Buffalo Chicken Ranch Queso Nachos
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
- In medium bowl, combine shredded chicken with buffalo hot sauce
- Chop tomatoes
- Slice jalapeños
- In baking dish or on baking sheet, layer nachos, buffalo chicken mixture, tomatoes, jalapeños and 1 Cup of the shredded cheese - be sure to reserve 6 ounces of shredded cheese for the queso sauce (step 8).
- Repeat layers ending with shredded cheese on top
- Bake for 15-20, until cheese is melty and chicken is warm (chicken should be pre-cooked, we used a deli rotisserie chicken)
- While nachos are baking, prepare queso in a small or medium saucepan: heat flour and butter together, whisk until they become bubbly. Whisk the milk into the flour and butter and bring to a simmer (you may need to increase the heat to reach a simmer). Once thickened, remove from heat. Add ranch seasoning and whisk until blended. Add 6 ounces of the shredded Mexican blend cheese and whisk until melty.
- Pour queso over nachos and serve!
Best served immediately as queso can soften nacho chips. Alternatively you can serve queso on the side as a dip.
