When it comes to game-day snacking, we leave the messy task of deep-frying hot wings to the pros. But buffalo-flavor nachos? Game on. (Be sure to use kettle-cooked chips; they're crunchy enough to support all the toppings.)


  • 6 cups kettle-cooked wavy potato chips
  • 2 cups shredded cooked chicken*
  • 1/3 cup cayenne pepper sauce (Frank's RedHot)
  • 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese (4 ounces)
  • 1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese or shredded cheddar cheese (2 ounces)
  • Very thinly sliced celery and chopped celery leaves


  1. Preheat broiler. Spread potato chips evenly on a baking sheet or in a shallow oven-going skillet. (If you like, line the pan with foil for easy cleanup.)
  2. In a small bowl, combine chicken and 1/3 cup pepper sauce. Top chips with chicken, then sprinkle evenly with the Monterey Jack and blue cheese.
  3. Broil 4 to 5 inches from the heat for 2 to 3 minutes or until cheese is melted and chips start to brown. Garnish with celery and celery leaves. Serve immediately.


  • *Tip Since purchased deli-style rotisserie chicken is very salty (and you'll get plenty of that from the chips), we recommend cooking plain chicken for this recipe. Place a large (12 ounces) boneless skinless chicken breast in unsalted or very lightly salted water; bring to a boil and simmer for 12 to 15 minutes, or until cooked through (165 degrees or no longer pink inside).
