Yummy Crockpot Nachos

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.

(or as instructed by your resident expert!)

Set out desired ingredients and let everyone create
their own personalized nachos.

Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.

  2. Yum! All of those flavors together make for a delicious dip. What a great way to feed a crowd! :)

  6. It looks delicious to me, Jacqueline. I love this kind of food and it is perfect for a crowd. A nacho bar is a great summertime idea.

  7. C'mon, Grandma! Get with the program! You're supposed to serve it separate!!!!!!!! :-) It sounds really good, Jacqueline, with the chicken and the crunchy corn...very tasty! You have presented it beautifully - albeit incorrectly! - and I applaud you for taking a stand! :-) Grandkids...funny little entities, aren't they!?? Have a great afternoon!

  8. This looks fabulous!! I know my family would love it! anne

  9. Hi, Jacqueline. You've been on my mind lately, wondering why I haven't seen your posts lately (and missing them), so I went out searching for you :). I've been a follower for some time, but for some reason you don't show up on my blog list, so I'm doing it again, a different way so I don't miss your beautiful posts again. ~Zuni
