~*Semi Homemade Simple Chicken Nachos*~

No body i know can resist a good ole heaping plate full of Nachos!
Now ive noticed that nachos done in the states are done so many different ways! But i havent come across a style like the way we do em back home in Australia!
Now these are real simple and u can add whatever u like to the tp of your baked Nachos!
Pictured here in the blog is chicken but if u have hamburger/mince thats fine too (pulled pork shredded beef what ever u fancy really!)
I took a rotisserie chicken pulled that bad boy to bits and shredded it put it to the side while i had the home made stuff simmering in the skillet!
~What You Need For Your Meat~
Meat of your choice cooked and pulled/shredded
Fresh Tomatoes/Canned (whatever u have on hand)
Minced Garlic
Tacco Mix ( i use home made mix)
Chicken Broth/Stock
Finely Diced Onion
~What to Do~
Dice and chop up all your ingredients nice and finely have our electric skillet warming up with a lil oil, when hot enough toss your onions and garlic in, when the onions are sauteed toss in your matoes i used the last of my home grown ones for these nachos and boy was it worth it! Toss in your stock as well so they dont stick and burn to the pan make sure u have enough liquid to support the seasoning your about to add! Make sure these ingredients arent dry keep adding broth/stock if need be :)
When its all cooked down nicely mix in your meat turn the heat down and let it all simmer in harmony!
Now preheat your oven i usually have ours nice and hot when im doing Nachos! So lets say about 390ish get your casserole dish/dishes now do a thin layer each time you do this :)
Layer 1 = Tortilla Chips
Layer 2 = Shredded Cheese
Layer 3 = Chicken Mix
Now keep layering your casserole dish until your last layer ends with Cheese! You can add beans to your meat mix as well if you like i didnt not this time around!
When done toss the dish into the oven and let it all get nice and melty!
This may sound complicated but its soooooo SIMPLE! And its a great way to use up left overs as well :) I dont usually add sour cream as my boys like and dislike at the same time LOL
So Add it where u like our slop a dople on top when you have your serving on your plate!

(This version pictured here in the Blog was done on a plate and in the microwave as a simple after school/work snack)
