Hola! Cinco de Mayo is just around the corner, which means it's time to get out the margarita glasses, tortilla chips and guacamole for a fiesta! It's sort of disappointing Cinco de Mayo is on a Monday this year and not on a weekend. It's hard to be motivated to party when you get off a 12-hour shift and have to wake up at 4:45 am the next morning for another one. But that's alright, good Mexican food is always welcome any night of the week in my house!
Ever since joining Tastefully Simple as an Independent Consultant, I have become obsessed with their Chipotle Beer Marinade Mix. Last week I made kabobs and this week I've made nachos that are seriously muy delicioso! Last night I used the leftover marinated chicken thighs to make chipotle chicken burgers (yum!). The possibilities are endless :)
The marinade mix is part of the Spring/Summer collection and only available until September, so I'm seriously going to have to stock up because I love this marinade mix so much! I absolutely love how I can throw meals together after a 12 hour shift at the hospital that takes no time at all and absolutely delicious. Throw the chicken thighs in marinade, grill the chicken, assemble the nachos and bake for only a few minutes. Fast and fantastic!

Chipotle Beer Chicken Nachos
-4 boneless skinless Chicken Thighs
-1/4 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
-1/2 packet of Tastefully Simple Chipotle Beer Marinade Mix
-1 (12 ounce) bag of Crispy Round Tortilla Chips
-8 ounces of shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese
-1 cup drained and rinsed Black Beans
-1 cup defrosted frozen Corn Kernels
-2 Green Onions, greens and white, thinly sliced
-Salsa & Sour Cream, for serving
For the Chipotle Beer Chicken Thighs:
Place the Chipotle Beer Marinade Mix in a large plastic bag with 1/4 cup of EVOO. Add the chicken thighs, seal the bag and shake to combine. Set aside to marinade for 30 minutes or longer.
Preheat the grill over medium heat once you are ready to get cooking. Grill the chicken thighs 2-3 minutes per side until cooked all the way through. Remove the chicken from the grill to a cutting board and cut the chicken thighs into bite size pieces.
For Assembling the Nachos:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees (F). On one large oven-proof serving dish or 4-6 separate ones, place a layer of round tortilla chips on the bottom of the dish. Follow with a layer of shredded sharp cheddar cheese, chopped chipotle chicken thighs, corn kernels and black beans. Repeat with another layer of tortilla chips, cheese, chicken, corn and black beans. Finish the nachos with a layer of cheddar cheese on top. Bake the nachos until the cheese is all melted. Serve with sour cream and salsa, and sprinkle the thinly sliced green onions on top. Enjoy!
