Slow Cooker Southwest Chicken Nachos by Betty Crocker
1 package (16 ounces) mild Mexican pasteurized prepared cheese product with jalapeño peppers, cut into cubes
3/4 cup Old El Paso® Thick ’n Chunky salsa
1 can (15 ounces) black beans, rinsed and drained
1 package (9 ounces) frozen cooked Southwest-seasoned chicken breast strips, thawed and cubed
1 container (8 ounces) Southwest ranch sour cream dip
1 medium green bell pepper, chopped (1 cup)
1 medium red bell pepper, chopped (1 cup)
12 ounces large tortilla chips
1 Place cheese, salsa, beans and chicken in 3- to 4-quart slow cooker.
2 Cover and cook on Low heat setting 3 to 4 hours, stirring halfway through cooking, until cheese is melted and mixture is hot.
3 Stir in sour cream dip and bell peppers. Increase heat setting to High. Cover and cook about 30 minutes or until mixture is hot. Serve over tortilla chips. Topping will hold on Low heat setting up to 2 hours; stir occasionally.
In my opinion: These were good nachos. This was a good deviation from the normal chicken or ground beef Crock Pot recipes.
