Not Your Regular Nachos: Buffalo Nachos

After stuffing myself silly with Mexican food nachos on Cinco de Mayo, I just couldn't bear to have another plate of tortilla chips covered in cheese. That's why I started thinking about other types of chips and toppings. Before I knew it, I was in my kitchen crazily making these buffalo — as in wings not mozzarella — nachos.In this insanely tasty dish, sour cream and onion potato chips are topped with diced buffalo chicken and a blue-cheese sauce. The dish is baked and topped with fresh chopped parsley, green onions, and celery. To see how I made this surprisingly delicious snack,

Ingredients

3/4 cup milk
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon flour
1/4 cup grated or finely crumbled blue cheese
1/4 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese
1 bag sour cream and onion potato chips (recommended: Kettle Chips yogurt and green onion variation)
1 large chicken finger, diced
2-3 tablespoons Louisiana-style hot sauce (recommended: Crystal)
1/4 cup finely grated smoked Gouda
2 tablespoons minced parsley
2 green onions, dark greens removed, minced
1 celery stalk, finely chopped

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350° F.
  2. Make the blue cheese sauce. Warm the milk in a small saucepan over low heat. Do not boil.
  3. Meanwhile in a larger saucepan, melt the butter. Add the flour to make a roux, whisking to combine for 1 minute.
  4. Pour the warmed milk into the butter flour mixture whisking to combine. Heat, bringing to an almost boil until thick.
  5. Remove from heat and whisk in the blue and Parmesan cheeses. Set aside.
  6. Spread a thin layer of chips on a baking sheet or other oven vessel.
  7. In a small bowl, combine the diced chicken with the hot sauce being careful to fully coat all of the chicken with the sauce.
  8. Scatter a layer of chicken on top of the chips. Spoon three tablespoons of the cheese sauce over the chips and chicken.
  9. Top with another layer of chips and the remaining chicken. Pour the rest of the sauce over the entire dish. Sprinkle half of the parsley and green onions over the top. Dust with the smoked Gouda.
  10. Bake in the oven for 7-10 minutes until the cheese is bubbly and melted, the chips are crisp, and the chicken is cooked through.
  11. Remove and top with remaining parsley, green onions, and the fresh celery. Enjoy immediately.

Serves 2.

i love nachos - i think there might have been a period of about 3 months last year when i ate them (from a hole in the wall mex place down the street) at least 4 times a week. and i love the variation, especially with potato chips, which i usu favor over tortilla chips - NEVER THOUGHT TO USE THEM IN NACHOS. brilliance. the only time i've ever made a variation was pita-chos, a wholly mediterranean take on nachos: http://thedeliciouslife.blogspot.com/2006/02/game-what-game-pita-chos.html obviously, not as heart-stoppingly naughty delicious as melted cheese and bleu cheese sauce, but still good :)

I'm with SillyGirl, don't let FitSugar find out about these... :P they look delicious, and I love the chicken factor, but are you seriously considering this a SNACK?! there's probably enough fat in this "snack" to cover the caloric and fat content of a weekend of regular meals. yikes!

I'm not sure how I feel about heating potato chips. The only reason I do for tortilla chips is that they hold up better - I suspect these got awfully mushy...
