Crock Pot Creamy Chicken Nacho Sauce

So, I can hardly believe it, but it’s football season once again as of this past Sunday…and what does that mean to me?  Well, since I’m strictly all about the food when it comes to game days (and most other things in life), this season just gives me the perfect excuse to whip up some fun and fabulous eats.  Dips and appetizer foods are definitely my favorite when it comes to game day menus – homemade nachos being at the top of the list.  They’re great when you’re actually at the game , but they are even better in the comfort of your favorite living room chair or couch.

This is my jazzed up version of a classic queso dip taken to a heartier level and it is perfect for football games, tailgating parties or for taking along to a pot luck since it is made in a slow cooker and can be kept warm.  This is a serious crowd-pleaser that is served hot as a dip, spooned over crisp tortilla chips nacho-style, or rolled up in a warm flour tortilla!  We ate it both ways and it was delicious.  Confession: it was our entire dinner one night in nacho form :)

If you’re looking to add a little personal touch to this, feel free to add ingredients as you see fit.  Some diced peppers or green chilies can really add some kick to the mix.  Mr. Wishes is not a huge fan of spicy food so I left those out.

 It’s time to step up your catering game for football Sundays and make this nacho sauce :)

Do you have any great “sports food” recipes?

    have made the Peach Crumb Bars several times….a HUGE hit! Especially when you pick your own peaches as we did at Green Acre Farms on Latta Road. Scrumptious!!!

      Thanks so much, Amy!

    Love this idea! It’s simple. Different but would totally be a crowd pleaser. I must make this. I don’t think I have any “sports food” recipes. Usually we head to someone else’s house for a few football games and I always bring dessert. Can dessert be a “sports food”? Hehe.

  27. September 15, 2013 at 10:21 PM #

    I definitely need a crock pot!! This looks so super fantastic!

  28. September 17, 2013 at 10:19 AM #
