I might be a little obsessed with the flavors on the California Pizza Kitchen BBQ Chicken Pizza.
I’ve made the mini pizza version. And the street tacos version. And now…the nachos version.
There’s something you must know about these nachos…an ingredient that is essential and I h.i.g.h.l.y. recommend that you use.
Shredded Gouda cheese.
It exists. My not-so-giant-not-a-nationwide grocery store has a generic store brand version of it, so I imagine that your store will have it too. I hope they have it!
(If you can’t find it, shredded mozzarella or colby jack would be the next best options!)
The Gouda flavor is key for this recipe…the slight smokiness balances perfectly with the sweet and the tang from the BBQ sauce.
You can see how utterly simple this is. Rotisserie chicken tossed with BBQ sauce (whatever brand your prefer!), drop that on top of some tortilla chips and then douse it all in shredded Gouda cheese. If you want the full CPK flavor experience, add a little chopped cilantro and chopped red onions on top too!
There you have it…Happy Nacho Night my friend!
