Chicken Nachos with Spicy Tomato Sauce

Chicken Nachos with Spicy Tomato Sauce

Posted 2017-04-01 by finyfollow

I love nachos, and generally have them without any meat.

However, this time I had some leftover chicken, so shredded this and used it with the nachos, which I smothered in cheese and a tangy, home made tomato sauce, and topped it with guacamole and a dob of sour cream.

If you do not have any cooked chicken you can either cook some breasts/thighs, or buy cooked, shredded chicken in most supermarkets.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 25 minutes
Serves: 2 - 3

Ingredients
1½ cups cooked chicken, chopped or shredded
150 g red kidney beans, rinsed and drained (more is optional)
½ medium green capsicum, chopped
100 g corn chips
130 g cheese, grated
Pinch paprika

For the spicy sauce
1 medium onion or shallot
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 tsp sambal oelek, or to taste
1 can crushed tomatoes
½ tsp sugar
1½ tsp ground cumin

For the guacamole
1 medium avocado
1 tbsp lime juice
1 clove garlic, crushed
2 tbsp sour cream

Method
For the spicy sauce
  • Heat a bit of oil in a pan, and add the onion, garlic and sambal oelek.

  • Cook, stirring until the onion is soft - about 6 minutes.

  • Add the undrained tomatoes, sugar and cumin.

  • Simmer for about 10 minutes or until the mixture thickens.


  • For the nachos
  • Preheat the oven to about 180°/160° fan forced, and spray a large ovenproof dish.

  • Mix the chicken pieces, kidney beans, green capsicum pieces and half the spicy sauce.


  • Place the corn chips in the ovenproof dish.

  • Add a bit of the cheese.

  • Top with the chicken mixture.

  • Add the remaining spicy sauce.


  • Add the rest of the grated cheese and bake for about 10 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and starting to go golden.

  • For the guacamole
    Mash the avocado, lime juice and garlic until it is smooth - I did this by hand but you could use a blender (I am too lazy to wash up!).

  • Add the sour cream and mix again, until it is combined.

  • Serve topped with the guacamole and a dob of sour cream (optional).


  • Can be heated up in the oven the next day, or of course, for vegetarians, just omit the chicken.
