Description

If you're craving Mexican food, this quick batch of cheesy, gently spicy nachos will fit the bill. And if you made Easy Shredded Chicken Breast Hack, the recipe will come together in no time. In case some members of the family only like certain toppings, feel free to serve the nachos family-style with the cilantro, jalapeño, and avocados on the side. Love things spicy? Just use the options to amp up the heat. The recipe is a Yummly original created by Ashley Strickland Freeman.
