Easy Shredded Chicken Nachos Recipe


You’re going to love these cheesy shredded chicken nachos! They are loaded with layers of chips, shredded chicken, beans, and cheese, plus fresh toppings! 


Units Scale
  • 3 cups shredded salsa chicken
  • bag of tortilla chips (I recommend thicker chips so they are sturdier)
  • 16 oz. shredded cheese
  • 15 oz. can of refried beans
  • 1 head romaine lettuce
  • 1 medium avocado
  • pico de gallo
  • sour cream
  • chopped cilantro
  • chopped red onion
  • extras: hot sauce


  1. Preheat broiler to high.
  2. Prep ingredients:
    Heat chicken in microwave or stove top if not already heated through.
    Wash and chop lettuce.
    Wash and chop cilantro.
    Mince red onion.
    Dice avocado.
  3. On a large sheet pan, put down a single layer of chips. Top with a layer of shredded cheese, dollops of refried beans, drained chicken mixture (you don’t want too much moisture or the chips will get mushy), and some more shredded cheese.
  4. Broil until the cheese has melted, 1-3 minutes, watching closely.
  5. Top with desired fresh toppings.


  • You’ll need cooked chicken for this recipe. I recommend crockpot salsa chicken, but you could also use shredded chicken from the store, rotisserie chicken, or grilled chicken.
