Chili Dog Nachos

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Charmie777

This recipe came from Rachael Ray. It's easy, and delicious. I made it with smoked bratwurst to make it more "adult-friendly" and it worked great! We enjoyed the Super Bowl while munching on these.(Note: I agree with not needing the oil as a reviewer suggested. I don't use it either.)

these were WONDERFUL! I used a little bit of vegetable oil spray instead of the actual oil, and they came out great. the meat had such a great flavor to it and the mixture wasn't as liquidy as I was scared it might be. fantastic!! =) will be making again!
