If your a Chili lover as much as we are, then you are familiar with a good Chili Frito Pie. The only problem is we don’t like our Frito’s getting all soft on the bottom. We prefer them to stay nice and crunchy. So if you reverse the method, problem solved!
We make our Chili Lover’s Frito Pie with leftover chili, the day after making a nice big ole pot of our good old fashioned diner style Chili Lover’s Chili. It’s so thick and rich and a little bit spicy, it might be even better on day two!
Now if your not in the mood to make a big pot of chili, you can certainly buy your favorite canned chili, I’ve done that before too.. a big 40 oz can of Chili Man Chili will work just fine.
This is also great for a quick game day treat or the upcoming Super Bowl. I’ve seen a lot of people like to set up a chili bar for Super Bowl parties. You could do that easily enough with a big pot of chili, keeping it warm in a crock pot, and set around several serving bowls of different toppings; things like jalapenos, onions, cheese, sour cream, green onions, extra hot sauce, etc.
Do you have any recipes that call for leftover chili? Let me know in the comments, I would love to hear some new ideas!
