BBQ Chicken and Smoked Cheese Nachos


8 to 10 oz. cooked chicken-breast meat, diced
2 Tbs. prepared barbecue sauce
4 to 5 oz. corn tortilla chips
3 oz. shredded smoked mozzarella
3 oz. shredded Monterey Jack
1/2 cup diced red onion

Preheat 475-degree oven. In small bowl, toss chicken and barbecue sauce until coated. Arrange chips in single layer on baking sheet. Sprinkle both cheeses evenly over chips. Spoon chicken and onion onto each chip. Bake nachos for four to six minutes until cheese is bubbly. Toss coleslaw mix over chips and serve.

Lemon-Pepper Cole Slaw


2 tsp. good-quality mayonnaise
1 Tbs. fresh lemon juice
1 green onion, chopped
1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
1 cup finely shredded green cabbage
