What are Chicken Loaded Nachos?

But Nachos are like the loyal friend that gets ready in a few minutes to satiate you.
The Story: What Makes Loaded Chicken Nachos So Special?
Nachos originated in northern Mexico and have spread all over the world since 1943. There may be many versions of the origin story of nachos, but this one is particularly popular:
An executive Mexican chef and restaurateur named Ignacio Anaya once took pity on a group of American military wives, whose husbands were posted to an army base called Fort Duncan.
The military wives had shopped throughout the day in the Texan city of Eagle Pass, U.S., (near Fort Duncan) and decided to stop for dinner before heading home. Unfortunately, the ladies were in for a disappointment since all the eateries in the area were closed for the evening.
Mr Anaya, being a gentleman, could not bear to see the fallen faces of the hungry military wives, and he offered to cook something for them with the leftovers in his kitchen.
Soon, Anaya was tossing sliced tortilla chips in hot oil, frying them crispy, drizzling them with fresh cheddar cheese and sliced jalapenos, and throwing the dish in the oven to give it a bake.
Unsurprisingly, the dish impressed the ladies, and Anaya named it after his nickname: Nachos Especials!
When it comes to loaded chicken nachos, it is a customisation that people around the world have made to the original nachos. With tender bits of chicken, stringy cheese, hot jalapenos, and a heaping helping of hot tomato salsa, tart sour cream, and rich guacamole, these nachos are too delicious.
