Cook Method


2 cups nacho cheese sauce, heated
1 (10 to 12-ounce) bag tortilla chips
1 (16-ounce) LLOYD’S® Seasoned & Shredded Chicken In Original BBQ Sauce, heated according to package directions
1 (15-ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup sliced pickled jalapenos
2 cups Pico de Gallo
1½ cups sour cream
Hot sauce, as desired


  1. In bottom of a large, clean and empty tin can, spread a thin layer of cheese sauce. Using a ¼ of the tortilla chips, make an even layer of chips over the cheese sauce. Layer with 1/3 of the remaining cheese sauce, 1/3 of the chicken, 1/3 of the black beans, 1/3 of the shredded cheese, 1/3 of the jalapenos, 1/3 of the Pico de Gallo, and 1/3 of the sour cream. Drizzle with hot sauce.

  2. Repeat layering chips, cheese sauce, chicken, black beans, shredded cheese, jalapenos, Pico de Gallo, sour cream, and hot sauce two more times. Place another layer of chips on top. Place a dinner plate on top of the can and carefully flip over. Slowly remove the tin from the nachos.
