Loaded Chicken Nachos, Money Saving Recipe, Chicken Crock Pot Recipes, Kid Friendly Recipes,The Best Chicken Nachos

Loaded Chicken Nachos by Tiffany

Have you  totally been guilty,  like I have, for buying loaded nachos with all the fancy smancy flavorful shredded meats, melted cheeses, etc. at your favorite restaurant? I’m going to save you some money, are you ready?! Best of all, you get your crock on! Whip that baby out from under the counter, I’ve got a tasty shredded chicken recipe for you! This shredded chicken recipe is very versatile and can be used for nachos, tacos, enchiladas or empanadas.

Sometimes I just need my ooey gooey cheesey chicken nacho fix. Especially on those hectic nights when I don’t feel like cooking up a big ol’ meal. Super duper easy and very very tasty! Plus, it’s a kid pleasing meal! Enjoy.

Notes***

You can totally replace the diced tomatoes and green chilies for 1 can (15oz.) of Rotel tomatoes instead. :)

This makes approx. 6 cups of shreded chicken breast. Use or freeze the remaider for later use.

This can be made kid friendly by just leaving out the toppings your child does not prefer.

Ingredients

  • 1 can (14 oz) diced tomatoes
  • 1 can (4 oz.) diced green chili’s
  • 1 heaping tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon chopped dried onion
  • 1 heaping teaspoon ground cumin
  • 3 boneless skinless chicken breast
  • sprinkle of chipotle chile pepper
  • tortilla chips
  • shredded cheese -Mexican, cheddar or pepper jack
  • 1 can (15oz.) black beans, drained and rinsed.
  •  diced onion
  • diced tomatoes
  • sliced olives
  • fresh chopped cilantro
  • sliced jalapeno peppers
  • sour cream
  • salsa

 

Directions

  1. In your crock pot or slow cooker, combine diced tomatoes, green chili’s, chili powder, dried onion, ground cumin; stir. Place chicken breasts in crock pot and scoop some of the tomato mixture on top of breasts. Sprinkle the tops with chipotle chili pepper. Turn crock pot on high, cook for approx. 3-4 hours or until breasts are easily shredded with a fork.
  2. Shred chicken breasts in crock with tomato mixture. Stir and set aside. Keep on warm until ready to use.
  3. On a large baking sheet, layer tortilla chips. Top with shredded chicken, cheeses, black beans and all your desired fixings, except for sour cream & salsa; repeat for second layer. Bake in a preheated 400 degree F. oven until cheese has melted. Approx. 8-10 minutes. Top nachos with sour cream,salsa and fresh chopped cilantro if desired.

Relish, how to make relish fresh from your garden, canning made simple, homecanning recipeHow to can Sweet Pickle Relish ~ Easy Summer Recipe

Each year we put in a garden, we watch the plants grow, and blossoms and eagerly  await the first picking of vegetables.  It seems like it takes forever for the first harvest, but then a few weeks later you have veggies coming out of your ears. More than you can eat, that is when it is time to start canning so you can enjoy your harvest all year long. Sweet pickle relish is easy to make, and a great way to use and preserve produce from the garden. It is also nice to bring as a gift when someone invites you over to a bbq as a thank you gift.

Ingredients:
1 quart chopped cucumbers (about 4 medium)
2 cups chopped onions (about 2 medium)
1 cup chopped sweet, green pepper (about 1 medium)
1 cup chopped sweet, red pepper (about 1 medium)
1/4 cup salt
3 1/2 cups sugar
1 tablespoon celery seed
1 tablespoon mustard seed
2 cups cider vinegar
I used the FRESHTech canning system for simple and worry-free canning, however you can also use the water bath method as well. Directions for water bath method are below.

Relish, how to make relish fresh from your garden, canning made simple, homecanning recipeDirections:

Prepare your jars by sterilizing
Preheat oven to 225 degrees F. Place jars on a baking sheet and bake in oven for at least 20 minutes to sterilize. Or you can put them in your dishwater and run on a sanitize hot cycle.
Fill a small saucepan with water and add jar lids and rings. Place on the stovetop over low to medium heat and bring water to 180 degrees. A candy or meat thermometer works great for this
Combine cucumbers, onions, green & red peppers in a large bowl. Sprinkle with salt and cover with cold water. Let stand for 2 hours.
Drain, rinse and drain thoroughly getting out as much water as you can.
Combine sugar, spices and vinegar in a large pot and bring to a boil
Add drained vegetables and simmer for about 10 minutes
Pack hot relish into your hot sterilized jars, leaving about ¼ inch at the top. Be sure to remove any air bubbles and secure your lids on the to tops of the jars.
This will make about 4 pints or 8 half pintsRelish, how to make relish fresh from your garden, canning made simple, homecanning recipe

Water Bath Directions:

Add jars to into large pan of boiling water using jar lifters. There should be about 1″ of water covering the jars. If there is too much, remove some with a ladle. Cover with lid.

Process for 10 minutes, then lift jars out using jar lifters. Set them on a clean towel to cool. Lids will be slightly concave (curving down in the center) when they are sealed.

Note: Unopened jars of pickles will last for 1 year, and opened jars will last in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.

pecan butterscotch rolls recipe

 I have posted my Butterscotch Sweet Roll Recipe before, I love them but they take 6 hours – overnight to make.  So I created a QUICK and EASY version that tastes just as good and it is so much faster.  Best part is they only take 5 ingredients to make!

Pecan Butterscotch Rolls Recipe ~ Quick and Easy with only 5 ingredients 

You will need

  • 1 Grands Flakey Biscuits 16 oz (cut the biscuits in half)
  • 1 small box “cook & Serve” Butterscotch Pudding powder plus 1/4 cup water (Not Instant! ! !)
  • 1 cube melted butter  (1/2 cup)
  • 1/2 c. brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. First take your butter and grease the bottom of a 9X9 inch baking dish.  Then sprinkle the nuts in an even layer over the bottom of the baking dish.  Take the raw biscuits cut in half and put them in rows, evenly spread on the bottom of the pan on top of the nuts.   I put them cut side up (s0 the rounded edge is facing down). Set aside and work on topping… in a medium sauce pan add butter, brown sugar, butterscotch pudding powder and water.  Stir over medium heat till butter is melted and it starts to boil.  As soon as it starts to boil take off heat and pour over the top of the biscuits in the pan.

Put in oven and bake for 17-24 minutes.  If you use a convection oven they should be done in 17 minutes, a standard oven will take a bit longer.   Take out of oven, at this point you can flip them onto a serving dish so they will be sticky side up.  OR you can serve them right from the pan.  Best when eaten warm.
