A) Half component – The entire recipe will readily feed eight. It’s without difficulty divided in half, simply use the serving slider at the pinnacle of the recipe card.
B) Cheese – I normally go for three/4 cheddar 1/4 mozzarella. Pepper Jack/Monterey Jack additionally works top notch.
C) Lime Juice – This is elective, but does upload a pleasing kick of the flavor and brings out the spices in the chicken.
D) Tortilla Chips – Opt for a pleasant thick, strong chip. This will preserve things maintain them from going smooth too quickly, mainly if you’re doing double decker.
E) Eat ’em up brief – The longer you leave them, the much less melty the cheese may be and the greater risk of the tortilla chips going soggy. Also, 15mins is only a steerage. You genuinely handiest want them in the oven lengthy enough the soften the cheese (because the chicken is already cooked).
F) Calories – shared between eight human beings, the use of three cups Monterey jack cheese and 1 tbsp + 1 tsp avocado oil to fry. No side dips.
