How To make Nachos Recipe

Just a few simple ingredients to make your own bites. I used Old El Paso Green Enchilada Sauce and Green Chilies.

Add cumin, salt, pepper and garlic salt to your shredded cooked chicken. Add Green Chile Enchilada sauce and green chilies. Give a good stir.

Place your tortilla chips onto a baking sheet.

Fill with chicken mixture, top with cheese and bake at 350 degrees F. for about 12 minutes.

Remove and serve warm. Top with your favorite nacho toppings if desired.
