Meatless Chili Nachos

Meatless Chili Nachos Recipe

Meatless Chili Nachos are 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.

It’s just so comforting and delicious. We just adore finger foods.

This time I tried something different or new, and my kids seems to love it.

When I told them “that chili nachos was meatless”, they could not believe it. It was really tasty.

To be honest, I was impressed myself, although I do not need much to get impressed. I am a simple gal.

Pizza, nachos, finger foods, charcuterie and cheese boards are stable on Sunday when we watch football.

I would not change that for anything. With that being said, sometimes I serve chicken wings or sliders as well.

Regarding this recipe, you can totally double this. Yes, you can!

Well, I totally did, of course. I always have to double recipes because my family do not use serving sizes. They stop when they are full. I rarely have any leftovers, even on Thanksgiving.

On the other hand, I am the one who reads labels all the time. I know, that’s a flaw of being chubby as a kid and now a food blogger.

Anyhow, if you try making this one, I have a feeling that you will like it. It is really refreshing especially if you have vegetarian family member or a friends coming over.

  • 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.
