Making classic Dad food “healthy” is one of those things I’ve always struggled with. Do we go all out because it’s Father’s Day or do we provide nourishing options because of how we care about their health?! In full transparency, I’ve usually opted for going all out because I don’t believe a single meal makes a long term impact on anyone’s health, but when we can boost nutrition in a classic like nachos and still have it taste AMAZING, I’m all for it. These Buffalo Hummus Chicken Nachos are the best of both worlds and couldn’t be any easier to throw together!
If you haven’t tried hummus nachos before, you’re missing out. And if you haven’t tried Lantana Food’s Buffalo Hummus, stop what you’re doing right now and go get yourself some- you’ll find them in the deli section at H-E-B (or easily add to your curbside order… #momlife)! This creamy dip is a white bean base packed with buffalo spice that all buffalo lover’s are going to go crazy for. It’s a medium level heat with just the right amount of buffalo kick without being too hot!
I also love that Lantana is headquartered in Austin, Texas! They’re definitely culinary trailblazers and I rely on them to keep my appetizers and snacks full of color and flavor without me having to do all the hard work. These nachos couldn’t be any more simple (seriously just a few minutes to throw together) yet they’re sure to impress the dad in your life. Or if you’re like me, I snuck a few bites before handing them over to Mr. KISS.
Lantana has 12 hummus flavors! Visit Lantanafoods.com to find them in a store near you!
KISS Tip: Swap out other Lantana hummus flavors (3-Pepper, Beet or Black Bean would all be great!) for a different spin on these hummus nachos. Try blue corn tortilla chips, grain-free chips or a different protein to customize the recipe even more!
Once you make these nachos and everyone falls in love with the buffalo hummus, you’ll probably start incorporating it into other things. It works great as a dip, spread on sandwiches or an ingredient in any recipe where buffalo is a good fit. If you make something creative with it, let me know in the comments!
Happy Father’s Day to all the dads, grandpas, stepdads, dads to be and father figures out there. Y’all matter to us more than you know!

3 cups (3/4 lb) of shredded chicken
1 1/2 cups cherry tomatoes, cut in half
1/2 cup chives, thinly sliced
1 small fresh jalapeños, seeded and sliced (optional)
Shredded lettuce for plate
* I like to grab the fresh tortilla chips from the HEB bakery or, if following grain-free, I like Siete grain free tortilla chips.
1.) Preheat oven to 350°.
2.) Spread tortilla chips evenly on a baking sheet.
3.) Spoon 1 1/2 containers of Lantana Buffalo hummus over the tortilla chips. Reserve the remaining 1/2 container for dipping.
4.) Sprinkle shredded chicken over the nachos.
5.) Place sheet pan of nachos into preheated oven and cook for 5 minutes.
6.) If you haven’t already chopped the tomatoes, chives and jalapeños, you can do so while the nachos are in the oven.

8.) Serve nachos on a bed of shredded lettuce and enjoy immediately!
