Campfire Chicken Nachos

Campfire Chicken Nachos make a great appetizer before a meal or a snack during a bonfire.  We just ate them for lunch.  This recipe is easy to increase or decrease depending on the number of people eating.

Ingredients:

Tortilla Chips
1 pound of boneless chicken tenderloins.  (you could just as easily use boneless skinless chicken breasts)
Your favorite mexican or southwestern seasoning
1 can of black beans, pinto beans, or chili beans
1 can of corn with chiles (sometimes called Fiesta Corn)
Shredded Cheese

Optional Ingredients:
Sour Cream
Salsa
Guacamole
Lettuce
Diced Tomatoes

Equipment:
Large skillet or pan (We used a pair of disposable foil pans)
Aluminum Foil
