jerk chicken nachos

these are perfect for game day…and tonight is the big game!!
although i will not be indulging in these tonight you can! 
this is one of my favorite recipes for nachos and it is from the pampered chef. 


  • 6 cups tortilla chips
  • 3 cups shredded cooked chicken
  • 2 cups (8 oz) shredded cheddar or monterey jack
  • 2 tablespoons jamaican jerk rub ( i use pampered chefs version) 
  • 1 small yellow or red bell pepper
  • 1 lime
  • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro
  • 1/4 cup sour cream mixed with 1 tsp additional Jamaican jerk rub


  • 1. preheat oven to 425 degrees 
  • 2.
    in bowl, combine chicken, cheese and 1 tablespoon jerk rub; mix gently. sprinkle chicken mixture over tortilla chips. bake 5-7 minutes or until cheese is melted.
  • 3.
    dice the bell pepper. cut lime in half crosswise and juice half of the lime; add remaining jerk rub and bell pepper to the lime juice and mix well/ 
  • 4.
    snip cilantro. slice remaining half of the lime.
  • 5.
    spoon bell pepper mixture over nachos; sprinkle evenly with cilantro. take the remaining 1/4 cup sour cream and mix with the jerk seasoning. i then used a plastic storage bag cut the corner of it and squeezed the sour cream onto the nachos through the bag…you could also use any other pastry decorating tool or dollop it on.

    go bucks…pluck those ducks!!
