Here’s another recipe that uses a rotisserie chicken for a super easy sheet pan favorite. Making your own nachos at home also guarantees that all the ingredients will be piled evenly over every chip which means lots of chicken, cheese, salsa, avocado, jalapeños, radishes, and, well, more cheese in every bite!
Perfect for game nights or casual gatherings, this recipe is a crowd pleaser that strikes the right balance between cheesy indulgence and savory goodness. Feel free to also add black beans, or get crazy and swap the avocado for some guacamole or spicy avocado creme sauce.
