Pardon me while I dive right into this pile of awesome. Like, literally…I just want to dive right in.
In recent weeks, I’ve become a bit obsessed with shredded buffalo chicken…and the 782 recipes that you can use it in. Like these nachos. Or enchiladas. Or wraps. Or on top of pizza.
The shredded chicken part is silly easy…chicken plus buffalo wing sauce plus Ranch dressing packet. Mix it all up in the slow cooker and let slow cook the day away.
(Also, works well on the slow cook function of the Instant Pot, or High for 20 minutes works too.)
With these nachos, let the chicken slow cook the day away, then shred it into the sauce and spoon onto the nachos! For the full flavor effect, don’t skip the crumbled blue cheese and chopped celery garnish.
