After a local restaurant took their buffalo nachos off the menu for good, I decided to recreate their buffalo nacho recipe my way. I also needed to use up a rotisserie chicken which took out an extra step of work of making these nachos. These crispy and loaded buffalo nachos are sure to please everyone.

Easy-ish Entertaining Tips

If you are planning to serve these for a party, celebration, or game day, prepping a few things in advance will make assembly so much easier.

  1. Make the buffalo chicken a day or two before: Shred the chicken, and add your hot sauce, and store it in an air-tight container.

  2. Chop your toppings ahead of time: Get your onion, tomato, and jalapeños diced up to three days before you plan on making the nachos. Store these toppings in air-tight containers.

  3. Skip shredding your own cheese and use pre-shredded cheese.

Fun Fact: Nachos are known for their crunchy tortilla chips, melted cheese, and all the toppings you want to load on. This Tex-Mex dish originated in northern Mexico, near the Texas border. They are served as a snack, appetizer, or even in some cases as your meal.

Toppings for nachos span from simple to extravagant and no matter what your dietary need or personal preference, there is a nacho out there just for you!
