Got any leftover chili or some cans of beans laying around? Then make this delicious, but messy, tray of nachos. Very simple to make and can be done in minutes. Nachos are not just for an appetiter or for parties; they can be a full-on meal. This recipe is very decadent and can be shared or eaten solo!

Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 10 minutes
Serves: 1-4

Tortilla or nacho chips (I used jalapeño-lime chips)
Leftover chili or one can of red kidney beans, drained and cooked to can instructions
1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup of spredded pepper jack cheese
either a jar of or homemade nacho cheese sauce
1 large tomato, diced
1 romaine lettuce shredded
1 scallion thinly chopped
1 avocado, pitted and diced
1 jalapeño, finely chopped
 a few cilantro leaves, finely chopped

-layer a baking tray with wax paper
– mix the veggies together in a bowl and sprinkle a bit of salt to make some salsa
-add a layer of tortilla chips to the tray; add a scoop of chili or beans evenly across; drizzle some nacho cheese sauce and add some of both sprinkled cheeses; continue to layer this way to make as much nachos as you would like
-once the desire amount is made, top with an extra sprinkle of cheese, then turn your oven broiler on high. Cook the nachos until the cheese has melted.
-Once they are done, top with the salsa
