Caribbean Nachos

Bahama Breeze! That was the place where I got inspired with this recipe.

The original recipe was made with fried plantain and oh my gosh…it was freaking good. It looked really simple but was bursting with the flavors. I got the recipe from their website and wanted to try at home but I usually don’t eat fried food at home. So I replaced plantain with organic GMO free blue corn chips. And add more stuff…not to mention onions, bell peppers, chicken, but also black beans, tomatoes, pineapples, cilantro, and cheese! It is more colorful, yummier, and healthier.
