In queso you didn’t know, these nachos are healthy and grain-free and LOADED with all the good stuff. These sheet pan chicken nachos are the perfect protein-rich dish to share with friends (just be sure to grab the good chips before everyone else).


  • 1 1/2 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 chicken breasts (approx 10 oz.)
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 1 bag Siete Grain-Free Tortilla Chips (substitute 1 sweet potato cut up into fries)
  • 1/2 red bell pepper
  • 1/2 green bell pepper
  • 1 jalapeño
  • 1 shallot
  • 2 avocados
  • 1 Tbsp lime juice (optional)
  • 1/2 cup Siete Cashew Dairy-Free Nacho Cheese
  • 1/4 cup cilantro (chopped, optional)
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt


  1. Heat 1 Tbsp coconut oil in skillet
  2. Sprinkle paprika over chicken breasts and cook in skillet for approx. 3 mins each side until thoroughly cooked
  3. While chicken is cooking, spread chips out flat on a baking sheet or serving tray
  4. Heat 1/2 Tbsp coconut oil in separate skillet
  5. Cut up 1/2 both red and green bell peppers and jalapeno into strips, dice shallot, and saute in skillet until tender
  6. Mash 1 avocado in bowl and add lime juice if using
  7. Cut the other avocado into thin slices
  8. Pull chicken (or cut into strips) and layer on top of baking sheet with chips
  9. Sprinkle peppers, jalapeño pepper, and shallot over top
  10. Scoop mashed avocado into center or tray and sprinkle the avocado slices evenly
  11. Heat cashew nacho cheese according to directions on jar and drizzle over top of chips
  12. Sprinkle chopped cilantro and sea salt


Note 1 :  If serving for a crowd, wait until you are ready to eat to layer on the toppings over chips

Note 2 :  If you want super crispy nachos, bake the tray in a oven at 350 F for about 3 mins with all the toppings

Note 3: Ground beef also pairs well with this recipe in place of chicken (or, in addition to, if you want SUPER loaded nachos).
