Barbeque Chicken Nachos


Barbeque Chicken Nachos

Do you remember when I made Chicken Fajita Pizza using Kraft Recipe Makers? Well I am back to share another fun recipe using a new Kraft Recipe Makers product. This time I am using the Hickory Barbeque Beef, and totally mixing things up! Nachos are always a hit – doesn’t really matter who you are. Combine that with tangy barbeque sauce, and you have a non-traditional snack or dinner everyone will love.

Barbeque Chicken Nachos

Kraft Recipe Makers is a new product that packages two complementary sauces together, so you can create a quick and easy meal the whole family will enjoy. The sauces create layers of flavor, that you can’t always get in a quick weeknight dish. All you have to do is add the fresh ingredients (protein, grains, and veggies). The box comes with three recipes ideas for you, or you can create your own. There are nine varieties to pick from, so there is sure to be something for everyone.

Barbeque Chicken Nachos

To show you just how easy it is to use Kraft Recipe Makers I made a little video for you! This is my first time shooting a video, so be nice :)

Barbeque chicken nachos are perfect for a game day party, a weeknight dinner, or an afternoon snack. The chicken could be cooked in the crockpot, so all you have to do is assemble when you get home from a busy day. A beef roast would also be a great option for these nachos.

Yields 4

Tangy hickory barbeque sauce is a great twist for nachos

  1. Place 2 pounds of chicken into a slow cooker. Top with the bottle of Brown Sugar & Cider Vinegar Simmer Sauce. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours, or high for about 4. Once cooked, shred the chicken.
  2. To assemble the nachos, place a layer of tortilla chips on a microwave safe plate or a baking sheet. Top with a layer of cheese, red onion, chicken, and tomatoes.

  3. Serve garnished with cilantro and jalapeno slices. Guacamole and sour cream are great for dipping.


Mix the leftover chicken with the leftover Sweet Hickory Bbq Finishing Sauce for quick BBQ chicken sandwiches. You could also use a beef roast in place of the chicken.

  39. Claudia Davis says:

    I think anything with an asian flavor (asian fish tacos box) to it works so well with salmon. I would marinade the salmon for about an hour in the fridge (not longer because then it starts to actually cook) and place it on the grill for some smokey flavor. I would add some sauteed julienne veggies (yellow, green and red bell peppers as well as carrots and some mushrooms) to soba noodles as a side dish for the meal adding some of the marinade to the noodles to complement the fish.

  40. I’d use it in a casserole. :)

  41. Cindy Merrill says:
