There’s nothing quite a like a huge platter of cheesy nachos to satisfy everyone’s tastebuds on game day! These Sriracha-ranch chicken nachos check off all of the flavor boxes!
What are your game day traditions?
Do you invite friends over, or do you go to them? Or maybe you congregate in a “neutral” location? I don’t know about you, but for me, the only game day tradition that matters is game day food. It’s certainly no secret that I could live the rest of my life eating snack and finger foods only, so tailgating food is my jam. And I’ll be honest – we are not people that watch football religiously, but we do love to watch the “big game”…and for me (surprise) that’s because of the snacks.
Do you prefer salty or sweet?
I tend to err on the side of salty rather than sweet, well, 95% of the time. And besides popcorn, there is really no better snack in my book than nachos. A trip to Chattanooga’s Cost Plus World Market, one of my very favorite places (follow this link to find your local store), delivered all the inspiration that I needed to create the perfect platter of nachos for an easy game day snack, down to the actual platter and a great galvanized tub to hold our beverages (scroll to the bottom for links to all products). Sriracha-ranch chicken nachos seemed like a pretty perfect place to start (did you know that Sriracha is almost as popular as ketchup in the U.S. these days? It’s a fact!).
Sriracha-Ranch Nachos are an Easy Crowd Pleasing Snack!
Some shredded chicken (however you want to do it – I just put some chicken thighs in the Instant Pot, but you could totally use leftover or rotisserie chicken), Sriracha, mayo, sour cream, and some Cost Plus World Market spices were all I needed for a tangy and spicy topping for my nachos. A creamy, peppery cheese sauce, a drizzle of lime crema, some Sriracha peas, and sprinkle of cilantro were all it took to perfectly finish off the Late July tortilla chips that I found at Cost Plus World Market. I piled the Sriracha-ranch chicken nachos on a big platter and served it with appetizer plates so everyone could help themselves.
Cost Plus World Market is Where It’s At!
I love to shop the food section of Cost Plus World Market, but it’s also one of my favorite places to shop for textiles and dishes. I found a great party bucket to fill with fun sodas, global beers (no complaint from Philip there!), and Clearly Canadian (CLEARLY CANADIAN!!!!!). They always have the cutest napkins, which I stock up on for my photos, and now they have Duralex shatterproof glasses, so I was able to replace the two that I somehow managed to shatter (only I could shatter shatterproof glass) in a freak vacuuming accident.
How do you celebrate the big game? If you need a new tradition, these Sriracha-ranch nachos are a perfect fit!
