BBQ chicken chipotle nachos

Nachos are usually considered snack food.  But these BBQ chipotle chicken nachos will change that.  THESE nachos will make you rethink the family meal!  See, I believe these are a complete meal in themselves.  Everything you’d want to serve your family right here in one pan.

BBQ Chicken Chipotle Nachos

The nachos start with a rotisserie which has been mixed with both a tangy bbq sauce and a smoky chipotle salsa.  That’s the protein.  Black beans add fiber.  The Monterey Jack cheese and Gouda cheese give you calcium.  Red onions and banana peppers are our vegetables.  And finally, our tortilla chips give us our grain.   See?  A complete meal.

BBQ Chipotle Chicken Nachos

I can justify anything can’t I?  I think I’ve convinced myself that raspberry cupcakes are health food.   Please don’t tell me I’m wrong,  I like living in this delusional food state.
