Kickin Buffalo Chicken Nachos

Nachos are great as an appetizer, but what about for dinner.  When my husband and I go out, sometimes we get a couple of appetizers to share for dinner. So when I saw this recipe, I thought why not for dinner.
Eclectic Red Barn: Kickin' Chicken Nachos


The recipe for Kickin' Buffalo Chicken Nacho was in Allrecipes magazine.  I made some changes from that recipe. For one, they had you place the nachos on the baking sheet and then the chicken mixture along with the tomatoes and other vegetables to bake 

Although I thought this would be alright for a large crowd, it was just the two of us and if there were left overs, the nachos would be soggy. 

So I just placed the chicken mixture and cheese without the vegetables to bake and then added all of our toppings afterwards.
Once it was baked, I placed nachos on our plates and then the chicken and cheese on top.

My husband also added Taco sauce to his, but I was content with the Blue Cheese dressing drizzled on top. 

There are so many options for toppings, just choose what you like.
