A hearty warm dinner ready in just 20 minutes. Grilled chicken nachos - a perfect Mexican dinner.
Updated Aug 19, 2010

Ingredients

  • 1 (9-oz.) pkg. frozen southwestern-flavored cooked chicken breast strips, thawed
  • 6 cups tortilla chips
  • 8 oz. (2 cups) finely shredded Cheddar cheese

Steps

  • 1
    Heat gas or charcoal grill. Cut 18x18-inch sheet of heavy-duty foil. Spray foil with cooking spray. With 2 forks, shred thawed chicken.
  • 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.
  • 3
    When grill is heated, place packet, seam side up, on gas grill over medium heat or on charcoal grill 4 to 6 inches from medium coals. Cook 10 to 15 minutes or until thoroughly heated and cheese is melted.
  • 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.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    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!
  • tip 2
    To bake nachos in oven, heat oven to 450°F. Wrap nachos in foil as directed in recipe; bake 10 minutes.
