This Chicken Nacho Salad recipe makes an easy, quick meal. Get this family favorite recipe for chicken nacho salad that we love again and again.

Since we’ve been talking about simple recipes using my slow cooker chicken method, I just knew I had to share one of the quickest lunch or supper recipes that we just love – Simple Chicken Nacho Salad

Now, I’m going to go ahead and tell you, this is such a quick and easy recipe and definitely one that you can switch out ingredients to your family’s favorites. You can even pour melted cheese over the top instead of using a shredded cheese. But, since it’s been so hot around here lately, I wanted to go with this cold cheese version.

Here’s how I pull together this amazingly quick, delicious chicken nacho salad, a 10 minute meal.
