Chili and Cheese Nachos

Dinner Tonight: Chili and Cheese Nachos

They moved my dad from the hospital to a rehab center, his breathing is getting worse and we are all fearing the worst. He's come back before but he's never been this bad. Just hope he pull through! Went to Meijer early this morning for Mom and myself. Excellent buy on Hefty Zip Freezer and Storage Bags, 50% off! Stocked up on some Jennie O Turkey Products also. Back home put everything away and off the see Dad at the rehab center. Got back and did some much needed straightening up and organizing of the kitchen cabinets. For dinner tonight Mom requested some Chili and Cheese Nachos. So guess what we are having, Chili and Cheese Nachos!

Make a bed of Tostito's Multi Grain Scoops, Hormel Turkey Chili with Beans, Black Olives, Green Olives, Sliced Jalapenos, all covered up  with a blanket of Sargento Shredded Mozzarella. That's Dinner Tonight!

I used Tostitos Multi Grain Scoops for my Chips. I love these with Salsa or just as snack by their
selves, they bake and hold their shape better than most chips. For my toppings I used 1 can of Mario Sliced Black Olives. Anyone that uses small cans of Sliced Black Olives know what a pain they can be opening sometimes. Not these, they come in a can with a pull tab About time! For my other toppings I sliced up some Green Olives, Mezzetta Deli Sliced Jalapeno Peppers, Hormel Turkey Chili with Beans, a few shakes (or more) of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce, and Sargento Reduced Fat Mozzarella. Put all that together and it’s nothing but good!

To prepare I preheat the oven at 400 degrees and sprayed a glass baking dish with Pam and layer everything in. I first opened up 2 cans of the Hormel Chili with Beans and heated them up in a sauce
pan, as it was heating I added a about 6 shakes of Frank’s Hot Sauce to it and mixed. After the Chili was ready I added 4 tablespoons of Chili to the baking dish, then I added my Scoops (Chips). I then added the Sliced Black Olives and Sliced Green Olives, the remainder of the Chili, Sliced Jalapeno Peppers (Love These), and then top everything the Cheese. Then just pop it in the oven 10 minutes or so until the Cheese had started to melt and everything heated. Nothing better on a cold Winter’s Day than a big plate of Chili Cheese Nachos! Also had an ice-cold Diet Dr. Pepper to drink. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Greek Yogurt.
