Chicken Nachos with a Cajun Kick

Chicken Nachos with a Cajun Kick

We love our nachos around here, and we love cajun food, so these chicken nachos check off both those boxes. We usually make a meal out of hearty nachos like these, but you could make the same amount as appetizers for more people.

We Like It Spicy, but You Can Customize the Kick

Y’all have probably figured this out from the number of times you see words like “spicy”, “jalapeno”, “cayenne”, “kick” that we are fans of kicking our food up a notch. If you prefer less spice you can tone down these chicken nachos by eliminating the jalapenos, or using just a few, but give the queso sauce a try. It really has a smoky flavor that is so unique, and the heat it adds is minimal.
