Mortgage and work history question: Can I go back and file my taxes even though I was told I wasn't making enough? Is it worth it?

I was self employed for two years while in college just to make some side money. I was told I wasn't making enough to have to file taxes, that it was more like a hobby so I didn't worry about it. Fast forward to now three years or so down the line. I want a mortgage quote from another company but I need some kind of tax proof that I was working and making money those two years. What do I do? Having that as proof would be great and would get me more quotes but is it a good idea to go back and file? I don't know how that works. Help please and thank you.
