What you Need for Slow Cooker Shredded Chicken Nachos
Chicken Breasts or Thighs
1 Can Rotel
Your Topping choices will take your nachos from good to totally amazing. We love to layer the cheese, don’t scrimp. Every chip deserves some cheese. I personally think black beans are extra delicious. Here is a list of toppings we like to use..
- Shredded cheddar cheese
- Sliced jalapeno
- Fresh chopped tomatoes
- Black beans
- Sour cream
- Avocado or Guacamole
I have been eating a little bit more dairy-free and Paleo so I love my shredded chicken on a lettuce wrap and just omit the cheese and sour cream! This chicken is so yummy I don’t even miss the cheese. Delish!
