When the FDA finally comes out with their list of Top 5 Most Important Tailgating Foods (should be any day now), I expect to see nachos close to the top. As I demonstrated recently with our other nacho-centric Test Kitchen creation, Baja Fish Nachos, a good topping can elevate a simple party dish into…dare I suggest, a meal?  

I cut a few corners on the chicken tinga, spicy shredded chipotle-braised chicken that loves nacho toppings, condensing it into one pot to keep things convenient. I mean, do you want an awesome snack in time for kickoff or what?
