Swapping plain pita chips for tortilla chips turns leftover chicken into a fun twist on nachos. If you want these bites to be less spicy, decrease the amount of chopped jalapeños to 1 tbsp.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup finely diced cooked chicken
  • 1/4 cup chopped drained pickled jalapeño pepper

  • 30 whole wheat pita chips
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

Stir together chicken, jalapeños, lime juice and chili powder.
