So if you’re like me, in a few hours you’ll be heading to somebody’s Super Bowl party or will be having somebody over for yours.  And if you’re really like me, the party that you’re going to is a potluck and you’ve been asked to bring something to snack on.  And if you’re really really like me, your skills are somewhat limited in the kitchen and you’re tempted to run by the store, pick up a package of Oreos, and call it a day.

Stop it!! You’re a grown @$$ man or woman and your addition to the Super Bowl soiree should reflect that!  Just because you’re on a first name basis with the owner of your local take-out spot, doesn’t mean you can’t whip up something that’s simple (3 ingredients), cheap ($10), and quick (5 minutes).  Here’s what I’m making:

Bachelor Chili Cheese Nachos


2–15 oz cans of Hormel Chili (with or without beans)













1—15 oz container of Tostitos Salsa Con Queso (I chose “medium” spiciness, but if you like your ish hot, do you)













1—Bag of Tostitos Restaurant Style tortilla chips











1. Open the 2 cans of chili and pour them into a saucepan (at least I think that’s what it’s called. lol.)










2.  Pour the entire container of Sals Con Queso into the saucepan










3.  Turn the burner (the thing on top of the stove that you cook stuff on) to medium heat and set the oven timer for 5 minutes.  (If you’ve got an old school oven without a timer, just use a watch or your cell phone).










4.  Stir that mess up.  (You’ll wanna stir it about 3 times within the 5 minutes)



















5.  After the timer goes off, TURN OFF THE HEAT on the burner.  

6.  Get you a plate, put some tortilla chips on it, and pour the chili cheese dip over the chips.  You should probably test it before you take it to be eaten by an entire group of people at the Super Bowl Party.  (And if you’re scared to taste it, let your roommate test it out.  If they get sick, they probably won’t sue you because they know that if they did, you won’t be able to pay your half of the rent).



















7.  After all is clear, put your chili cheese dip in a plastic container, cover it, grab your bag of tortilla chips, and head out the door.

8.  If everyone loves your nachos when you get to the party, tell them that you got the recipe from thisAMthisPM.wordpress.com and tell them to pay me a visit.  But if someone starts complaining of an upset stomach after eating your nachos… don’t mention my name or this blog.

Total time: 5 minutes       Total cost: $10

Have fun watching the game.  I’m gonna head out to the party in a few, but  to be honest, I don’t really care who wins the mug cause if THE DALLAS COWBOYS aren’t playing, it’s not really a game anyway!
