These beautifully flavorful BBQ Shredded Chicken Nachos are an instant crowd-pleaser and so easy to throw together before your Super Bowl tailgate party. Once you've cooked and shredded your chicken, it is as simple as combining the rest of your ingredients and tossing in the oven. Guests will appreciate the unexpected flavor combination of quality bbq sauce, hand shredded chicken, and pickled onions stacked on top of a toasty tortilla chip. To add more depth, texture, and healthy fats to this dish, try adding diced avocado on top after baking!
When conceptualizing this recipe, we wanted to break from traditional (albeit super yummy) nacho toppings and mix in some tasty flavors we knew we loved but had not seen on a chip before. Of course, our first priority was to feature Twidley Bits phenomenal Pickled Red Onions. These onions truly shine when pickled with bay leaves and black peppercorns along with classic vinegar, sugar, and salt. Next, we decided to coat the shredded chicken in Babygold's Barbecue Amber BBQ Sauce for a Memphis-style kick with a touch of smoke. The notes of brown sugar, molasses, and cider vinegar add some well-balanced sweetness to the tangy flavor of the pickled red onions. As for the foundation, we cannot recommend the Heirloom Blue Corn Tortilla Chips from Molino Tortilleria enough! These perfectly seasoned chips are above and beyond any run-of-the-mill tortilla chips you find in the grocery store.
