Macho Chicken Nachos

I made this dish when i fancied something a bit different to the usual Nachos. Using flour Tortillas instead of the shop bought nachos turned out to work really well.

You need:

4 or 5 Flour Tortillas - cut them into large triangles
1 Chicken Breast - cut into 2cm chunks
1 Red Pepper - thinly sliced
2 tablespoons Fajita seasoning mix
200g Mature or Extra Mature Cheddar - grated
1/2 Jar Jalapeno Peppers
1 tablespoon Olive oil
Sour Cream/Guacamole/Salsa to taste

Pre-heat oven to 180c

Once you have cut your Tortillas into large triangles (make them slightly bigger than the shop bought nachos), heat a large frying pan over a medium heat. Add the Tortilla triangles a few at a time and cook for 30 seconds each side. Set aside.

Now add the oil to the pan followed by the chicken. Add the Fajita Seasoning mix, and cook for about 5 minutes, stirring well until the chicken is browned and cooked through.

In a large glass or oven proof baking dish, place a layer of the tortillas, followed by half the chicken spread evenly on top. Evenly spread half the Jalapeno peppers on top, and then sprinkle over half the cheese. Repeat with another layer of Tortilla/Chicken/Pepper/Cheese

Bake in a pre-heated oven for approx 5 mins until the cheese is melted. Serve hot with Salsa/Guacamole/Sour Cream to taste.

Feeds 2 - or 1 hungry person!
