  1. Preheat the oven to gas 7, 220°C, fan 200°C.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the chicken thighs, chipotle paste, 1 tbsp vegetable oil, the zest and juice of 1 lime, cumin and garlic until evenly combined. Transfer to a baking tray in an even layer and bake for 40-45 mins until the chicken is tender, lightly charred and cooked throughout. Use 2 forks to shred chicken into bite-sized pieces.
  3. While the chicken cooks, heat the remaining 1 tbsp oil in a large frying pan over a high heat. Add the sweetcorn and cook for 5 mins, tossing occasionally, until charred and starting to pop. Transfer to a bowl, allow to cool slightly, then mix in the black beans, avocado, red onion, the juice of 2 limes, chilli and 20g of the coriander. Set aside to infuse the flavours.
  4. To assemble, layer the tortilla chips, chicken and charred corn mixture on a large serving platter, with dollops of soured cream and scatter over the remaining coriander. Cut the remaining lime into wedges. Serve the nachos immediately with lime wedges on the side.

Tip: Swap your chicken for leftover turkey, simply toss it in the same ingredients and cook in the oven for 20 mins until piping hot.
