Fall is here. It is time for back to school. And that means things just got crazy!

If they weren't busy before, they certainly are now. For me having a plan and getting dinner on the table is a must.

And I hate dealing with who likes this and doesn't like that. I want to make something everyone will eat. 

And these sheet pan chicken nachos completely fit the bill. You can customize and change them up however you want.

I used chicken that was seasoned with taco seasoning. But using leftover taco meat, pulled pork, or just about anything you have around would be perfect! 

I am not a huge fan of black beans, so I didn't add them to my chicken nachos. My husband complained about that fact though, so next time half of the pan will have beans on them!

That is the beauty of these; you really can just add certain toppings to certain parts. So easy, and everyone is happy. 

I cannot have nachos without homemade guacamole, so you know that is on there! Plus a dollop of sour cream, and some fresh cilantro to bring it all together.

I put our favorite salsa on the side for people to spoon on or dip as they like! These sheet pan chicken nachos were a huge hit at dinner time. My son is already asking for when we can have them again.

So whether you need to feed a crowd for dinner, are having friends over for game day, or just want a quick and easy dinner that everyone will like, these chicken nachos are it!
