Barbecue Chicken Nachos THM-E

This recipe came about when I was running low on groceries one day, as it consists of ingredients I usually always have on hand. I have made this so many times since that day! It has become another one of my go to easy E meals. 

3 extra thin corn tortillas (this is one serving)

1 small (5 oz.) can chicken, drained

2 Tbsp. no sugar added barbecue sauce*

1 wedge Light Laughing Cow Cheese

Rotel to taste, drained

1 Tbsp. shredded part skim mozzarella cheese 

*No sugar barbecue sauce is a personal choice item due to some off plan ingredients. THM is coming out with a barbecue sauce hopefully soon. I have not personally had any issues using the no sugar barbecue sauce pictured. It also did not cause any issues for me with weight stalling, etc when I was in weight loss mode.


Place the corn tortillas in air fryer in a single layer, with a rack on top of them so they don't blow around. Heat at 400 degrees for 3 minutes, flip and heat for 3 more minutes. If you don't have an air fryer, or if you are like me and have a small air fryer with room to only do one tortilla at a time, you may want to try the oven method. Preheat oven to 425, and bake the tortillas for around 10 minutes (or until crisp but not browned), flipping half way through. 

While the tortillas are heating, mix the drained chicken with the barbecue sauce.

Remove tortillas from oven or air fryer and spread 1/3 of the wedge of Laughing Cow Cheese on each tortilla. Top with 1/3 of the chicken on each tortilla, then add a little Rotel (to your liking). Store remaining Rotel in the fridge to use in this meal again. Split the one Tbsp. of mozzarella** between the three tortillas. 

Place tortillas back in oven or air fryer until heated through and mozzarella is melted. Watch closely, this just takes a few minutes.


**Depending on what else you are having with your meal, you may have room to add another Tbsp. of mozzarella. As the recipe is written, there is only 2.6 total grams of fat.

Use a pizza cutter to cut into "nachos" and enjoy! I usually add some fresh fruit, an on plan E or FP shake or smoothie, or veggies to round out this meal.

  1. Thanks for sharing this! It's super tasty and also very filling. I messed it up and mixed the cheese wedge with the bbq sauce, but it was still delicious. Also quick. I love hearing how you have been able to stay on plan these past many months - so inspiring! And I love trying your quick recipes.

    1. I'm sure it was just as tasty with the bbq sauce and cheese mixed together! Glad you are enjoying the blog! :)
