Prep Time 5 minutes

Cook Time 20 minutes

Total Time 25 minutes

Servings 4

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small red onion
  • 2 cups shredded cooked chicken
  • Salt & pepper
  • 1 cup BBQ sauce
  • 1 bag tortilla chips*
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar/mozzarella blend

Garnish:

  • 1 tablespoon cilantro chopped finely
  • Sour cream to taste

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Chop onion and cilantro and prepare cheeses (if you need to grate them).
  3. Add the olive oil, onion, chicken, salt & pepper, and BBQ sauce to the skillet on medium-high heat. Cook for five minutes, stirring occasionally, until it’s all mixed together and starts bubbling.
  4. Remove the chicken mixture from the pan and set aside.
  5. Add a fairly even layer (some overlap is ok) of tortilla chips to the bottom of the pan. Add half the chicken mixture, followed by half the cheese. Add another layer of tortilla chips, the rest of the chicken mixture, and the rest of the cheese. Bake for 15 minutes.
  6. Serve with cilantro sprinkled on top and a dollop of sour cream. Dive in immediately.

Recipe Notes

  • *I bought a 10.7 ounce bag of tortilla chips and ended up using about 3/4 of it. How many chips you use will really depend on the size of your pan and how much you layer them.
