Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 Pound Chicken Breast

  • As Needed Traeger Pork & Poultry Rub

  • 1/2 Cup Traeger 'Que BBQ Sauce

  • 24 Large Tortilla Chips

  • 1 1/2 Cup Mexican Four-Cheese Blend, grated

Steps

  • 1

  • 2

    When ready to cook, set the Traeger to 350℉ and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.
  • 3

    Arrange the chicken breasts on the grill grate and cook, turning once halfway through the cooking time, for 25 to 30 minutes, or until the internal temperature when read on an instant-read meat thermometer is 165℉. Transfer to a cutting board and let rest for 3 minutes. Leave the grill on if you are making the nachos immediately.

    Dice the chicken into small cubes, 1/2” or less. Transfer to a mixing bowl and pour 1/2 cup of Traeger Regular Barbecue sauce over the diced chicken. Stir gently to coat each piece.

    Set aside, or cover and refrigerate if not making the nachos immediately. Lay the tortilla chips in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet or pizza pan. Sprinkle evenly with half the cheese and a few of the jalapenos (if using).
  • 6

    Spoon barbecued chicken mixture on each chip. Top with black olives and more pickled jalapeno, if desired. Sprinkle the remaining half of the cheese evenly over the chips. Scatter the sliced onions over the chips.

    Put the baking sheet on the grill grate. Bake until the chips are crisp and the cheese is melted, 12 to 15 minutes. With a spatula, transfer the nachos to a plate or platter. Serve immediately with the sour cream. Enjoy!
