Here are the directions that you need to follow in order to complete this recipe: 

First, make the salsa shredded chicken. In a small pot over medium heat with the lid on, bring 2 chicken breasts, 1 jar salsa, 1/2 jar full of water, and cumin to a boil.

Reduce to a simmer and continue cooking for 2 hours, stirring occasionally to ensure the bottom does not burn. Off heat, shred chicken with two forks, and this is the base for the nachos.

Next, you need to layout multiple small baking trays. Set the oven to broil. Arrange an assembly line in the following order and one-by-one encourage folks to scatter chips on their tray.

The Next  Layer Ingredients 
  • Tortillas
  • Doritos
  • Scoops

Evenly distribute the chips to form the next layer. 

Add the shredded cheese. This is a crucial moisture barrier to protect them from everything else.

  • Beans
  • Salsa Shredded Chicken
  • Poblanos
  • Onions
  • Jalapeños

Scatter everything evenly for optimal flavor distribution.

Pop each tray under the broiler until the cheese is melted and starting to brown around the edges. This happens fast—2 to 3 minutes—so keep watch!

Remove the baking sheet from the oven and have folks pick up their tray to complete their masterpiece by topping the nachos with:

  • Taco sauce or hot sauce
  • Sour cream (or a combo of the two for a killer crema)
  • Tomato salsa
  • Scallions
  • Corn
  • Avocado
  • Cilantro

Evenly distribute every topping on the nachos. Serve immediately and enjoy!
