For the Slow Cooker Chili Con Carne:

For the Beef Nachos:

  • Slow Cooker Chili Con Carne
  • 1 bag tortilla chips (16 ounces)
  • 3 cups shredded “Mexican style” cheese blend

Optional Toppings:

  • 1 cup salsa
  • 1 ripe avocado, chopped
  • 1 chopped tomato
  • 1/4 cup sliced black olives
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onion
  • 1/2 cup sour cream



    • Pour the enchilada sauce and apple butter in a crock-pot. Place the beef roast in it, followed by sliced onions, garlic, salt, and red pepper. Cover and turn the crock-pot on high for 4-5 hours, until the beef is falling apart.
    • Using two forks, shred the beef roast into the sauce, and leave on warm until ready to serve.

    For the Beef Nachos:

    • Preheat the oven to 350 degree F. Arrange the tortilla chips on a large rimmed baking sheet. Sprinkle half the cheese over the top and bake for 3-5 minutes to melt the cheese.
    • Scoop the chili con carne over the chips, and sprinkle the remaining cheese over the hot beef. Top with any additional toppings and serve immediately.
