Park and Nachos

A couple of weeks ago we had some really pretty weather.  Actually, we've had several weeks of really pretty weather, I just haven't been able to enjoy it due to my rotation.

 However, this time, I met K and D at the park and we played for a little before going to D's house for supper.  I knew there was some precooked and cubed chicken in his refrigerator, so I suggested chicken nachos.  His response..."Ooo, what are chicken nachos?"  My response..."I don't know, I'd just make it up!"  :-)  We had fun at the park.  K enjoyed the swings and running up the grassy stairs. 

Then when we got to the house, I made dinner.  Just mixed together some of the cubed grilled chicken, a can of black beans, and a can of rotel tomatoes. 

Then I put a layer of tortilla chips on the pan, topped it with the bean mixture and then cheese.  Cook until cheese melts and enjoy.  D said "Mmmm. Like what you'd get in a restaurant."  Nice!  K picked the beans off...I'll take that.

  I had a couple and then topped my salad with the chicken/bean mixture.  YUM!  A good meal for all.

Chicken Nachos
1 package Tyson cubed, grilled chicken (no compensation made for this...hehe!)
1 can black beans
1 can rotel tomatoes
tortilla chips (about 1/3 cup)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Place a layer of tortilla chips on the pan.  In a bowl mix together then cubed chicken, black beans, and rotel tomatoes.  Top the chips with this mixture.  Then sprinkle this with cheddar cheese.  Place pan in oven for about 10 minutes or until cheese melts.  Remove from oven and enjoy!
