  1. To make pico de gallo, cut plum tomatoes in half and remove seeds. Dice

    cilantro, jalapeno, granulated garlic and salt. Cover and refrigerate.

    remove the avocado from the outer skin. Cut avocados into 1-inch dice and
    place in a large mixing bowl. Add red onions, plum tomatoes, Tabasco, lemon
    juice, granulated garlic, salt, cumin, cayenne pepper and cilantro. Mix
    well, using a potato masher or large spoon, but do not overmix.

  3. To make the nacho chicken mix, marinate chicken in fajita marinade
    overnight. Remove chicken from the refrigerator and grill until fully
    cooked. Let cool and then dice into 1/4-inch cubes. Sauté yellow onions in
    vegetable oil until translucent. Mix chicken with barbecue sauce and cooked
    onions. Refrigerate to cool.

  4. Heat oven to 375°F. Place nacho chips on a foil-lined baking sheet. In a
    microwave-safe container, microwave nacho chicken mixture until just warm.
