Incredible Crockpot creamy chicken nachos are so easy to make! They’re really easy to recreate and it’s the perfect dump recipe for your crockpot (aka slow cooker).
Two of our favorite things are brought together in this recipe, Crockpot Creamy Chicken Nachos. We all struggle with making homecooked meals during a busy week so the Crockpot makes it so easy for us! Everything comes out fall-apart delicious and packed with flavor. This is another recipe for you to try with the family on Taco Tuesday or bring to a party as it produces a lot of chicken goodness.
Can I use other types of chips for the same great taste?
If you want to spice up your Nacho recipe then we recommend using Blue Corn Tortilla Chips. They are more filling and have a sweeter taste. Another big benefit of these Tortilla Chips, they have more protein and less starch than their plain counterparts. Scoops have become another staple for Mexican-Style dishes in the last 20 years or so. They are harder to use as a base layer for Nachos but great if you want to serve as a Chicken Nacho Dip and keep both of these ingredients separately until they meet again on your taste buds.
Do you have to cook the Chicken at all prior to adding it to the Crockpot?
When cooking different meats, such as beef in the crockpot, most of the time you brown the meat prior to adding it into the crockpot for optimal flavor. With this Creamy Chicken Nacho recipe, the chicken breast does not need to be cooked at all prior to adding into the crockpot. This way the seasonings melt into the meat they all cook together for the tastiest chicken you will ever have on your nachos.

Is it better to cook on low or high for optimal results?
We always recommend cooking items like this low and slow in the crockpot. Depending on the brand of your crockpot, the high setting can cook it faster than 2-3 hours and even dry out the chicken or burn the bottom. The longer it cooks at a low temperature the better results you will get. Everything is cooked to perfection and just falls apart deliciously.
How do I shred my own chicken if I leave it whole when adding to the Crockpot?
Once your crockpot finishes, remove the chicken and place it on a cutting board. Be sure to keep paper towels near as the juices will most likely leak off the side onto your counter. Use two large forks with the dip facing the opposite way. Place both forks in the center of the Chicken Breast and pull the forks apart from each other. Continue this method until everything is shredded into perfect little strands.
What sides go best with this Nacho recipe?
The world is your oyster when it comes to creating the perfect Nachos. Everyone’s taste buds are different and everyone can stand different layers of heat. The most popular toppings would be sour cream, which adds a cold and creamy touch to the hot Nachos. Jalapenos, cilantro, avocados, or black olives are traditional options. Grab your favorite taco sauce and pour it on top for a boost of heat.
