I love me some nachos, but I think my tastes have acquired as I have matured with age. Gone are the days of topping a mountain of cheese on some chips and nuking them for 60 seconds.
Ok. I lied. I could always go for some plain cheese nachos. But sometimes you’ve got to take your game to the next level and get a little fancy with these shredded chicken nachos!
This recipe is great to do on the weekdays. The chicken can be thrown in the crock pot in the morning, and by the time everyone is home you’ve got yourself some shredded chicken ready to place on nachos. The chicken has some heat to it, but it’s nothing overwhelming so it’s safe for the spice-intolerant members of the family too!
Prep is pretty easy for this meal. Toss all the chicken crock pot ingredients in. Let it slow cook for about 6-8 hours. When you get home, prep the rest of the ingredients, pre-heat the oven and you’re ready to rock!
This is just a suggestion, if you have time to do a full guac by all means go for it. But mixing in some pico de gallo (especially mine if you have it on hand) into some ripe avocados gives you guacamole with no prep work and little mess to deal with in 60 seconds!
When cooking this, I placed these on plates that could handle being in the oven. This makes cleanup and serving a lot easier so if you have plates and room in the oven to do it this way I highly recommend it.
Feel free to add any other toppings into this recipe and be sure to let me know how you made them!
