Family Style Nachos

Tortilla Chips
Shredded Cheese

Topping ideas:
Chicken (cooked & cubed)
Black or refried beans
Onions and/or peppers

Preheat oven to 350. On a foil lined cookie sheet spread a layer of tortilla chips. Lightly top with a layer of cheese followed by desired nacho toppings. Add a 2nd thin layer of cheese to the top and place in the oven until cheese melts (about 5 mins). Serve with desired dips (salsa, guacamole, sour cream, etc).

We simply place the cookie sheet on a trivet in the middle of the table. Each person gets their own plate and grabs their own serving of nachos from the middle. This is a fun, easy crowd pleaser :)

BBQ Chicken Sandwiches

inspired by the Red Robin Whiskey River BBQ Chicken Burger

Chicken Breasts (boneless, skinless)
BBQ Sauce
Lettuce, shredded (optional)
Tomato (optional)
Cheddar Cheese, sliced (optional)
Mayo or Ranch Dressing
Crispy Onions/Onion Straws

Place frozen chicken breasts in crockpot and top with a bottle of BBQ sauce. Cook 4 hours on high or 6 hours on low. Using 2 forks, shred chicken about 20 minutes before serving.

Assemble sandwiches with desired ingredients.

The chicken can be cooked on a BBQ grill or cooked in the oven and then topped with BBQ sauce, but we have found that our favorite, most flavorful (and easy) way is in the crockpot. You can make this for as many as needed...we even made a HUGE batch in a roasting pan for the boys 1st birthday party.
