  5. Place in oven and bake for 8-12 minutes, or until cheese is melted and chips are starting to slightly brown. Remove from oven and top with jalapeno ranch. Serve immediately.

Recipe Notes

If you do add chicken to this, I would add it with the layers, probably under the cheese (this helps it stick to the chips).
