Easy Chili Nachos

Easy Chili Nachos


This makes a wonderful quick late-night snack, and it's a great way to use up any leftover chili I freeze some of my chili just to make this recipe --- I sprinkle finely chopped jalapeno peppers on top of second layer of cheese, but that is only optional add them on if you like heat --- all ingredients can be adjusted to suit taste. Prepare a double recipe in two separate pie plates if you are serving more than 6 people. Prep time does not include making the chili --- this is very good!
