One of my favorite local restaurants, Zeppelins, has the best chicken nachos. Their famous dish inspired me to create my own but with the added convenience of using the slow cooker. I always use fresh cilantro because it's economical and it makes the dish pop with flavor. —Natalie Hess, Cedar Rapids, Iowa
