Yes, Nachos are mostly served as an appetizer, but this dish is so loaded with so many filling ingredients that it can stand alone as a main dish. In fact, you might want to make a big pan or two and watch both pans go very quickly. 

These Loaded Chicken Nachos took no time at all to make.  I could tell that they were going to be delicious. The smell was permeating and teasing my nostrils and I could hardly wait to try them. I loved seeing the cheese melt perfectly, and cheesy it was. Feel free to use the cheese of your choice. Mozzarella, Cheddar, American, Pepper Jack, the list goes on and on. The cheese you choose  is truly your preference. I love cheese. Cheese is a must in Mexican food.  

My Only Tip: Be sure to grab your cheeses early, because the grocery stores will need to have a lot of supply to keep up with the Super Bowl demand. It is usually hard to find Velveeta cheese during a big event, so plan accordingly. Do not go home empty handed without your cheese. There is NO party without a good platter of Nachos and chips. 

Be sure to refrain from double dipping though. Let’s be responsible, especially, when we all want to stay healthy and well. I know these Loaded Chicken Nachos are going to have you doing the Super Bowl Shuffle but, right after, you give your Winning Speech! Enjoy the Loaded Chicken Nachos!
