This slow cooker Tex-Mex shredded chicken~loaded with kickin’ Southwestern seasonings~makes some of the best chicken nachos, burritos or sliders you’ll ever eat!
My family never gets tired of this slow cooker Tex-Mex shredded chicken. It can be used so many ways. From nachos to burritos to enchiladas to sliders, this chicken is supremely versatile and can be made to feed a small family to a large crowd.
One of our favorite uses for this chicken is nachos. I like to use paper takeout bowls to make it fun and easy to clean up. We just layer nacho chips, Tex-Mex chicken, and shredded cheese, and then we top it off with this amazing Chuy’s inspired jalapeño ranch dip. I always make this dip to serve with this chicken; it is the perfect accompaniment.
Another fun way to use this chicken is to make Tex-Mex sliders. I just put the chicken on slider buns and top with pepper-jack cheese and pour the Chuy’s dip on top.
You can make this chicken using fresh or frozen chicken (and frozen doesn’t have to be thawed beforehand). Leftovers are great for lunches the next day.
For a teen gathering, this chicken would be great served at a taco bar along with ground beef taco meat, cheeses, tomatoes, and all the fixings.
