Buffalo Chicken Nachos


This past weekend I made a large slow cooker batch of Buffalo Chicken (chicken breasts, hot sauce, butter, and garlic). I used 4-5 pounds of chicken breast so that I could make several meals out of one big pot of Buffalo Chicken. One simple meal was Buffalo Chicken over egg noodles with a sprinkle of cheese and crunchy onions. Another is a Buffalo Chicken pizza.

Verdict:

This was one meal we could all agree was simply perfect. Using the last bit of Buffalo Chicken and a bag of tortilla chips this dish was slightly spicy, crunchy and creamy with the addition of Colby-Jack and Blue Cheeses. Yummy!
