Chicken Chile Verde Nachos Recipe on #recipe #chicken

I like watching football. I would even consider myself a football fan. I grew up watching football with my dad and it’s always been a part of my life. Josh doesn’t like football, he LOVES it. I knew this when we started dating, but it didn’t really sink in until we were married.

We don’t just watch football on the weekends. We watch football on Thursday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday night. And good thing we have the NFL channel so we can watch all of the games at once! Oh, and we watch all of the highlights during the week…over and over. And don’t forget about Dan Patrick. We have to tune in to hear what Dan thinks. Oh, and we talk about football all week and trash talk on Facebook. That is the football I know now.

Do I still like football, yes? But sometimes it gets a little old. I will watch a Bears game any day of the week, but I really don’t need football in my life 24/7. I will give Josh credit though, he does know how to make great game day food. He recently invited some friends over to watch one of the MANY big games and he made Slow Cooker Chicken Chile Verde Nachos.

Josh made his famous Slow Cooker Chicken Chile Verde recipe to create some MEGA loaded nachos! Josh made the Slow Cooker Chicken Chile Verde the day before game day so it was ready to go.

  •  Preheat the broiler to high. Layer tortilla chips on a large baking sheet. Cover chips with shredded cheese. Place the nachos underneath the broiler, and cook until cheese is melted, about 2 minutes. Don't walk away because the cheese will melt quickly. Remove the nachos from the oven and top with chicken chile verde, tomatoes, avocado, green onions, cilantro, and sour cream. Serve immediately.
  • Note-the Slow Cooker Chicken Chile Verde will take hours to make so make sure you plan ahead. Josh usually makes the chicken chile verde the day before the big game and heats it back up in the slow cooker to make the nachos. Feel free to add your favorite nachos toppings! Olives, jalapeños, and salsa are also good!

  1. Maria, these nachos are perfect for game day and I love that they use slow cooker chicken chile verde!

  2. This looks amazing! I had a ton of left over meat from my own chile verde a few weeks ago but I never thought to put it over nachos! Will take out of the freezer and use like this! thanks for the recipe

  3. I’m adding these to one of our game day menus! We watch football 24/7 during football season too so I’m always looking for fun food to serve!

  4. These look incredible. I just became a football fan. My husband wishes I would be a hockey fan like you are a football fan.:)

  5. Oh man our husbands are one and the same. I consider myself a big football fan (Packers though!! 😉 ) but Andy will seriously have it on 24/7 if possible. 🙂

    I usually jet to the kitchen to bake or cook after my game is over so this will be perfect for our next game day! Love it!

  6. I never really considered myself much of a football fan. I grew up in a house full of women and we rarely had a game on. But once Ryan and I got married, the whole football thing started. He loves it. I’m warming up to it. My favorite part is the food especially when it’s food like these nachos. They look fantastic!

  7. Maybe it is how it came up on my computer, but the recipe for making the slow cooker chicken chili verde is not there!
