Cheesy, spicy nachos made with rotisserie chicken is an easy, fuss-free way to get your nachos-fix without any hassle. This is perfect weekend food.

Rotisserie chicken nachosYou guys. This end of year hustle/rush/madness is more than I anticipated it to be. The amount of work I spoke about last week? Yeah, it pretty much doubled. Is it ok for me to have a little moment of panic right about now? *deep breaths* But I have my eye firmly on the prize. A full month of vacation is just around the corner. To be more precise, it is only 39 sleeps away. Can you tell I’m excited?

Rotisserie chicken nachosHowever, a full month away from my blog and work in general gives me just a little bit of anxiety so I have vowed to create enough content to keep you satisfied in that time and let me just tell you, the recipes I have planned are all seriously good ones. As always, Christmas recipes will feature big time but I’m also going to add a good dose easy recipes for fuss-free entertaining to make your festive season one filled with family and friends and laughter and no stress, tears or drinking wine from the bottle in the kitchen (unless that’s what you’re into. No judgement.).

Rotisserie chicken nachosI am already getting into the swing of things with this recipe for the ultimate easy rotisserie chicken nachos. I make sheet pan nachos all the time (in fact, it’s the only nachos I ever make) and it’s honestly an excuse for me to get rid of the stuff in my fridge. Vegetables are sauteed with loads of garlic and chilli before being layered with the corn chips and cheese, left-over bolognaise sauce gets a second chance quite often and when I have almost nothing in the house, frozen corn and cheese make an excellent version.

However, the version I’ve been making for a few weeks now is this rotisserie chicken number. Seriously, is there anything more glorious than a rotisserie chicken?  We’ve been experiencing the most horrendous heatwave this week (I’m talking 39ºc/102ºf) and I just haven’t been able to stand being in the kitchen for very long. Rotisserie chickens always save me in those moments. And here the juicy chicken adds just the right amount of savoury-yumminess to the cheesy nachos. I served the nachos in the pan topped with spoonfuls of guacamole, lashings of sour cream and chopped tomato and it made an excellent, casual dinner. Add a couple of ice cold beers and you have the ultimate game day snack.

    Is there anything better than nachos on game day? Love the sweet corn on these and this is perfect for a crowd.

    I totally agree! Life is so much easier with rotisserie chicken Alida! I use it all the time in all kinds of recipes. These nachos look perfect for game days! Quick, easy and delicious!

    • Alida Ryder

      I can’t actually remember the last time I cooked a whole chicken because it’s just so easy to go and buy one. And the leftovers are my favourite. I use it in everything from soups and salads to sandwiches and these nachos. yum!

  • Barbara

    I love nachos and this seems so easy to make. Could I add other vegetables/beans to this to bulk it out?

    • Alida Ryder

      It really is easy! Yes of course, sauteed onions, peppers, mushrooms and even zucchini would all be perfect in this. Drained kidney beans will also be awesome.

  • Jenni

    These nachos look great! I actually have some leftover rotisserie chicken in the fridge from last night so I think I’ll be making this for dinner.

    • Alida Ryder

      Thanks Jenni. Let me know what you think once you’ve tried it!
