Chicken, ham, alfredo sauce and mozzarella cheese piled high on tortilla chips and baked until irresistibly gooey – perfect for game day, movie night, or an easy lunch!

Let me first just say that I know Swimsuit Season is drawing near (or maybe it has already arrived where you live). Let me also just say that this recipe doesn’t use a traditional Alfredo sauce, but a lighter one, and hey – look at all that protein!

Have I convinced you yet?

I’ve kind of got this fascination with nachos going on lately. Ever since those BBQ Bacon Cheeseburger Nachos, life just hasn’t been the same.

This whole idea that you can take any meal, pile it on top of some chips and it becomes a perfectly acceptable any-time-of-day kind of meal? I’m lovin’ it.

Also, I love meat and sauce and cheese.

And nachos make me feel good inside.

Even in Swimsuit Season.

I pretty much love everything Chicken Cordon Bleu. Like these scalloped potatoes? Best. Ever.

And sometimes when your baby wakes you up at 12:30am and your toddler has to go pee at 3:00am and 6am, you need a plate of nachos for lunch. Maybe even supper.

And you might not be able to think of a bunch of intelligent things to say or a funny story or some super creative descriptive food words that will entice you to go make these other than, “you should totally make these.”

But you should totally go make them anyway. 🙂

    Oh…. My family just sucked down an entire batch, and I’m in the process of putting batch #2 in the oven…!! Ridiculously good! Such a clever new take on the classic “nachos” model. I’m not that creative with my cooking, but I’ll gladly mooch off yours…. Thanks for the great recipe!

  2. Thao @ In Good Flavor says

    I’m loving this. It’s a nacho twist I haven’t seen before. It looks fabulous!

  3. Shinee says

    I have yet to perfect my nacho skills. Every time I make nachos, my husband isn’t too impressed. But this one sounds amazing, Ashley! I’ll give it a go! And who cares about swim suit season when we need to have all the nachos and chocolates to eat!

  4. Mariah @ Mariah's Pleasing Plates says

    Nachos are my ultimate comfort food! Love this spin on them! You are so creative Ashley!

  5. Erin @ Miss Scrambled Egg says

    A wonderful twist on an entree, Ashley! Although I don’t eat ham, I’ll have to share this recipe with my mom. She used to make us Chicken Cordon Bleu growing up and I know that she’d love to make this for her friends.

  6. Alyssa @ My Sequined Life says

    One of my favorite guilty pleasures is to split a plate of (good) nachos for a meal with Brian or a friend. Talk about all my favorite things in one! These nachos look amazing Ashley!! I love the flavor twist here. So good!

  7. Danielle says

    I love nachos, especially when they look this delicious! That lighter alfredo sauce is awesome too! Just means I can eat more, right? 😉

  8. Alice @ Hip Foodie Mom says

    Ashley, all I needed to see was the photo and now I want to make these!!!! and hey, baby waking you up at 12:30am and your toddler has to go pee at 3:00am and 6am, I say grab those nachos, a few brownies and a pour yourself a glass of wine too while you’re at it. 😛

    • Ashley says

      Haha, things are slowly improving over here at night! But there’s always room for nachos and brownies in my bedtime routine 🙂

  9. Dorothy Dunton says

    Hi Ashley! I have been craving nachos lately – how did you know? I have tostadas in the pantry and this would be a perfect topping for them!

  10. Sam @ SugarSpunRun says

    OK I was sold when I saw the pictures but the lightened up alfredo (and you’re right–the protein!) have me heading to the grocery store for these ingredients right now! Seriously though, I will be making this! 🙂

  11. marcie says

    You’re on a nacho roll, Ashley, and I love how creative you got with these! I haven’t had chicken cordon bleu in ages, and this nacho version would be the best way to re-visit it! 🙂
