BBQ Chicken Nachos are tortilla chips covered in shredded chicken, BBQ sauce and nacho cheese.

The Super Bowl is this Sunday and everyone, well most everyone, is trying to find the perfect appetizers to serve. If you’re still undecided, you should give these nachos a whirl. They are unbelievably good.

One of my Facebook friends asked me a while back, what kind of cheese sauce I would use on BBQ Nachos? My first thought was, ‘BBQ Nachos?’.. That sounds like the yummiest thing in the world!’ And then my next thought was… ‘Google’.

   I typed in ‘BBQ Nachos’ and the first recipe that pulled up was Bobby Flay’s. That man is a genius. I scoped out his recipe and loved everything about it. The sauce sounded amazing, so I responded back to her question on Facebook, and gave her the link to Bobby’s recipe.

When I was done, I quickly printed the recipe off for myself, and knew I would be making them ASAP. I made a few changes to the original recipe, and we totally loved the outcome. We were scarfing these down like animals! YUM!

  1. I may have become a familiar face as I continue to test out your delicious recipes, and I have added this one to my completed list. It was satisfying, and I think making the cheese sauce as recommended above is great for parties – but as I made it for my small family, next time I will probably just use jarred cheese with tomato /green chillies (Rotel).

    The BBQ sauce and cheese was a delicious surprise. As you usual, I love your blog and am a dedicated follower. Thanks for sharing this one too!

  2. I usually just put a bit of cheese on my nachos, this recipe takes nachos to a whole new level… : )

    Many thanks for a great idea
