Just when you thought nachos couldn’t get any more tasty, these Buffalo Chicken Nachos come walking through the door. And normal ol’ nachos will never be the same.

Instead of gloppy cheese sauce, these zingy nachos use buffalo sauce to build layers of tangy goodness. With two kinds of cheese–cheddar and bleu–and more toppings than a buffalo at a rodeo, this recipe is a gotta-make party pleaser that no one can resist.

Fun Flavor Twists

Enjoy this recipe as written below. Or try these easy upgrades:

  • BBQ Chicken Nachos. Swap out the buffalo sauce for BBQ sauce. Top with green onions, toss on some pineapple. Omit the bleu cheese for mozzarella, instead.
  • Buffalo Buffalo Nachos. Instead of chicken, top with cooked ground buffalo for an even heartier option. Burger lovers will love this version!
  • Spice It Up. Wanna sweat while you eat? Shake a couple dashes of tabasco for extra kick.
