Grilled chicken Nachos

In my house, we’re all about hanging out in our backyard these days. It’s a little hot out and sometimes its much cooler to just sit in the shade of our backyard on the weekends. We’ll listen to some music while the kiddos play on the play set and we just chat. It really is nice.

I love to make easy snacks like this for hanging in the backyard on a summer afternoon. These grilled nachos are literally a meal unto themselves too. I’m also still considering that 12-step program for the Frank’s hot sauce addiction. I went to start this recipe (by throwing the chicken in the crockpot after work on Friday) and realized we were out. I sent Trevor a panicked text saying we were out of Frank’s and he knew right away that he had to pick some up on his way home from work (this is what almost 10 years of marriage gets you – he just gets me). He was also more than happy to fire up the grill for some nachos!

These grilled nachos are totally customizable to taste. I did peppers and red onions on top because grilled red peppers are just the best, but you can use whatever you’d like. The inspiration from these came from watching Food Network’s “The Kitchen” at the gym (yes, I watch Food Network while running on a treadmill) and Geoffrey used grilled scallions (also a great choice). I served the whole thing with a side of salsa from Healthy Living Market.

Note: I use this slow cooker method to cook my chicken with some Frank’s. You can make Buffalo chicken any way you’d like, but this is the easiest for me!

Buffalo Chicken Crescent Ring

Snacks | January 5, 2016 | By

Buffalo Chicken Crescent Ring I’ve been on a big Buffalo chicken kick so this Buffalo Chicken Crescent Ring is just everything that I’ve been looking for lately. It’s spicy yet buttery, and a highly addictive snack. So don’t make it for just yourself and your husband because its highly likely you’ll eat the good majority of it between the two of you (I might be speaking from experience on this one).

This recipe originally came from one of those Buzzfeed Tasty videos that are so popular on Facebook, and I was delighted it was a home run. I’ll definitely be trying more things from them. 

This recipe is perfect for your upcoming Super Bowl party and I’m definitely making it for Bryn’s upcoming birthday party. 

Read on for the recipe.
