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!

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

    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!
