Bite Me Bit

"Why is it so hard to find an exercise bike with a nice little basket where I can put my nachos?"

-Ron Alderson

Ingredients

4 cups roasted, shredded chicken breasts
1 tbsp fresh lime juice
¼ tsp ground cumin
¼ tsp chili powder

Tortilla chips
2½ cups shredded cheddar cheese

Tomatoes, chopped
Jalapeno peppers, seeded and diced
Barbeque sauce
Guacamole
Sour Cream

Directions

1) In a medium saucepan, combine chicken, barbeque sauce, lime juice, cumin and chili powder over medium heat. Reduce to a simmer and cook stirring occasionally for 10 minutes. Remove from heat.

2) Preheat oven to 350ºF. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and coat with non-stick cooking spray. Spread a single layer of tortilla chips on the baking sheet and top with half the chicken mixture and 1¼ cups cheese. Place another layer of chips over cheese and top with remaining chicken and cheese. Bake for 10 minutes, until cheese is melted and golden brown. Garnish nachos with chopped tomatoes, jalapenos and barbeque sauce. Serve with guacamole and sour cream.
