If you like nachos, get ready because I have a FUN and delicious nachos recipe for you today!

These White Chicken Chili Nachos are inspired by our Easy White Chicken Chili, they have all of the same flavors as the chili: chicken, white beans, and green chiles. And of course we don’t stop there because we load on lots of toppings. The flavors are incredible!

We love serving these nachos for game day, they are the perfect food to munch on while you are watching football, basketball, baseball, or any sporting event.

We also like to make them for parties, a lazy weeknight dinner, or anytime we’re craving something cheesy and savory. My boys love them and request them all of the time.

Easy Chicken Nachos

The best way to keep this recipe simple? Use a rotisserie chicken. Pick up a fresh rotisserie chicken from the grocery store and shred it! SO easy and the flavor is great!

If you happen to have leftover cooked chicken, that would work too. You could even make these nachos using leftover turkey after Thanksgiving. How delicious would that be?!

Cheese Please!

Nachos need LOTS of cheese! For this recipe, I used Monterey Jack cheese. It is super melty and delicious.

If you want a little kick, you could also use Pepper Jack cheese. And of course, cheddar cheese or a Mexican blend would be good too.

I prefer to buy a block of cheese and grate it myself because the pre-shredded cheese you buy at the store has a powder coating on it and it doesn’t melt as well. But I also understand life is busy and shortcuts are so helpful, so if you only have pre-shredded cheese, you can use it! It will work.

How to Make White Chicken Chili Nachos

I love this recipe because you build the nachos on a large sheet pan. One pan means easy to make and easy to clean up. Sometimes we don’t even get out plates, we just stand around the baking sheet and eat until the nachos are gone. We are fancy:)

Ok, let’s make some nachos!

  • Start with a large baking sheet and place your tortilla chips in an even layer. Choose a thicker, sturdier tortilla chip that can hold up with some toppings! It’s okay if some chips overlap on the pan.
  • Then layer your toppings starting with a cup of cheese, then chicken, beans, and green chiles, and finish it off with more cheese.
  • Place the pan in the oven and cook until the cheese is melted, about 5 to 7 minutes.

Nacho Toppings

Once the nachos come out of the oven and the cheese is all melted and perfect, it’s time to add lots of toppings. Make sure you load the toppings on for the BEST nachos!

  • Fresh avocado or Guacamole
  • Scallions
  • Cilantro
  • Jalapeño slices
  • Sour cream or plain Greek yogurt
  • Salsa verde

Once the nachos are loaded, serve and watch them quickly disappear.

    1. There are white beans:) Cannellini beans, navy beans, or Great Northern will work! Look for them by all of the other beans in the grocery store.

    I made this for dinner last night, my husband & I both loved it, we couldn’t stop eating it, I will definitely be making this again! We are not fans of the hot & spicy, so didn’t use green chiles or jalapeno pepper, also didn’t have any avocado. I did use salsa verde, next time I’ll try a traditional red tomato salsa to compare. I’m vegetarian so used plant-based Sweet Earth Mindul Chik’n strips. This was so good, I’ll be having leftovers for lunch today!
