Nachos often come to mind when people talk about snack foods. They are really easy to throw together and will go down well as a great cricket party snack. Traditionally, people pair nachos with a cheese dip, salsa or guacamole. However, if you are a meat lover, a chunky, meaty-licious chicken dip probably sounds fantastic. This recipe for Loaded Chicken Nachos requires hardly any prep at all. You can find all the ready to eat ingredients easily. Let’s take a look at how you can rustle this up for your next cricket event.
Where did Nachos come from?
These days you can find nachos anywhere, like the ever-popular Doritos. However, not many people know that this famous snack was born from a simple request. In 1940 a regular customer requested Chef Ignacio Anaya for a new snack.
In an inspired move, he picked up a plate of fried tortillas, added cheese and pickled jalapeños and served them. When asked what they were called he simply responded with “…just call them Nachos…”, which happened to be his nickname.
From that day the dish quickly gained popularity and spread across Northern Mexico, Texas and eventually the world. Upon his death, for making culinary history, a statue of Ignacio was erected in Piedras Negras, where he made his first-ever dish of nachos. Interestingly, October 21st has also been declared International Day of the Nacho.
Licious Chunky Continental Chicken Spread
For our meaty loaded chicken nachos, we have decided to go with our Chunky Continental Chicken Spread. We have used jalapenos to make our ready to eat spread, which preserves some of those original nacho flavours. Our chef has also added garlic and cracked pepper to the all-important cubed roasted chicken, for extra oomph.
The best thing about this chunky spread is that it is entirely trans-fat and preservative-free and is a rich source of protein. Our Chunky Continental Chicken Spread is creamy and flavourful. You can store it for up to 30 days, and we can deliver it to your doorstep in just 90 minutes.
Our Chunky Continental Chicken Spread is pretty versatile too, it would work brilliantly with sandwiches, burgers, wraps and as canapés.
