My husband wanted to find chips tasting like those made at restaurants. Baking them is the key. These nachos are his claim to fame as a cook and they're delicious! I love them as a quick appetizer or late night snack! Serve with sliced jalapenos and your favorite hot sauce.

Ingredients

  • 1 (8 ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast half

  • 1 (14.25 ounce) can refried beans

  • 8 ounces corn tortilla chips

  • 1 ½ cups grated pepper Jack cheese

  • ¼ cup chopped green onions

  • ½ cup sour cream

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x9 inch baking dish.

  2. Place the chicken on a microwave-safe plate, cover with a paper towel, and place in a microwave oven. Cook on high power until the chicken is no longer pink and cooked through, about 10 minutes. Cool, and use a knife to shred the chicken. Set aside.

  3. Place the refried beans in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir until thoroughly heated.

  4. Layer half the chips, 1/2 cup cheese, and green onions on the bottom of prepared baking dish. Spoon the refried beans over the chip mixture. Sprinkle with another 1/2 cup cheese, and spread with the sour cream. Arrange the shredded chicken over the sour cream layer. Top with the remaining chips and 1/2 cup cheese.

  5. Bake in preheated oven until the cheese melts throughout, 15 to 18 minutes.
