Dom’s Chicken Nachos for Rita Welborne

 

Last night I had the pleasure of serving the very talented vocalist, Rita Welborne, (who’s website I will be adding to this when I have a chance to edit this) who found herself particularly enamored with my chicken nachos; & since flattery will get you everywhere with me I’m typing out this quick & fairly simple recipe as promised. This dish will comfortably serve 2.

Ingredients:

Roughly 40 tortilla chips (either fresh fried or packaged)

6 ounces of diced chicken

½ of a green pepper diced

½ onion diced

1 cup of jarred salsa (or homemade)

vegetable oil for frying

paprika

garlic powder

onion powder

old bay seasoning

a splash of Worcestershire sauce

black pepper

1 cup sharp cheddar cheese

¼ head of iceberg lettuce

¼ cup sour cream

1/3 cup sliced canned jalapeños

Asumming that the tortilla chips are done; take a large skillet at medium high heat with a lid and toss in some vegetable oil and the diced chicken, onions and peppers.

Toss in the seasonings to taste, (basically a few vigorous shakes of each & a hefty squirt of Worcestershire and roughly 3 tablespoons of the canned jalapeño juice), give it a good stir and place the lid on for a minute or 2.

When the chicken appears to be done; add ½ cup of the salsa, stir & replace the lid for a minute.

Take a microwave safe dish and put a shallow layer of the chips and roughly 1/3 the cheese, then the same proportion of the chicken mixture.

Repeat the aforementioned task until you use all the chips, cheese & salsa, then put in the microwave for roughly 1 minute 40 seconds.

When the cheese is melted, cover with an even layer of finely shredded lettuce and scatter the periphery of the dish with jalapeños.

Simple as that you serve as mentioned with a couple of sou flee cups on the side of salsa and sour cream respectively.
