Super Bowl party food is supposed to be indulgently heavy and satisfying. It should be rich and savory and totally over the top.
So to satisfying all of those criteria, I created a mega mashup that draws on two classic party foods — Buffalo chicken wings and nachos. The resulting buffalo chicken nachos are easy to assemble, but pack tons of big, bold flavor to get you through the big game. And because they are nachos, it’s easy to make enough to feed a crowd.
To keep things as easy as possible, I start with the meat from a rotisserie chicken. But if you’d prefer to grill or roast your own, have at it. The meat from the chicken then gets tossed with a killer Buffalo sauce, then spread over a thick bed of tortilla chips. Add cheese and the rest of the toppings, then pop them in the oven until melted.
