The final recipe for my Halloween week is not a sweet one! Because let’s face it, no one wants to send their kids out trick-or-treating on an empty stomach. The outcome of that would definitely not be good. So here’s something to serve your kids before they go out – and if you want it to be more hearty, throw some spicy, comforting chili on top! That’s my plan for Halloween night!

These are monster nachos because they’re green. And monsters are green. Get it? Yeah buddy.

I used these guacamole flavored tortilla chips and they were actually pretty lame. If you can find the Quaker Tortillaz in the guacamole flavor, I definitely recommend using them. Yes, they are triangle-shaped rice cakes but they are the best things ever.¬†Sometimes I buy a bag when I’m grocery shopping and eat the entire bag on the drive home just so I don’t have to share with anyone. Don’t tell my husband.

Use whatever toppings your family enjoys – we used sour cream, pico de gallo, and lots of jalapenos! The cheese sauce is awesome and I can’t believe I never thought of making a quick sauce for nachos before. Literally took 5 minutes!
