Chicken Nachos with Homemade Salsa

I made chicken nachos yesterday for my guys to eat while they watched baseball.  I made homemade salsa earlier in the day with The Blog Tech and that was when I got the idea for the nachos.
 Fresh salsa is a snap to make.

 We grilled the tomatoes and peppers first to give it a nice smokey flavor.


 Lots of salsa in a short period of time.

 For the nachos, I browned some ground chicken and seasoned it with S&P, cumin, coriander, garlic and a bit of chili powder.  Then I put down a layer of chips, sprinkled grated colby jack cheese over them and topped them with some of the chicken.  I sprinkled some diced vidalia onions over the top.

 The I added another layer of chips, more chicken, cheese and onions and some sliced black and green olives.

I baked it at 375 degrees for about 25 minutes until all of the cheese had melted.  I sprinkled fresh chopped cilantro on top and served it to the guys with a bowl of salsa. The food was good but we lost the game.

With all the spicy things you and your family love I'm suprised you did not layer on some jalapeno nocho slices!
How old are the boys? I have a 15 yr old who plays baseball- pitcher and some 1st base.
Love reading your blog. Would like to know more about you!

Funny, for me chicken goes with fajitas and nachos with beef, I don't think about mixing them.

I make them pretty much the same way, only no cilantro, and only one layer... and we don't make NEAR as much as you! (laugh) Only two of us here!
Oh who cares! As far as I am concerned you WON! That food was a winner, without a doubt. Go ahead..just ask the guys! :)

Yes those nachos look really super, and home made salsa would have been the prefect partner for them.
These look delicious! I love to make homemade salsa and can it for winter.
