  • 2 Spread about half of chips evenly in center of sprayed foil. Top with half of the chicken and half of the cheese. Repeat layers. Wrap packet securely using double-fold seals, allowing room for heat expansion.

  • 4 To serve, open packet carefully to allow steam to escape. If desired, top with chunky-style salsa, chopped tomato, diced avocado, chopped cilantro, sliced green onions, sour cream and/or guacamole.

Expert Tips

Look for nonstick foil at your grocery store to use in recipes like this. You can omit the cooking spray, and the food cooked in the foil will not stick!

To bake nachos in oven, heat oven to 450°F. Wrap nachos in foil as directed in recipe; bake 10 minutes.
