BBQ Chicken Nachos

Finding my home in Kansas City, I have consumed no shortage of BBQ.  It’s something like a rite of passage to live here – you must like smoked ribs, pulled pork, brisket and BBQ chicken.

My dad owns a BBQ restaurant in my hometown – did you know that?  I’m not sure that I’ve ever actually mentioned it here.  Anyway, at his restaurant, he serves pulled pork nachos.   We barely make it to the county line before Paul starts biting his nails in anticipation of these nachos.  My dad piles them high with melted cheese, jalapenos, onions and, of course, his slow-smoked pulled pork and homemade BBQ sauce.

Ingredients

  • for the BBQ chicken:
  • 3 cups cooked chicken (see note below)
  • 1/2 cup BBQ sauce + more for drizzle and dipping
  • 4 dashes liquid smoke
  • 1 Tbs. red onions, chopped
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • for the nachos:
  • Tortilla chips
  • Tomatoes
  • Cilantro
  • Shredded cheese
