You could also sprinkle on some sliced jalapenos or black olives. I opted to leave the bacon off this version so the Guinness® Chili could be the star, lol

To make even more Irish Chili Nachos for a large crowd, simply double the recipe and serve on a baking sheet or very large cast iron skillet. 😉

With the leftover Guinness® Chili, you could also make some delicious Chili Cheese Dogs…..
