Buffalo Chicken Nachos

Sharing is caring!

Buffalo. Chicken. Nachos.

As I’m typing this, I’m hungry.

See, two days ago I had a root canal. Not the first one on this particular tooth, no. The second one.

I think the first one was about oh, 10 years ago. Yep, that long. It started bothering me again probably 3 or 4 years ago and, yes, I did go to the dentist and he gave me antibiotics, etc. But, I knew.

This tooth is an asshole. Why do I procrastinate?

The time between the pain became excruciating and after I had the root canal, I couldn’t eat.

Like, anything.

Not even these nachos.

When I got home I knew I had to eat something with my antibiotics/pain killers (I hate those), so I forced myself to chew some saltines on the right side of my mouth. Ugh. Then came the nausea. Nausea is a bitch.

Thank you, Zofran. You’re my new BFF.

I’m now two days out from my root canal and feeling so much better and can’t wait for dinner.

I need food.

Real food.

Buffalo Chicken Nachos


  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 1/2 cups buffalo wing sauce
  • 1/2 cup mayo
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 3/4 cup blue cheese, crumbled
  • 3 tbsp whole milk
  • 1 bag tortilla chips
  • 1 jalapeno peppers, washed and slice
  • 3/4 cup celery, diced
  • 1 cup scallions


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Brush 1 cup of the wing sauce on both sides of chicken breasts and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until done, turning over halfway through.
  • To make the blue cheese sauce, combine mayo through milk in a food processor; refrigerate until ready to use.
  • When the chicken is done, let it cool a little and shred it. (I use my Kitchenaid stand mixer - it works beautifully).
  • Make the nachos by layering chips on a lined baking sheet, then chicken, blue cheese sauce, celery, jalapenos and onions.
  • Bake for 5-10 minutes, until a little bubbly and the chips are starting to brown.
  • Add more wing sauce and blue cheese to serve.

    Just found your blog, hi! Great pictures : )

    My husband would LOVE these. And great idea making nachos on parchment paper, why didn’t I think of that? No more scraping up cheese, please.

    I hate painkillers too. But I also hate going to the dentist for any kind of toothache…so I put it off. I’ve been lucky so far. (I should be knocking on some wood right now!)
    But I DO LOVE these nachos! It’s making me salivate here at the computer screen. Already pinned! (=
