Ingredients

  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breast
  • garlic salt to taste
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 12 oz bottle buffalo wing sauce
  • 1/2 cup ranch dressing
  • 1/2 lb pasteurized process cheese spread cubed
  • 10 oz can diced tomatoes with green chiles
  • 12 oz bag tortilla chips

Instructions

  • Put your chicken in your 2.5 quart slow cooker (I used my 2.5-quart polka dot crock pot)
  • Sprinkle your garlic salt, salt and pepper all over your chicken
  • Cover your chicken with your buffalo sauce
  • Cover and cook on low for 3-4 hours, it is done when it is very tender
  • Shred your chicken with two forks or with a mixer, draining off your excess liquid after shredding
  • Add your ranch to your chicken and stir
  • In a saucepan over medium heat, put in your cheese and tomatoes and stir until your cheese is melted
  • Place a layer of tortilla chips on your plate, top with your cheese mixture, followed by your chicken mixture

Notes

  • The recipe says that it makes 6-8 servings, so I assume they mean it as an appetizer. However, in this house, we had it as our meal. So if you are using it for a main dish, you will get 3-4 servings out of it.
  • The reheated leftovers were deeeelicious, so this would be a perfect two night recipe for anyone who only needs to cook for one or two people.
  • I used my 2.5-quart polka dot crock pot for this recipe. The smaller portions worked perfectly for her smaller size. 
  • As with any of our recipes, calorie counts and nutritional information varies greatly depending on which products you choose to use when cooking this dish.
  • All slow cookers cook differently, so cooking times are always a basic guideline and should always be tested first in your own slow cooker and time adjusted as needed.
