Two things that San Franciscans love most are their Giants and their 49ers. Can you guess why I love football season? If you guessed food, you are right! I admit it…I enjoy the snacks more than the games. Shhhh!
Growing up, whenever a game was on TV, there was always plenty of snacks. Today I am sharing my favorite Game Day snack with you guys: vegetarian chili nachos! October just happens to be National Chili Month, so I thought this vegetarian chili nachos recipe would be a perfect way to celebrate. Whether you are watching the game at home during the week, or with a group of friends on the weekend, chili is a quick go-to option to satisfy anyone during the game. You can make it before the game starts, and throw it together and in the oven at halftime so it is ready by the time the game starts again.
The secret to my quick vegetarian chili nachos recipe is using Progresso Roasted Vegetable Chili with 3 Beans. It is a meat-free chili that includes tomatoes, carrots, corn, red and green bell peppers, poblano peppers, and onions, with pinto beans, black beans, and red kidney beans. I added some zucchini as well, so by omitting the whole cooking the zucchini thing, you can make your game day vegetarian chili nachos even faster. This is just a basic vegetarian chili nacho recipe, feel free to top with sour cream, avocado, salsa…anything you feel like!
