Layered Baked Louisiana Style Chicken Nachos

layered baked Louisiana style chicken nachos

Remember National Nachos Day? Remember those drool-worthy pics of nachos I put up? Remember me telling everyone and anyone that would listen about how much I wanted nachos thereafter?

Well, those layered baked buffalo chicken nachos were on my mind all weekend long and for the most part of the week! I finally had the chance to “assemble” them during the week, and it was incredibly yummy! It was very simple, extremely quick, and a boyfriend-approved dish! :)

Check out my instructables on how to assemble your very own casserole sized dish of buffalo chicken nachos!

INGREDIENTS: tortilla chips, Louisiana style hot sauce, chicken, scallions, cheese, avocado

Some pre-assembling requirements…. :)

wash and pat dry the scallions

chop scallions


cut in half and remove pit

chop into cubes

pre-cooked chicken

shred the chicken using two forks

Louisiana style hot sauce (was convinced by my boyfriend to try this), or any buffalo wing sauce wing do

coat the chicken with however much sauce you desire (rule of thumb, more=spicy, lots=insane spicy!)

Now that everything’s ready, assembling is the fun part! Feel free to put it together in any fashion of your choosing…

STEP 1: layer baking dish with tortilla chips

STEP 2: add a layer of the shredded chicken mixture

STEP 3: sprinkle a layer of cheese

STEP 4: drizzle a little more hot sauce (optional)

STEP 6: add a layer of the avocado and scallions. repeat. garnish with more avocado and scallions

Bake in a 450° oven for 10 minutes or until it’s nice and golden brown.

done :)

just look at all that goodness!

Clearly, you can tell that I made more than enough to feed a party of ten, not a couple of two :)

Hope you all enjoy and get to try this out!

xoxo, kat

ps. Sorry, only guesstimates! It’s not fun if there are exact measurements…Feel free to add/subtract ingredients! I want to add bacon to this next time! :)
