This is the flatbread America has been waiting for. We've combined the crunchy essence of nachos, and the cheese, with the softer, toasted nature of flatbreads, with cheese. With a feisty jalapeño salsa and diced chicken on top, we're serving up joy on a naan, a meal that will satisfy from sea to shining sea.
Tip: Easiest way to remove jalapeño stems and seeds: remove ends, then hold upright. Carefully slice the pepper into four pieces, leaving stem and seed to discard.
