Superbowl Recipes! Chicken Nachos!

I could care less about football except for the EATING that is involved. I have been very good after my juicing and eating right, so now I'm going to be BAD.

I found these on Pinterest and am excited to give them a whirl!





First Slow Cooker Chicken Nachos from Bev Cooks! 




Slow Cooker Chicken Nachos:

* 2 chicken breasts
* 1 jarred roasted red pepper
* 1/2 cup favorite salsa
* 1 tsp ground cumin
* 1 tsp chili powder
* 2 cloves garlic, minced
* 1 large pinch coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
* 1 (14.5 oz) can pinto beans, drained and rinsed
* 1/2 cup chopped cilantro leaves
* 1 scallion, finely sliced
* 1/2 avocado, diced (or the whole thing if you want!)
* 1 lime, for the juice
* 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
* 1/2 bag favorite tortilla chips
In a slow cooker, place the chicken, roasted red pepper, salsa, cumin, chili powder, garlic, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook on high for three hours. (Or low for six.)
After three hours, take two forks and shred the chicken right in the cooker. Add the pinto beans, toss to combine and cook an additional hour. *if at this time you feel it needs to be a little more liquidy, by all means, add a leetle more salsa.
Arrange the chips on a large platter. Spoon the chicken and bean mixture over the chips. Sprinkle the cheese over the chicken. Pop the platter under the broiler for a couple of minutes to the get the cheese all browned and bubbly.
Remove the platter from the oven with your bare hands (kidding!) and top with chopped cilantro, scallions and diced avocado. Give a good squeeze of lime juice over the whole dang thing.

Then I found this recipe so we had to make BOTH!

I am with you! I am about the food! Right now I have barbecue chicken in the crock pot, I am boiling chicken breasts to make buffalo chicken dip, I have made gluten free orange brownies (from lissa at keepitsimplekeepitfresh.blogspot.com), and who knows what else might happen!

Enjoy!
