Easy Nachos Recipe

Everyone loves Taco Tuesday, but why limit that tasty goodness to one day? My busy family loves this easy nachos recipe just about any day of the week. And what’s even better is the toppings can be modified for the more…choosy…members of your family.

If you’re looking for a fantastic start to the weekend, throw some chicken in your slow-cooker before work and you’ll be eating nachos just minutes after you get home. Don’t have any chicken breasts thawed out? Don’t worry. You can put the frozen ones right in the slow-cooker and head off to work.

Easy Nachos Recipe

One of my favorite treats to enjoy when out to dinner is a big plate of classic nachos. But when restaurants aren’t in the budget, making them at home is just as tasty and very easy on the wallet!

TIP: Skip the store-bought guacamole and see how easy it is to make your own. It’s so worth it!
