Jerk Chicken Nachos

This dish was first tried at a Pampered Chef party that my friend Melissa and I hosted - which was a huge success! These nachos have been a favorite ever since! Please try these and don't forget to check out the salsa and guacamole recipes on my blog too to go along with this meal if you haven't already :) 

Jerk Chicken Nachos
Modified from The Pampered Chef 

 6 cups (1.5 L) LIME tortilla chips 
1 TBSP olive oil 
3 cups (750 mL)  diced or shredded cooked chicken 
 8 oz (250 g) shredded marble cheese (2 cups/500 mL) 
 2 tbsp (30 mL) Jamaican Jerk Spice Rub (Pampered Chef), divided 
 1 small yellow or red bell pepper or combination 
1 small tomato  
1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
1 lime 
 2 tbsp (30 mL) snipped fresh cilantro 
 1/4 cup (50 mL) sour cream


Cook cubed chicken in frying pan with about 1 TBSP  of olive oil. 
Add 1 TBSP jerk chicken spice while cooking.
Lay out lime tortilla chips on a cookie sheet.
Once chicken is cooked, take a slap-chop like device and chop the chicken into small 
In a medium sized bowl, mix chicken and cheese together well.

Depending on the size of your cookie sheet - you may want to do one single layer of 
toppings or double it up.


Sprinkle chicken/cheese mix over the tortilla chips.  
Next, sprinkle chopped fresh cilantro, red pepper, tomato, and red onion.
Squeeze the juice from a lime over the nachos.

Bake in oven @ 350 for approximately 10 minutes until cheese is melted.

For serving - take 1 cup of sour cream and mix with remaining 1 TSBP of jerk chicken spice.
This is amazing dipping sauce!
If you want, you can also serve with regular sour cream, salsa, and guacamole.

I promise you will not be disappointed! Serve with your favorite beverage :)
