With the Big Game coming up, I wanted to put together a little recipe that would surprise and delight at the football party. Well, I think I succeeded because my husband said these were, “super good!” (He’s a man of many words…) So if you’re looking for a fun nacho recipe to serve up at your upcoming gathering, this one is definitely worth trying. Plus, it makes a good amount of servings so you’ll have enough for everyone that shows up!

Before I got started, I had to venture out for some tasty ingredients to use. I ran to Walmart since it’s only about a mile from my house, and because they have low prices too. My inspiration was a light chili since it’s so cold out right now (it is winter after all) and at the same time I wanted it to be something that everyone would enjoy.

So many goodies to choose from! But I narrowed it down to my family’s favorite nacho chips – TOSTITOS® and the matching salsa, the TOSTITOS® Medium Chunky Salsa. It’s the perfect base for creating my masterpiece of a nacho platter.

I also picked up a 12 pack of pop (Pepsi™ to be specific) and some candy as well to serve. SNICKERS® Minis and Skittles® were the perfect combination to keep everyone happy! And, I’m not gonna lie, they may have been cracked open before we even got them home. I just don’t know how that would happen…

Shhhh. There’s still plenty left if that’s what you’re thinking.

Game Day Cheesy Chili Nachos


  • 1 TOSTITOS® Original Tortilla Chips
  • 1 cup Mild Cheddar Cheese (shredded)
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1o oz guacamole
  • 1/2 cup chopped green onions
  • 2 packs of cheese dip (warmed to molten consistency)
  • 1 jar TOSTITOS® salsa
  • 1 can chili sauce or tomato sauce (optional)


  1. Brown ground beef in a medium skillet. Add in salsa and optional chili sauce until warmed and completely mixed.
  2. While the beef is cooking, arrange 1/2 bag of tortilla chips on a platter. I personally use the rest of the chips on the side for dipping but you’re free to do what you wish…
  3. On a separate burner, warm the packets of chili cheese until it’s to a pourable consistency.
  4. Spread chili cheese across your nacho chips. Then spread meat mixture on top.
  5. Top meat mixture with shredded cheese.
  6. Spread guacamole evenly on top of nachos.
  7. Add on your sour cream. I like to place it in the middle so that those who want it on their nachos can dip it on, and those who don’t want it on them don’t have to have it!
  8. Finally, sprinkle your chopped green onions and you’re ready to serve!
