A few nights ago I decided that I was in the mood for some chicken nachos. After thinking about it for awhile I fired up the large egg to see if I could make my own corn chips inside the Big Green Egg. I placed a pizza stone in the egg, placed foil over the stone and lightly brushed some olive oil onto the foil. To make the chips I used El Maizal corn tortillas (6″ diameter) and cut them up into chip size pieces. After getting the egg up to 375 degrees I placed the tortillas onto the foil covered pizza stone. I kept a close eye on the baking chips to make sure that they were not getting over done and moved them around so they would cook evenly. After approx. 15 minutes the chips were starting to brown and were done. I thought that they turned out fantastic and with a little salt they were better than most you buy at the store. Next I cooked up some chicken breasts, then chopped them up and added some taco seasoning to the meat. Now I added all of my favorite ingredients including refried beans, cheese, taco sauce, the cooked chicken and sour cream to the top of my freshly made corn chips and back into the Big Green Egg until the cheese is melted to my liking. This was a very easy meal to make and turned out better than I thought it would.
