Let’s Get Started

The first thing you need to do is set your Instant Pot to the Sauté setting. Add 2 tbsp of olive oil and minced onions to the pot. Sweat 4 -5 minutes until translucent. Meanwhile, you will want to coat chicken breast with a really good BBQ spice rub, then place in Instant Pot directly on top of your onions. Top it all with 1 cup of your favorite sauce. Secure the lid and seal the steam release valve. Cook at High-Pressure Manual Cook High for 18 minutes and allow to naturally vent when done.

Allow Instant Pot to naturally vent and decompress before opening. Remove chicken and shred meat. I like to use a set of meat claws but two forks will work just fine too. Coat all meat with remaining barbecue sauce. *You may need to open the additional bottle at this point.

Assembly

To assemble the Cowboy Nachos, I layer my homemade BBQ Baked Bean, which are. slightly mashed with a potato masher, to make a paste on top chips (this replaces the standard refried beans). Next layer on your BBQ Chicken. Then add corn which can either be grilled fresh or canned corn, onions, and jalapeno peppers. Top with shredded Mexican cheese of your choice and toast under the broiler or in your Ninja Air Fryer for 5-10 minutes until cheese is melted and gooey.

Once you have toasted up your Cowboy Nachos top with sour cream, and garnish with optional scallions and fresh tomatoes, drizzle with a little extra barbecue sauce, and serve.
