      Transfer to a cutting board and let rest for 3 minutes. Leave the grill on if you are making the nachos immediately.
    • 5

      Shred the chicken. Transfer to a mixing bowl and pour 1/2 cup of Traeger 'Que BBQ Sauce over the chicken. Stir gently to coat evenly. Set aside, or cover and refrigerate if not making the nachos immediately.
    • 6

      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 jalapeños. Spoon barbecued chicken mixture on each chip. Top with black olives and more pickled jalapeños, if desired. Sprinkle the remaining cheese evenly over the chips.
    • 7

      Put the baking sheet on the grill grate. Bake until the chips are crisp and the cheese is melted, 12 to 15 minutes.
