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!
