Cheesy Chicken Nachos for H-E-B Meal Maker Challenge

It’s official the H-E-B meal maker challenge has begun and today is the first recipe that I am showcasing.  I had to make a recipe using H-E-B salsa and I knew immediately that I would be making nachos.  It has been ages since I have made nachos from home and the ones that I normally make are single chips topped with cheese, beans and guacamole.  I knew that I wanted to do one BIG pile of nachos so that a whole family would be able to eat from one dish.  Not to mention that clean up on a dish like this SO easy and you can spend more time with the kids instead of in the kitchen.  There are days when I come home from work and I just want to be lazy.  There I said it…

Salsa, chips, cheese, meat and toppings is a winner in my book on dinner.  Well, anything having to do with Mexican food has won in my mind.  I seriously have a BAD addiction to Mexican food and I can’t stop craving it.  Just think of all the endless possibilities with this type of food: homemade tortillas, chips, queso, guacamole, ceviche, beer, margaritas, rice, refried beans, fajitas, nachos, quesadillas, sopapillas and oh my gosh I could go on for forever.
