Recipe Comments & Reviews

Really good.. I made sure I used a section of grill that wasn't as hot and it worked out perfectly.. Thanks for a great recipe..
Chips burned within minutes on gas grill. Kind of bland. Won't make them again

Katie - Sorry to hear that the chicken nachos burned and were bland to taste. The key is to make sure the heat is not too hot on the grill. It is important to watch them a couple of times during grilling. In case they begin to get too hot and burn you might have to remove them a little early. With Nachos you can add more ingredients to get more flavor and "heat". Just do this based on your taste and what you like to add to nachos.
