I’ve been pretty excited to grill this last month if you haven’t noticed. Chicken Nachos are probably one of my year around favorite things to make, and with the perfect weather we’ve been having I had to do a smoked chicken nacho recipe on the grill! #sorrynotsorry
Food Should Taste Good sent me over an assortment of their tortilla chips including their Guacamole Tortilla Chips. Food Should Taste Good Guacamole Tortilla Chips with real ingredients are right up my alley and I knew instantly they would make for a perfect nacho!
Food Should Taste Good Tortilla Chips are wholesome snacks that deliver on great taste, real, simple ingredients perfect for Memorial Day Weekend entertaining. Food Should Taste Good believes in crafting better snacks, as they know food tastes best when it’s made with real ingredients.
What I like most about their product, is that they are non-GMO, certified Kosher and certified gluten-free. Many of the chip varieties are also certified vegan. So, if you want to replace the chicken with tofu and use vegan-friendly cheese, you can go full vegan with their chips!
Before I go on about the smoked chicken nachos, lets just talk about what to drink. Memorial Day is coming up and you can’t NOT have a beer to celebrate! But what about a beer cocktail?
I put together this tasty Orange Ginger Beer Cocktail using some fresh squeezed orange juice with some ginger beer and a Belgian white beer.
Using some good quality ginger beer will give you that spice from the ginger with a little sweet notes at the end from the orange. It’s quite refreshing and pairs really well with the smokiness of the nachos. This beer cocktail is a really easy drink to put together for your guests too!
I actually would just let them pour it out themselves as its no harder than making a vodka cranberry – and they can drink more of them without you having to fight them for their keys!
So yes, smoking the chicken takes a little time. I grilled them with a smoke box inside and it took about an hour, but was well worth it! Whats perfect about nachos, is you don’t necessarily need to have the ingredients cooked immediately before.
What I did was smoked my chicken ahead of time and made extra for my lunches using my Texas Style BBQ Rub. Then, when I was ready to make my nachos a couple days later, I chopped up the chicken, threw it on top of the Food Tastes Good Guacamole Tortilla chips, with some black beans, cheese and a spicy habanero salsa I picked up from the store. 15 minutes later – Smoked Chicken Nachos ready to serve!
