Grilling nachos adds a hint of smoky flavor and makes it easy for cleanup since they’re cooked right in aluminum foil.

Serves: 4


  • 8 oz. tortilla chips
  • 1 (8 oz.) can tomato sauce

  • 2 cups shredded cooked chicken
  • 1 cup pepper jack cheese, shredded
  • 1⁄4 cup pico de gallo
  • 2 tbsp. fresh cilantro, chopped
