries, melted cheese & other yummy toppings, and then baked until the cheese is golden brown & bubbly, this dish is truly a delight for the taste buds!
I can’t believe the summer is already halfway over. With the new school year right around the corner, the right routine makes a big difference! The after-school period is always pretty busy, so when I can find a quick, delicious meal for dinner, that’s a win in my book! These Ultimate Loaded Nachos come together after only about 10 minutes of prep time and 10 minutes of bake time. Plus, is there anything more fun to eat than loaded nachos?! I think not!
These are not your typical nachos. Made with Tyson Any’tizers Chicken Fries, these loaded nachos are the perfect all-in-one meal solution because the chicken fries are packed with protein. I found them in the frozen section of Shop Rite near all the Tyson chicken products.
Another awesome thing I love about this meal is that you can customize it to your liking. Don’t love cilantro? Leave it out. Not a fan of avocado? Skip it. Add what you like and omit what you don’t. It’s such a flexible recipe that will really taste amazing, regardless of how you personalize it.
Here are some toppings I like to include:
Tyson Any’tizers Chicken Fries
Pico de gallo
To prepare this meal, simply spread out a single layer of tortilla chips on a baking pan.
Prepare the chicken fries according to the package directions.
Top with half of the shredded cheese and your desired toppings.
Finally, top with the remaining cheese and bake at 375 degrees Fahrenheit. I like to bake it for about 10 minutes, until the cheese is melted and slightly bubbly.
For a final extra touch, add sour cream to a small plastic bag, cut a small hole and pipe it on back and forth. Sprinkle some cilantro on top.
Each bite is so full of delicious flavor. I love that the Tyson Any’tizers Chicken Fries are made with chicken that’s raised with no antibiotics ever. That’s a food I can feel good about feeding to my family!
By the way, tortilla chips can burn easily so you definitely want to keep an eye on this dish in the oven. If it starts to brown, take it out right away. I know this meal will be one we turn to on many occasions this upcoming school year.
With a new schedule, new teachers and a new routine, the back-to-school season can be stressful enough. Keep meal time simple with this delicious, easy-to-prepare dinner solution. Purchase Tyson Any’tizers Chicken Fries products at Shop Rite stores and experience the crave-worthy flavor for yourself. Also, keep an eye out for Tyson® Chicken Nuggets and Tyson® Chicken Strips – both are awesome meal solutions for the busy school week. In general, Tyson products provide a convenient and affordable option as we enter a new school year.
I’ve made these nachos quite a few times already. Here are a few tips I’ve learned along the way:
1. For the avocado, cut right before serving & toss in some lime juice to minimize browning.
2, To create a beautiful drizzle of sour cream, add to a small zippered plastic bag, cut a small hole in the corner and pipe it on back & forth. For a thinner drizzle like I did, cut the smallest hole possible.
3. To create a mouth-watering final dish, bake it until the cheese is melted and bubbly- slightly past the point where the cheese is melted but before the point where the cheese is burned. The melted cheese will not only help to hold the toppings together on the tortilla chips, but it will also add a delicious flavor to the final dish.
