When I made Karen's Chili, I had quite a lot left over, since it makes quite a big batch. I had originally planned to freeze it in small containers, but then I realized how fabulous it would be if I made nachos with it! Hello instant party! Seriously, if there was ever a party food, this would be it. Just put a big tray of nachos in the center of the table and watch your guests devour them. This is another one of those "just throw it together" dishes and it's always a big hit!

Tostitos round tortilla chips
shredded cheddar cheese

Place chili in microwave or a small sauce pot and heat until bubbly. Heat your oven to 350F. Place chips in a single layer on a large tray or baking dish. Spoon chili over the chips. Sprinkle cheddar cheese over chili. Place in oven for about 10 minutes or until cheese melts. Serve immediately. Simple, right?

This is the base idea, but you can go even further by adding chopped jalapenos or other kinds of cheeses before you bake them. Also, try serving them with sour cream and Jason's Guacamole. If you don't have time to make homemade chili, then use a can of Hormel chili and some refried beans. Clearly the homemade chili is better, but it'll still be awesome and your guests will love it!
