Cheese

Look for the Proudly Wisconsin Badge when shopping for cheese. Any brand of Wisconsin Monterey Jack or Young Cheddar can be used in this recipe.

Instructions

  1. Flatten chicken to a 1/4-inch thick; pat dry with paper towels. Coat both sides of chicken with taco seasoning.
  2. Warm olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add chicken; cook for 3-5 minutes per side or until a thermometer inserted in chicken reads 165°F. Transfer to a cutting board. When cool enough to handle, thinly slice chicken. Squeeze lime juice over chicken.
  3. Heat oven to broil. Line a 15 x 10-inch baking pan with parchment paper. Arrange tortilla chips in a single layer on prepared pan. Sprinkle with cheddar and monterey jack. Top with chicken. Broil 6 inches from the heat for 4-6 minutes or until cheeses are melted.
  4. Garnish with toppings as desired. Serve immediately. 

Recipe Tips

  • Any brand of Wisconsin cheddar or monterey jack cheeses can be used.
  • The chicken may be cooked and sliced up to a day in advance. When preparing nachos, toss cold chicken with lime juice just before topping chips.
