Buffalo Chicken Layered Loaded Nachos

 Nachos are a great game day snack, as well as a bbq, party, fiesta food. I love that they combine so many different textures and flavors. For the Superbowl I wanted to make them a little different, so I added buffalo chicken to them. Since we don't have a working oven yet, we threw them on the grill to melt the cheese and it worked out just fine, they were on indirect heat for about 20 minutes. Definitely go with the full fat cheese, as that melts much better than the 2%. And dont be stingy!

Layered Loaded Nachos (meat from allrecipes)
2-3 Chicken breasts, halved
1 bottle Franks Red Hot Sauce
1/2 of a 12oz packet Ranch Mix
2 tbsp Butter

Place all ingredients in a crockpot on low, for about 2- 4 hours. Check at 1 and 2 hours to see if chicken is fully cooked. If it is, shred and heat for another hour.

Tortilla Chips
Buffalo Chicken
2 Jalapenos, Sliced
1/2 Tomato, chopped
1/2 Red Onion, chopped
2 Slices Bacon, cooked and chopped

In a baking pan, layer the bottom with chips. Add chicken and toppings, then add a large portion of cheese. Add another layer of chips, filling and cheese.

Place in an oven at 350 or on the grill (indirect heat) for about 20 minutes, until everything is melted through. Serve wit sour cream.
