Directions

Whisk together cornstarch and 1/4 cup milk in a small bowl and set aside. Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a medium pan on medium high. Add onion and poblano, cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, 5-7 minutes. Stir in the remaining 1-1/4 cups of milk. Bring to a boil and cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly reduced, about 3 minutes. Whisk in cornstarch mixture and cook, whisking constantly, until it thickens, about 1 minute. Stir in cheese, lime juice, and 1/2 teaspoon salt; stir until cheese melts. Cover and keep warm. Heat the remaining 2 teaspoons of oil in nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Add cumin, chile powder and remaining 1 teaspoon salt, cook, stirring constantly until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the chicken and toss to coat. Cook until heated through, 2 to 3 minutes. Spread the chips on a platter, and top with the chicken and beans. Drizzle the nachos with the cheese mixture and top with cabbage, pico de gallo and cilantro. Serve immediately.
