10 minutes
15 minutes

250g (9 oz) tortilla chips

2 tbsp vegetable oil

1 large onion, halved, peeled, thinly sliced

2 large capsicums (bell peppers), trimmed, deseeded, thinly sliced

sea salt

1/4 cup sweet chilli sauce (you could also use hot sauce or BBQ sauce here)

1/2 a rotisserie-cooked chicken, cooled, meat shredded

200g (7 oz) grated mozzarella cheese

1 tbsp unsalted roasted peanuts

handful coriander (cilantro) leaves or thinly sliced spring onion (scallions), to serve


Peanut nacho sauce:

1/3 cup smooth peanut butter

1 tbsp dark sweet soy sauce

½ tbsp soy sauce

1 tbsp rice vinegar

  • Step 1

    For the peanut nacho sauce, add the ingredients to a bowl, along with 3 tablespoons of hot water. Whisk to combine, then set aside for later.

  • Step 2

    Preheat the oven grill to high. Meanwhile, scatter the tortilla chips in an even layer in the base of a large baking dish.

  • Step 3

    Heat the vegetable oil in a wok or large frying pan over medium heat. Add the onion and cook for 2 minutes, stirring often, or until softened. Add the capsicum, increase the heat to medium-high, then cook for 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until very tender. Season with salt. Spoon the capsicum mix over the tortilla chips, then drizzle over the sweet chilli sauce.

  • Step 4

    Scatter the shredded chicken over the chips. Spoon over the peanut sauce, then scatter over the mozzarella and peanuts.

  • Step 5

    Place under the hot oven grill for 5 minutes or until the cheese is bubbling and golden. Scatter with coriander or spring onion, then serve.

Scrumptious Nachos


These were absolutely delish, I did add some small hash brown balls between the peppers layer and chicken. A new favorite in our house

Our first Marion recipe!


These were amazing! I did the onions and peppers like a side dish because there’s only two of us and peppers get slimy left over. Will definitely make again. Had leftover peanut sauce which we paired with chicken and noodles, which we will definitely do again. Marion, you’ve inspired me to get back in the kitchen! Thanks!

I have been following Marion since I found her on Facebook. I love her food and bought her new cookbook so I could cook more of her recipes. The recipes all turn out as you hope they will.
