Chicken, Bean and Rice Nachos

You can't go wrong with this slow-cooked sensation. Tender shredded chicken is matched up with black beans, Mexicorn, rice and cheese, then served with tortilla chips. When you're craving nachos but need more than a snack, this makes one zesty dinner.—Barbara Schweitzer, Chesapeake, Virginia

    I couldn't find Mexicorn so just used regular corn. Omitted cheese & chips. Quite delicious! Fit fine in my 5 quart slow cooker.- Theresa

    Love the versatility of this recipe. Leave out the rice and you can use it to fill tacos or enchiladas. I am always asked for the recipe whenever I take it to share.
