Hatch Chile Chicken Nachos:

This recipe is a quick and delicious recipe that your family will love.  The best part is that it is low in fat and it can be eaten alone or added to a wrap or bowl.  I like to shred it that I put it over Beanitos chips.

This is a delightful recipe with a slight kick. I really enjoy it. I like it a bit more spicy so I added a little hot sauce.
