This is great for a party. You can make it and then put in a Crock Pot to keep hot.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This is an easy and flavorful shredded chicken for your nachos. It has the typical seasonings you expect from a Tex-Mex dish. The amount of spice can be controlled by the heat of the salsa you use. Very versatile, this can be used for nachos but also tacos and burritos.
