  • 4 big servings if served as a main course. If you serve it as an appetizer or snack, it can feed 8 people. Author: Maggie Zhu Recipe type: Appetizer, Snack, Main Cuisine: Fusion Serves: 4 to 8 Ingredients 1 (12 ounces / 350 grams) pack wonton wrappers (see footnote 1) Olive oil or vegetable oil For mango salsa 1/4 red onion, finely chopped 1 (7 ounce / 200 gram) can pickled jalapenos 1/4 cup lime juice (from 2 limes) 2 pounds (1 kilogram) mango (about 6 small or 2 big mangos) 2 tomatoes, chopped 1/2 cup cilantro, chopped 1/2 teaspoon sea salt, or to taste For the nachos 4 braised skinless chicken thighs, shredded (see footnote 2) 1 cup crumbled cheese Instructions Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 C). Slice wonton wrappers in half, into triangular pieces. Spray a thin layer of oil onto a baking tray. Place wonton wrappers on top of oil to coat the bottom. Spray a thin layer of oil on top of the wonton wrappers. Place wonton wrappers on a muffin tin or a cooking rack, to form the shape(s) you prefer. (I personally like to use a muffin tin because the chips will easily come off, and the shape is generally better for scooping sauce.) Bake the wrappers one batch at a time at 350 degrees F (180 C) until golden brown, about 12 minutes. While baking the wonton chips, combine all the ingredients for the mango salsa in a large bowl and mix well. Shredded chicken thigh. (Option 1) To assemble nachos, place wonton chips on a big plate, top with salsa and shredded chicken, and scatter crumbled cheese on top. (Option 2) Serve wonton chips, salsa, shredded chicken, and cheese separately. This works better if you’re hosting a party. The chips won’t get soggy if served separately. Notes 1. If you don’t feel like baking your own wonton chips, you could use tortilla chips instead.2. I cooked the pulled chicken in this braised pork dish, to infuse it with a rich flavor. If you don’t want to cook the pork at the same time, check out this braised chicken recipe to create pulled chicken. 3.3.3070
