Nachos are my ultimate comfort food. I eat them at least once a week and it’s easy to fall into a rut with my usual combination (blue corn chips, cheese, jalapenos, tomatoes, and onions). I like to make sure I try something new at least once a month. Thus, these buffalo chicken nachos with blue cheese crumble were born.

Nachos are a great appetizer or snack option. They’re also a fun way to get kids involved in meal prep. The key to making them taste amazing is using high-quality ingredients. That’s why we created this recipe featuring crispy tortilla chips, creamy blue cheese dressing, and juicy buffalo chicken.

This recipe is perfect for parties because it’s super simple to prepare and everyone loves it!

Buffalo Chicken Nachos with Blue Cheese Crumble

I have to admit that I was skeptical about the addition of blue cheese to these nachos. I actually quite like blue cheese, but when it comes to nachos, I tend to stick to the usual suspects: jalapeno jack, mozzarella, cheddar, or a good tex mex blend. I was worried that I would mess with the integrity of the nachos by adding such a strong taste but took a deep breath and decided to take a bite.

It was glorious! If you’re a bit hesitant, I ask you to venture out of your culinary comfort zone and give it a try. You may just thank me.

Buffalo Chicken Nachos Recipe:

1/2 bag tortilla chips
1 cooked chicken breast, shredded
1/2 cup Frank’s Red Hot sauce (original or extra spicy)
1 cup jalepeno jack cheese, shredded
2 green onions, sliced
1 jalepeno, sliced
1 oz. blue cheese, crumbled

Cook the chicken breast. You can either bake it in the oven or poach it. When I made this, I poached 5 chicken breasts so that I could pre-make packets of buffalo chicken and freeze them in medium resealable bags. I can then pull them out the next time I want to make buffalo chicken nachos or for when I want to make buffalo chicken quesadillas. When the chicken breast is cooked, shred it. In a bowl, mix the shredded chicken and Frank’s Red Hot sauce.

Lay tortilla chips out on a cookie sheet or round oven-safe platter. Top with the jalepeno jack cheese, buffalo chicken, sliced green onions, and jalapeno slices. If you are using a smaller platter rather than a cookie sheet, you will need to repeat this in layers.

Bake in a 350° oven for 5-10 minutes, until cheese, is melted. Top with blue cheese crumbles.
