Kettle-Chip Nacho Fiesta

I recently went to a Southern barbecue restaurant and on the menu I saw nachos made with kettle chips and thought that was a very unique idea. I couldn’t wait to give it a try at home.

A few days later Kettle Brand emailed me, asking me to try their new fiesta pack, and all I could think about were those kettle nachos. Talk about meant to be!

For those of you who know me, know I’m obsessed with ooey-gooey cheesy nachos. I love hosting parties and setting out a nacho bar. This nacho bar is a little different, and to be honest a lot easier. It’s a cold nacho bar, similar to a salsa bar, with no need to bake these nachos.

I chose ingredients that are terrific cold making this nacho bar the perfect idea for an indoor or outdoor Cinco de Mayo fiesta.

Instead of using traditional corn tortilla chips, I stocked the bar with Kettle Brand Fiesta Pack potato chips: Avocado Oil Chili Lime, Avocado Oil Tropical Salsa, Chile Verde, and Jalapeño (which is my favorite with crema Mexicana or sour cream.)

The next step to the nacho bar is the toppings. I made some of my favorite salsas: pico de gallo, mango and avocado salsa, and strawberry pico de gallo.

Next, I set out traditional and unique ingredients, including: shredded rotisserie chicken, homemade guacamole, crumbled queso fresco, crema Mexicana, sliced radishes, pomegranate seeds, green onions, sliced jalapeños, cilantro, and lime wedges.

The best thing about a nacho bar is enjoying your fiesta – No need to be stuck cooking in the kitchen. Once the nacho bar is set up you can grab a cerveza or a prickly pear margarita, sit back, relax, and watch your guests have fun tailoring their plates with their favorite toppings.

If you haven’t tried Kettle Brand chips, you have got to try them, they are so delicious and I love their new flavors.

They are made with natural ingredients, no preservatives, and are gluten free, which is awesome for my gluten-free amigas.

Don’t forget the decor – these Mexican paper flowers are the perfect backdrop. Hope you are inspired to host a nacho bar this weekend and celebrate Cinco de Mayo in style.

The Kettle Brand Fiesta Pack is available on Boxed.com.
