Life Changing BBQ Nachos

You may read the title of this post and think “Unless there’s a million dollars hidden under all that queso, I’m don’t see how nachos could change my life!” In which case I would have to concede that they aren’t life changing. However, I think nachos that keep me salivating for a whole 24 hours after consumption are pretty life changing. It’s pretty difficult to go about daily tasks when all you can think about are a plate of bbq nachos. Consequently, I’ve told almost every person I’ve spoken to about them!

I have to admit, the idea is not original to me. I frequent and got the craving from this wonderful blog: The Pioneer Woman

The inspiration:

Cowboy Nachos

These Nachos. I craved these nachos. Finally after pacing in the kitchen trying to decide what to eat, I eyed my bag of tortilla chips and it all clicked.

I improvised, though, which was definitely not a bad thing!


  • Tortilla Chips
  • Freshly grated cheese (I used Monterey and Colby Jack)
  • Lloyd’s Shredded BBQ Chicken(This made the dish).
  • Canned diced tomatoes.
  • Sour Cream

I simply layered the first three ingredients twice on an oven safe plate, popped it in the oven at 450 degrees F until properly melted

I then topped it with the diced tomatoes and a generous dollop of sour cream and ate. No, I’m lying to you. I didn’t eat them. I devoured them. With gusto. Much, much, much gusto.

It created a lot for one person so it was my lunch and dinner. It isn’t the healthiest of dishes, but you won’t be able to get it off your mind for days to come.

I’m already trying to find excuses to make it again as soon as possible….
