Crockpot Southwest Chicken Nachos

Crockpot Southwest Chicken Nachos

Many people LOOOOVE using their crockpot. And I will admit that some days I love using my crockpot too. But for some reason almost every single crockpot recipe I try comes out looking not so good. Most of them taste good, but before I put the meal on my table I usually have to explain to my husband that this is “a crockpot meal”…they are easy and delicious but not always so pretty! I received a fun package from Citizen Chef with a few of their sauces. I have the perfect recipe for their Pan Asian Orange Sauce that I will be posting soon …
