Game Day Snacks : 7 Layer Nachos Recipe

Whether your team is in the playoffs or not,  most football fans will still be watching the Big Game in February. I personally love watching the commercials and getting together with friends for yummy food. My family looks for food you would find in a sports bar versus some of my more healthy dips. One of their favorite things to order are loaded nachos. However, do you ever find yourself picking up just a warmed chip with nothing on it? I decided to make a 7 layer nachos recipe that will have all the ingredients evenly layered over the chips as well as be filled with flavor to know their socks off. It includes a layer of Chili, so it’s basically a meal with all the food groups!

If I had any leftover Chili in the freezer I would have used that but since I did not and needed the make the nachos for the same day, I purchased a can of Hormel Chili, No beans. I went with NO Bean Chili, because I was going to add a layer of non fat refried beans. You can grab a $1 off coupon here. 


Start by layering tortilla chips on an ovenproof platter or cookie sheet. I like the look of both blue and yellow chips.

Warm up the refried beans and the chili separately in the microwave. First layer the refried beans then the chili over the chips.
