Can you tell that I have a serious Tex-Mex addiction? I can’t get enough. These Tequila Lime Sheet Pan Chicken Nachos are saving me today. Saving me from thinking about business taxes and recipe fails. I woke up early today to try to be creative in the kitchen and was met with non-stop talk about getting Cookie Rookie taxes together and everything I tried to make was a total flop. SO…Sheet Pan Chicken Nachos.

They’re a no fail recipe that makes me instantly happy. ALL THAT CHEESE. What’s not to love?Tequila Lime SHEET PAN Chicken Nachos is a great recipe for feeding a crowd with delicious chicken nachos!

We have been making variations of these Sheet Pan Nachos for years, and they never fail me. They love me unconditionally. It’s a great relationship. And they don’t talk to me about taxes. Sheet pan meals are perfect for so many things like that. Especially sheet pan comfort food like sheet pan chicken nachos or sheet pan pizza. Yeah, they get me.

I made the chicken nachos tequila lime flavored by using the Tequila Lime Baked Tortillas recipe (made with my FAVE Old El Paso burrito tortillas; not sponsored, I just LOVE!) I posted yesterday. And of COURSE, these are drizzled with my FAVE Homemade White Queso that I posted Wednesday. I love when things come together like that!

If you need me, I’ll be in the corner crying over failed recipes and tax bills. LOVE YOU ALL!

Ingredients

  • 32(ish) Tequila Lime Baked Tortilla Chips (recipe HERE ) (you can also use your favorite tortilla chips instead)
  • 6 boneless skinless chicken tenders, cut into small strips
  • 1 (1 ounce) packet taco seasoning (I'm partial to Old El Paso )
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon tequila
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup White Queso (store-bought or recipe HERE )
  • 2 cups shredded Mexican blend cheese
  • 1 cup prepared pico de gallo
  • 1/4 cup fresh chopped cilantro (optional)
  • Optional additional toppings: black beans, mexi-corn, jalapeños, refried beans, olives, or anything you love!
  • Garnish ideas: sour cream, avocado, guacamole, salsa, the list goes on and on!

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350F
  2. In a large skillet, heat your oil over medium/high heat
  3. Add the chicken into the skillet and toss in the tequila, taco seasoning, and lime juice, Stir to combine. Cook the chicken until fully cooked; about 4-5 minutes. Set aside.
  4. Lay the chips on a large sheet pan/cookie sheet sprayed with nonstick spray. Lay them pretty much in a single layer, only slightly overlapping. (I hate when chips get caught underneath and don't get any toppings!)
  5. Arrange the chicken and onion over the chips.
  6. Drizzle the chips and chicken with the white queso, a little goes a long way. You don't want everything to get soggy.
  7. Sprinkle everything with the shredded cheese
  8. Top with the pico and cilantro.
  9. Bake for approximately 10-15 minutes, rotating halfway through. You want the cheese fully melted and the chips starting to turn brown on the edges.
  10. Remove from the oven and top with all your favorites: sour cream, guac, salsa, the works!
  11. Enjoy!

    You can eat them with your hands, but I totally ate them with a fork haha. They're pretty messy. But definitely you can pick them up!!

Becky, these are amazing! Made them last night and I almost couldn't stop eating them! Fortunately, I did and just heated up the leftovers for lunch. I didn't have white queso, so I didn't use it, but I did add refried beans and sour cream per your suggestions, YUM! My husband isn't a huge fan of Mexican food, but he LOVED this. A regular on my menu going forward! Can't wait to try your taco recipe. :) Thanks so much!
