    Default What can I do with extra chili? :D

    I really love chili so I made a triple batch.
    Well I used a new seasoning pack and it's not the chili that I love at all

    What can I do with this chili?
    The only thing I know to do so far is:
    baked potato with chili on top
    macaroni add chili
    Normally I like taco salad but this time I trying to actually hide the chili a bit LOL.

    Thanks if you know of anything

    -You listed mac and chili but have you made mac and cheese with just a cup of chili inside to give it just that little kick to make it "different?"
    -Can you use some of it in a new batch of chili that you do like?
    -Can you use puree a cup of it and toss it in a pot of soup?
    -What about using a little pureed chili and mix it into a batch of bread dough?
    -Can you doctor it up into a different style of chili like Cincinnati style?

    You could layer some of the chili with some cheese in between layers of tortillas and make a burrito pie. Bake in a 350F oven until hot and bubbly. Serve with salsa on top and a nice green salad on the side.

    Make taco soup. Combine some chili with vegetable or beef broth. Add a handful of rice, some canned diced tomatoes, taco seasoning, and salsa to taste. Simmer until the rice is cooked. Serve with a few tortilla or corn chips crumbled on top.

    chili rice casserole

    chili
    leftover rice
    cheese
    black olives (optional)
    can of beans (optional)


    I slice up a can or two of black olives into the chili and maybe a can of beans. I mix some of the rice into the chili and keep adding in rice until until it looks "casseroley". Then, I mix in some cheese (how much depends on how much I have). I toss it in the oven to cook. I save some of the cheese to sprinkle over the top. If you don't have enough cheese to add in it, just sprinkle it over the top. You sprinkle the cheese over it like the last few minutes of baking time. I just get the cheese to warm up and get melty.

    My guys love this. I "created" it one of the times that I had some leftover rice and some leftover chili. I added in the cheese and made it into casserole. The guys all said that it would be better with black olives in it. So, the next time I made it, I added in the black olives. They were right, it was nummy!!

    I agree with ceashels - make Cincinnati 4 or 5 way chili out of it.

    A "two-way" is spaghetti topped with chili only. chili is "three-way" if you put grated cheddar cheese on the chili, "four-way" (with added red kidney beans or chopped raw white onions), or "five-way" (with added beans and onions).

    The dish is called The Five Way because of the five distinct layers usually served on a large platter. The first layer is a large helping of spaghetti. The next layer is ladles of Cincinnati chili. Next comes a layer of kidney beans. Chopped onions are piled over the beans. The entire dish is then crowned with lots of grated cheese, usually Cheddar.

    Pour the chili into a casserole. Mix up a batch of cornbread batter and pour on top of the chili. Bake at 400 until browned on top.

    Yummy, I love frito pie. I put raw onions on mine also. I would make nachos with the chili, but then again, I always try to find a reason to make nachos...

    Mexican Fiesta pie ( From Pillsbury)
    3 cups corn or tortilla chips
    15 oz can chili with beans ( can use homemade)
    1/2 cup chopped onion
    2 cups shredded cheddar or monterey jack cheese

    Heat oven to 400 degrees. Lightly grease a 9 inch square pan or casserole dish. Layer half the corn chips, chili, onion and cheese in the dish and repeat the layers with the rest of the ingredients. Bake for 15 minutes or until hot through. Garnish with lettuce, tomatoes and olives.

    * I use stale chips; a good use for them. We also like sour cream on ours.
