Roast Chicken Chipotle Nachos with Cilantro Avocado Cream
This is a delicious party appetizer that also made a great Sunday football lunch.
Makes 24 Nachos - Serves 8 as an appetizer
Start by purchasing a two-pound deli rotisserie chicken. Then you just remove the skin and pick off the meat and you are ready to go with already-prepared chicken.
2 cups shredded chicken
In a 3 quart pan over medium heat, brown onion in olive oil, add cumin seeds and oregano and stir. Add chilies, tomato paste, vinegar and 1/2 cup water and bring to a boil. Simmer for about five minutes, add the chicken and stir until hot.
Arrange tortilla chips on a cookie sheet and sprinkle each chip with cheese then spoon about a tablespoon of the chicken mixture on each chip. Bake in a 450 degree oven for about 3 minutes. Transfer to a platter and top each chip with a teaspoon of the cilantro avocado cream and garnish with a cilantro leaf. Serve warm.
Cilantro Avocado Cream
1/3 cup ripe avocado, diced
Mash the avocado to a paste using a fork, then combine with the other ingredients and mix well.
