Copycat Fiesta Chicken Nachos

The week after Christmas we took a little vacation to Las Vegas – it was fun to get away with our family, play lots and lots of pickleball, and eat out to our hearts content. We ate at one restaurant called Nacho Daddy that was my nacho-loving-pregnant-heart’s dream come TRUE! This recipe is a take on their Fiesta Nachos, and it was a fast favorite at our house!

We started with a layer of blue and gold corn tortilla chips, then topped them with sautéed onions, refried beans, grilled chicken, and Mexican blend cheese.

Then I added a second layer of chips, onions, beans, chicken, and cheese, and melted them to perfection. Before serving, I topped them with pico de gallo, drizzled sour cream, guacamole, and cilantro.
