Easy Spicy Slow Cooker Nachos Recipe

I love spicy foods! I haven’t always, to be honest, but in the last few years I have acquired a taste for that sharp, delicious flavor that makes my eyes water! Maybe it is because the serving mac and cheese and carrots phase of my children’s childhood has finally passed. Maybe it is because I just decided to add a little more flavor to recipes. Either way, I have been turning my regular recipes into spicier versions with great success! One side effect to kicking them up a notch, though, is heartburn! I started to experience it when I was pregnant with my girls but now feel it when I have food that I have taken to another level. There are 24-hour heartburn products that have helped tame the pain of heartburn.  I have taken my foods back to the spicier version and am satisfying my cravings for that kick once again! Like my Easy Spicy Slow Cooker Nachos Recipe! I have a toned down version but this one takes the flavor to a whole new level!

I love to use pita chips instead of tortilla chips for nachos. They hold up better, don’t get soggy and have that little salt flavor that takes nacho toppings over the top!

The kids, friends and anyone else who loves flavorful foods will LOVE these nachos!
