Meatless Chili Nachos
Simple, delicious and perfect for a game day! Don’t you just love nachos? If I am being honest, I could seriously eat this whole tray of nachos. I love them as much a much family. This time I tried something different or new and kids seems to love it, so when I told them “it’s meatless”, they could not believe it! It was really tasty.
Pizza and nachos are a stable on Sunday when we watch football, and I wouldn’t change it for anything. With that being said, sometimes I serve chicken wings or sliders as well. Of course, regarding this recipe, you can totally double this.

You can do this ahead and put together when it time to entertain. If you do not want this meatless, use ground beef or turkey and add chili beans of your choice. IF you are using ground beef, make sure to drain any excess oil before adding beans and salsa. For vegan cheese, you may try "GO VEGGIE" Vegan products are dairy and lactose-free and do not contain casein, eggs, or gluten. If you don't want to use chili beans, well, you can use black beans or any that you like or have on hand.
