SLOW COOKER CHICKEN NACHOS

April 17, 2018

First let’s address that at no point are tortilla chips put in the slow cooker. Making meats flavorful is (next to soups) my favorite way to use the crock pot. So with lots of flavor and some black beans you have toppings for fully loaded nachos. Just add shredded cheese and chips.

Okay but then when I want to add a little extra I also have fresh red onion, jalapeño, cilantro, and green onion. That’s kind of my standard nacho spread.

Also I am doing white cheddar for some flare but when we are having a more utility meal this is shredded chicken plus reg cheddar plus chips and you’re weeknight dinner royalty.

    This looks yummy! I just got a slow cooker and I have never used it! So please tell me, do you use raw chicken breasts? Frozen?

    • Rachel Schultz

      Frozen or refrigerated raw breasts are both great!
