Tortilla chips topped with a fantastic chili made from five beans, steak and sausage makes this the easiest (and tastiest!) nachos I make. My kids ask for these at least once a week and they insisted I take a picture and blog their favorite lunch today. They made me grin; so of course I obliged them. My boys can assemble this lunch themselves and it makes them very proud!
You can make these nachos with your favorite chile or even canned chili. However, I keep our favorite Five Bean Chili with Steak and Sausage in the freezer in two cup containers, just for this meal.

(printable Five Bean Chili recipe)
2 cups of your favorite chili, we LOVE this recipe (cold from the refrigerator works fine)
2-3 cups shredded Mexican cheese blend
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with a silpat mat, parchment paper or aluminum foil. Spread tortilla chips across the baking sheet and drop spoonfuls of chili all over the chips. Sprinkle cheese generously across the chili and chips. Bake 8-10 minutes, just until the cheese is melted. Enjoy!
