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.
