Sweet and Spicy BBQ Chicken Nachos and a Sun Chips Giveaway

This post may contain affiliate links. See my full disclosure for further details.

My husband and I pack school lunches for our three boys almost every day. And more often than not, their lunches contain a snack-size bag of SunChips®. So we were all excited to learn about SunChips newest flavor, Sweet and Spicy BBQ. No one was as excited as my 9 year-old though. He is a barbecue fanatic! In fact, just the other day he opted for dipping his baby carrots in barbecue sauce rather than Ranch dressing. Really. So it’s no surprise that he proclaimed the new barbecue flavor the best SunChips ever! My 13 year-old also said they were his favorite. My 16 year-old, being his usual agreeable self, said he “likes all the flavors of SunChips equally.” I loved the new barbecue flavor too! I’m almost as big a fan of barbecue as my youngest. Although I doubt I’ll be trying the carrots with barbecue sauce anytime soon. These Sweet and Spicy BBQ Chicken Nachos, however, were right up my alley. And they were a big hit with the rest of the family too.


Sweet and Spicy BBQ Chicken Nachos

Preparation 10 mins Cook Time 10 mins Total Time 20 mins


  • 1 bag (7 oz.) Sweet And Spicy BBQ flavored SunChips
  • 1 rotisserie chicken
  • 1 cup barbecue sauce
  • 1-2 teaspoons chipotle chilies in adobo sauce, chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded pepper jack cheese

Optional toppingsSour cream

  • Salsa
  • Guacamole
  • Chopped green onions
  • Chopped or pickled jalaepenos
  • Fresh Cilantro


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Arrange about 48 chips on a large baking sheet.
  2. Remove chicken meat from bone and place in a medium bowl. Stir in up to 1 cup barbecue sauce, just enough to moisten chicken. Stir in the chilies in adobo.
  3. Top each chip with about 1 tablespoon of the chicken mixture. Mix the two cheeses together and sprinkle over chicken.
  4. Bake for about 10 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and beginning to brown. Remove from the oven and top with your favorite toppings.
