I love BuzzFeed video recipes. If you haven’t seen any of these videos come across your favorite social media platform, check them out here: BuzzFeed Food – YouTube. There is not a day that goes by where I don’t see a new video recipe on Instagram or Facebook that piques my interest. Here is the latest recipe I tried…
BBQ Chicken Nachos
- 2 chicken breasts
- 3/4 cup barbecue sauce
- 1 bag of tortilla chips
- 2 cups shredded cheese blend
- 1/2 red onion, diced
- 1 tomato, diced
- 8 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
- 2 tbsp cilantro, chopped
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 1 avocado, diced
Place the chicken breast in a slow cooker with the barbecue sauce. Turn the slow cooker on low and let the chicken cook all day (~8 hours) or until cooked through. When the chicken is done, shred it into smaller pieces with two forks. Preheat the oven to 350 F. Cook 8 pieces of bacon in a skillet, set aside and let cool. Once the bacon is cool, crumble it into small pieces. Place a layer of tortilla chips in an oven-safe skillet or dish. Top the chips with about half of the shredded cheese, onion, tomato, and bacon. Add another layer of chips, cheese, onion, tomato, and bacon. Place in the oven and bake for 15-20 min. Remove from the oven and top with the diced avocado, sour cream, and chopped cilantro.
We changed a few things from the original video recipe – it shows the chicken being chopped and cooked in the skillet, but we thought the shredded chicken would work better. We also used cilantro instead of parsley.
BBQ Chicken Nachos: Tara Tested, Tara Approved! Trying these new video recipes has started to become a hobby of mine (in moderation of course, as they aren’t always the healthiest). It’s entertaining to see if the recipe is as easy to make as it looks in the video. With this one I think we made it #betterthanbuzzfeed by using shredded chicken. These nachos were delicious! The barbecue flavor works well with the bacon crumbles and you can’t beat fresh avocado. I encourage you to give them a try for an upcoming potluck or party – I know I’ll be making these again!
