What can I make for an afternoon of football and beer?

This was the question my friend, Cyndy, asked me during a shopping trip today. At my house, nothing goes better with football and beer than nachos!  I shared this recipe with her, one that I had found over 10 years ago in “Men’s Health presents: A Man, A Can, A Plan.”  We have been making this recipe every football Sunday ever since…Bob’s favorite!

“Mondo Nachos”

1 can Hormel turkey chili with beans (I often substitute my own, homemade chili when I have it on hand)

1 block cream cheese (I use a 1/3 less fat)

tortilla chips

shredded cheese (I use a Mexican blend)


additional toppings, as desired (such as black olives, salsa, onions, cilantro, sour cream)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Microwave the chili and cream cheese on high for 1 minute increments until the cheese is melted, stirring after each minute.  Spread a layer of chips in a 13×9 pan -or- on a foil-lined jelly roll baking sheet.  Layer the chips, then chili, then shredded cheese, repeat.  Bake for 20 minutes, or until bubbly.  Top with additional toppings as desired.
