Chicken Crockpot Nachos

I have had a CRAZY busy week this week, and Tuesday was by far the craziest day. I knew when I woke up on Tuesday morning that I wasn’t going to have time to stop working to make dinner, so I planned ahead and pulled out my new crockpot to make Chicken Crockpot Nachos.

In less than five minutes on Tuesday morning, I had dinner prepped and ready to serve for Tuesday night.

This is seriously one of the easiest “dump” recipes for your crockpot, and it can be completely tailored to your family’s taste preferences.

Chicken Crockpot Nachos - Ingredients

Crockpot Ingredients:

  • 2 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts (mine were frozen)
  • 1 bag of frozen corn (or two cans if you prefer)
  • 2 cans of black beans (drained)
  • 2 cans of crushed tomatoes (one drained, one with juice)
  • Spices to suit your palette (suggested spices: taco seasoning, chili powder, salt, pepper, etc.)

Cook on LOW for 5-6 hours or HIGH for 3-4 hours. Shred chicken with a fork before serving.

Chicken Crockpot Nachos - Cooking


Serve with tortilla chips and sprinkle with shredded cheese.

Note: I didn’t season my chicken crockpot nachos, and I wish I had. Also, I didn’t use two cans of beans or tomatoes, but I definitely will next time I make it. If you’re serving more than four people (this easily feeds that many), just increase your ingredients proportionately.

    Wow! and even faster to throw together if you used salsa instead of plain tomatoes… Hmmm… a little chopped onion for me. This will rescue us on my next all-out Writing Day. Thanks for sharing!

    • Ashley Pichea

      It was PERFECT to rescue us this week when I had ZERO time to stop for dinner. Enjoy!!

  • Sarah Bouvier

    My crockpot nachos are cooking right now. I was a little confused about the tomatoes. The recipe said crushed but the picture showed diced and the picture with the already cooked nachos showed small chunks of tomatoes. I used petite diced and am hoping I didn’t make a mistake. Can’t wait foe them to be done. Yummy!

    • Ashley Pichea

      I thought I used crushed, but I might have used diced? I think either would work fine though… I’d love to know how yours turned out!!

  • Linda

    Absolutely amazing. Even better warmed up the next day even though there wasn’t much left. These are on my favorites list.

    • Ashley Pichea

      I’m glad you enjoyed them! And I agree… they make great leftovers! :)

  • Beth

    Thanks for posting! Making these right now.

    I do this but instead of the canon tomatoes and spices, I just use a jar of salsa

    Was the chicken frozen when you put it in the crockpot or did you thaw it out first?

    • Ashley Pichea

      Yes. If you choose to use fresh/thawed chicken, you can cut down your cooking time.
