These hearty, dude-pleasing nachos are bursting with flavor. The combination of the crunchy tortilla chips with the spicy buffalo chicken and the cool blue cheese dressing make the perfect accompaniment to a frosty cold beverage (or two!) and are great any time of day. The recipe serves 4, but sharing is optional!

I recently made this dish and oh my goodness was it a winner with the whole family including my neighbors. I did make changes only because my family is not too fond of blue cheese so I substituted the dressing with ranch since when we eat chicken wings we eat them with ranch. These were such a hit that I made them the very next day and will be making them as an appetizer for Super Bowl. I will be making tons!!!!!! Everyone should at least try this recipe out if you love chicken wings and nachos you will definitely love this recipe!!!! Thank you for sharing this deliciousness with all of us I will definitely continue making these for the whole family and friends. Read More

WOW this was such a unique take on nacho's...this coming from someone who loves everything "buffalo"! I did not use the bacon or the blue cheese dressing Instead I used ranch dressing with gorgonzola crumbles. Read More

I made this recipe EXACTLY as written. I like many others feel it is unfair to judge a recipe based on YOUR version of it. I would give this five stars but DH gave it a big thumbs down. And I had heartburn (which I thought was totally worth it). I probably won't make this recipe again because hubby didn't like it but seriously I could probably eat it a couple of times per month!

These were so awesome, we did not even berate ourselves for the billion calories we consumed. Totally worth it. Better than any nachos we have eaten in restaurants. Read More

Was very spicy loved it. Chips got a bit soggy though may go with less tomato next time. Substituted black olives for green and red peppers. Read More

Bacon made it way too salty and wiped out protein flavor would eliminate it. Instead of blue cheese drizzle at end would do sour cream. Read More
