This is a staple at my daughter's home - especially if she is having
a large crowd over. The chicken slowly cooks in the crockpot
and at the end salsa, corn, beans, cream cheese and cheese are
added to make a one pot meal.
I made this when her 7 year old daughter was over and as I put it
together to take a photo she promptly told me I was doing it wrong -
that they just serve the chips on the side of the dip. I told her
everyone could do it the way they wanted, so we set up a
make your own nacho bar with chips, the chicken dip, salsa,
additional cheese, guacamole, ranch dressing, limes and cilantro
on the side. Of course she just had the chips and dip - separately!
It may not look like much, but the flavor is great.
Crockpot Chicken Nachos
5-6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (can be frozen)
1/2 C. brown sugar
1 can corn kernels, drained
1 can black or kidney beans, drained
2 C. salsa
8 oz. cream cheese, cubed
1 C. grated cheddar cheese or Mexican blend cheese
Place chicken and brown sugar in crockpot and
cook on high for 3-4 hours (if frozen) less if thawed
or until chicken shreds easily. Add remaining ingredients
and heat through for 15-20 minutes making sure that
the cream cheese blends in.
