Raise your hand if you love nachos. *me me me!*

Hello, pals! This post is sponsored by my friends at Bush Brothers & Company and their well known BUSH’S® Beans just in time for all the picnics and outdoor fun that I can’t wait to happen.

Also, I am here, calling all my nacho-people to the table! These Sheet Pan Lime Chicken Nachos are what you need. No, I mean it. These nachos are your new besties.

When I think of nachos, I think back to like a few weeks ago, day of Cinco de Mayo, when I was staring at this sheet pan, and looking to find some self control so not to inhale it all before getting to the party. Just think of this: you, sitting outside on your porch with a colorful assortment of all good food baked on top of your semi-homemade, browned, crispy tortilla chips. Plus, a tall glass of iced tea to wash it all down… yes, yes, that was me!

Thus, today I am sharing with you that super simple and classic recipe for nachos topped with corn, cheese, tomatoes, BUSH’S® Black Beans, and lime-marinated chicken.

Beans easily rank up there as one of my favorite foods. I have chilled with a can of BUSH’S® Black Beans during a few of my many Netflix marathons. Others prefer potato chips, but I’m cool with reaching for BUSH’S® Beans. Those little guys are packed with protein and fiber, but most of all, they are packed with deliciousness and you can’t argue with delicious. That creamy taste and texture is like no other. If you’ve had BUSH’S® Black Beans, then you definitely know what I’m talking about:

Delicious ✔
Healthy ✔
Accessible ✔
Undeniably amazing ✔

While clearly awesome on their own, they’re also great in soups, rice, salads, and obviously, in these Sheet Pan Lime Chicken Nachos.

I adore these nachos for many reasons, one of those being that you can make them your own. For instance, I like to use gluten-free flour tortillas, cut them up into eighths and give ’em a nice crisp in the oven. You, my friends, can take the easy route and just reach for the tortilla chips, if you want to, or follow my lead.

In the meantime, I prepare some chicken marinated in lime juice and olive oil, and throw it on a grill pan until golden and lovely.

Our next step involves bringing all those good things together, layering them on top of our crisped up tortilla chips and giving it all some time to team up inside the oven.

A garnish of tomatoes, more black beans, sour cream, and avocado ties it all together. The combo is SO easy, but it’s SO good that I can’t keep it hidden.

These nachos have so.much.flavor. Like a ridiculous amount. The juicy tomatoes, the lime chicken, the red onions, the creamy beans, the crunchy corn!! It’s all SO perfect! There is a boatload of cheese, too, in case you didn’t notice.

The real deal here is that there are layers of veggies and proteins on top of our nachos. Obviously, this is good for us.

    I am looking forward to making these but have one question regarding cooking the chicken. Step 4 says to cook chicken in a grill pan, step 5 says to rest and shred chicken, and then step 6 says to cook chicken in the oven. Am I not cooking it all the way through in the grill pan? And how would I shred chicken not cooked all the way? Am I misunderstanding something. I just to make just the chicken is cooked properly. Thanks

    1. Hi!
      The chicken won’t be cooked through on the grill pan – just browned. Depending on the thickness of the chicken breasts, they will need around 20 minutes in the oven to finish cooking. The third step in the oven is just for all the ingredients to meld together. If you feel that it’s too much cooking for the chicken, you can skip the last bit in the oven and then just add the chicken over the nachos at the end.

  2. Oh my, I love chicken nachos and those one looks absolutely the best. I don’t mean to exaggerate, but it are probably the best looking chicken nachos I have ever seen! Thanks a lot for this.
