I never thought to make the BBQ Chicken nachos myself. However, the other day, I saw a blog post by Baked Bree where she made them, and she cooked the chicken in the SLOW COOKER!!! So naturally, I needed to try them! And they were not only a hit, but they were delicious!!

|3 massive chicken breasts, sliced thin to make 6 pieces total, all cooked up in the crock pot|

For toppings on the Nachos, I used the following:
- Chopped Scallions
- Chopped Cilantro
- Chopped Tomato
- Onions & Peppers - chopped and sautéed so they're soft, but still with a little bite to them (I'm not a huge fan of raw onions)
- Shredded Cheddar Cheese (I bought a block of cheese and shredded it myself - it makes a huge difference than when you buy pre-shredded cheese!)

- Corn Chips
- Shredded Chicken
- Onions, Peppers, Tomatoes, Scallions, and Cilantro
- Shredded Cheese
I layered my nachos (2 layers) on a baking sheet lined with Aluminum Foil. Once assembled, I stuck the sheet under the broiler for about 5-8 minutes, until everything was heated through and the cheese was melted.
Serve with Sour Cream and Guacamole! And Sangria!!
