These are the best nachos and are the perfect appetizer for game day or they make a delicious meal any day! I love nachos anytime and these are really good.

The great thing about Nachos is anyone can make them. They are a quick and easy meal. I like cooking the chicken in the slow cooker because it makes the chicken fork tender and it’s easy to shred to serve on the nachos.

You can cook the chicken the day before and keep it in the refrigerator until you are ready to make the nachos. Then just reheat it before adding to your nachos.
