Directions

Watch how to make this recipe.

For the chicken and salsa: Position an oven rack in the top of the oven and preheat to 425 degrees F.

Bake the chicken nuggets according to the oven method on the package directions. Set aside. 

Meanwhile, make the salsa. Toss together the corn, cilantro, lime juice, jalapeno with brine, olive oil, tomatoes, avocado, onion and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a medium bowl. Set aside. 

For the nachos: Combine the beans, adobo sauce and olive oil in a medium bowl. Spread the tortilla chips in an 11-by-15-inch baking dish or rimmed baking sheet. Top with the shredded cheese and the bean mixture. Bake on the top rack until the cheese is melted and bubbly and the beans are heated through, about 10 minutes. 

While the nachos bake, cut the chicken into bite-size pieces and toss in a medium bowl with the contents of the flavor packet if included. 

Top the baked nachos with the salsa and chicken bites. Dollop the sour cream over the top and sprinkle with the cilantro leaves and jalapeno slices. Serve with lime wedges.
