SRC: Fiesta Chicken Nachos

Well, the month of May seemed to have the ability to both drag along and speed by at the same time. I don’t know how that works exactly, but I’m both perplexed and impressed. It’s been another crazy month. And by crazy I’m now pretty much just referring to the fact that I still seem to be surprised by that. Seriously. What was I thinking?

And speaking of what I was thinking, how is it that we have so much planned and packed for this summer that it hasn’t even started for us yet and I kind of feel like it’s already over? I’m just a mess of contradictions right now.

You know what’s not a contradiction? This month’s recipe from Cupcakes with Sprinkles for my Secret Recipe Club post! I mean, what’s not to love about throwing some chicken, corn, black beans and sauce into a slow cooker and walking away, then coming back to infinite possibilities?!

The original recipe that Meghan over at Cupcakes with Sprinkles shared was for Fiesta Chicken Burritos and used a few different ingredients. The recipe seemed to be one that lends itself toward adapting to what you have on hand, so that was exactly what I did. Which also happens to be what got me thinking about all the different ways this chicken could be used.

Meghan has managed to collect a veritable treasure trove of recipes over on her blog so it was fun to browse through and get ideas. Plus she definitely has a sweet tooth like me, but I was stumped for dinner ideas and this one definitely looked like it would hit the spot. And it really did. We absolutely loved the nachos!

I mean, obviously burritos would be a total winner here, but my kids just aren’t really fans. They do love nachos though, so that was a natural fit, but so would some other ideas have worked that I can’t wait to try in the future.

I still couldn’t stop thinking about how else I could use this though – enchiladas, flautas, quesadillas, taco salad, thinned into a soup, as pizza topping… I can’t even remember all the ideas, but those are the ones that stick out. How would you use it?

Here I am eating an egg white pita for dinner and then I see your nachos. Totally makes my dinner pale in comparison.

I love chicken, corn, black beans together – and recipes you can adapt to use what you have on hand. These nachos look so good!

Yum, Holly. That sounds so good. We have nachos all the time, but I’m always wanting to change them up. Going to have to make these.

Hello Holly,

This was my first time visiting your blog, via pinterest. I used your recipe for the shredded chicken mix for a DIY Nacho Bar at my bff’s birthday party this week – and it was a HUGE HIT. Not to mention, incredibly easy! Super simple instructions are always great. I’m not usually a commenter but I wanted to say ‘Thank You’ šŸ™‚

Kimberly
