Crock-pot chicken nachos recipe
Serves about 5
1-1/4 pounds chicken breasts
1 tablespoon olive oil
3/4 cup red onion, chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
2/3 cup yellow bell pepper, chopped
1/3 cup low-sodium chicken broth
28 ounces diced tomatoes with green chilies, undrained
2 tablespoons chopped green chilies
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped
Salt and pepper
2 cups tortilla chips
Shredded cheddar cheese
Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken to the pan and cook until browned on both sides, about 4 minutes.
Add onions, garlic, yellow pepper, chicken broth, green chilies, tomatoes, jalapeno and salt and pepper to a slow cooker. Add chicken on top and stir to mix.
Cover and cook on low for about 4 hours. Remove chicken from the slow cooker and shred, using two forks until you get bite-sized pieces.
Serve mixture over chips and top with cheese, guacamole and sour cream.
