Crock Pot Creamy Chicken Nacho Sauce
This slow cooker chicken nacho sauce is very simple to make, but very flavorful with a Tex-Mex flair. Great to take to potlucks along with a bag of tortilla chips and topped with avocado. Perfect football food appetizer!
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 like this nacho sauce. 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?
- 2 (10 oz) cans cream of chicken soup
- 1 (14 oz) can black beans, drained
- 1 (14oz) can Rotel
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 2 large chicken breasts
- Salt & Pepper, to taste
- Place everything in the crock pot and cook on low for 4-6 hours (or high for 2-3). Remove chicken breasts and shred with a fork, then return to crock pot. Stir in 1 additional cup of cheddar cheese right before serving.
- Serve over tortilla chips and garnish with whatever you like: sour cream, cheese, avocado, cilantro, etc.

LOVING, Ashley! So perfect for football season!
Thanks!! It sure is!
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!!!

I have already pulled my crock pot out for the season! This looks great and i love how you can throw things in and just leave and when you come back it is all done!
Yes – they are great!! I use mine all year round.
I have been craving nachos for days now! Are they a suitable dinner substitute? 🙂
Oh I totally ate them for dinner the other night 🙂

Tomorrow there is a very important soccer game and this is the perfect dish for watching it with friends.

It does make a LOT but if you have a huge crowd, I’d double it!

It’s always crock pot time over here at my house haha
This is my kinda game food, wow!! I truly love this idea, Ashley, thanks for posting!!
Nachos are probably my favorite game day treat. Your nacho dip looks AMAZING and I love that you used the crock pot for it.
Thanks, Christin! Makes life so much easier!
This looks so easy! And who doesn’t love nachos? Very creative – and tasty looking! – dish. Good stuff – thanks.
My Mother in Law is a HUGE football fan. We’re going to watch the game with her this weekend. I have no doubt everyone there would love this dip! Thank you for sharing it!
Wow this looks super creamy and yummy. My husband would love this specially now while he seats on front of the TV and watch football all day 🙂
I love crock pot recipes so much! These nachos look AMAZING!
I love crock pot recipes – it reminds me to haul out that appliance and use it more often! Great game day snack!
I super love nachos! Such an easy comfort food! Now feed me, I’m hungry 🙂
Ooooh, these look so good! Totally want to give them a try!
I adore nachos! This looks divine. Love that creaminess. Perfect snack when I’m having a cocktail. 😉 Delicious!
Thank you, and yes – I definitely think so!
You had me at nachos! I love them and these ones look really delicious!
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.
I definitely need a crock pot!! This looks so super fantastic!
All sorts of creamy deliciousness over here at Wishes and Dishes! Cannot wait to make this Ashley. My hubby will LOVE this! Perfect for noshing on during hockey and football season. Thanks ever so much for sharing, girl!
My wife just sent me this. I’m glad I’m a husband who knows how to take a hint! ???
