Fantastic Chicken Bacon Nachos

We have my little brother in law staying with us for a few days so we decided to do a Nacho and Movie night. These turned out so delicious I had to put them on here.

1 bag of tortilla chips
2 small chicken breasts, cooked andshredded
1/2- 1 cup salsa
12 oz  jalapeno bacon( regular bacon if you dont want spice) crumbled
2-4 cups shredded cheese(depending on how cheesy you like it), we used a Mexican blend

1 TB canola oil
3 green onions, chopped and whites separated
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup red pepper, chopped
1/4 cup green pepper, chopped

2 cups refried beans
3 oz cream cheese
1 tsp taco seasoning

Preheat oven to 325

Mix shredded chicken with salsa

In a saucepan over medium heat, heat the oil add the onion whites, garlic and peppers, saute until soft and fragrant.

If you are using refried beans, heat with cream cheese until thoroughly softened and mixed, add taco seasoning.

In a large rimmed baking sheet spread refried beans (if using) Place 1/2 the chips over the beans, then half the onion mixture and half the chicken and half the cheese. Pour over the remaining half of the chips, then onion mixture, then chicken, then cheese.

Sprinkle bacon crumbles over the top.

Bake for 10-15 minutes until cheese is melted well and heated through...

Top with greens of the green onions. We leave the remaining toppings to everyone's preference.

Jalapenos, Olives, Green Chilies, Sour Cream, Salsa, Guacamole, Tomatoes, Chipotle Powder...what ever your hearts desire!!
