I love nachos.
Really, loooooove me some nachos. 😉
And while I usually wait to have them at a restaurant, there's just no reason to make them at home (mine are every bit as good!) Today I tried out Slow Cooker Chicken Nachos (I've made Slow Cooker Nachos with Beef before), and goodness gracious, they were fantastic.
The best part? I had to take the picture for you all today (day time pictures just look so much prettier), so I've just devoured the yummiest lunch in complete quiet while my kids and hubby are all off at school and work for the day. Bliss.
Menu Planning Note: You can also find this recipe in our Slow Cooker Menu Planning Made Easy Set!
(I so love my sweet family when they're here, but some days a quiet home just feels so nice ~ is that awful?)
You could also use the chicken to make tacos, taco salad, enchiladas or just anything else ~ it turned out perfectly and is so simple to make! Here's the recipe so you can try it out too ~ just in time for the big game coming up next week. 😉
Slow Cooker Chicken Nachos
- 3-4 boneless skinless chicken breast
- 2 cans Rotel undrained

- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- 1 1/2 tbsp brown sugar
- tortilla chips
- 3/4 cup cheddar cheese

- Mix together garlic, onion, salt, pepper, brown sugar and Rotel in small bowl.
- Place chicken in crockpot and add Rotel mixture on top.
