Other than eating dozens of heaping bowls of chili with cornbread, what can you do with all of that Vegetarian Crockpot Chili? There are a multitude of possibilities. A few of my favorites follow.
Leftover chili (about 2.5 C)
9 flour tortillas
2-3 C Mexican cheese
Preheat oven to 425. Coat 13 x 9 baking pan with non-stick spray. Alternate layers of tortillas, chili and cheese. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly.
1 package Smart Dogs or Tofu Pups tofu hot dogs
1 C leftover chili
1/2 C Mexican cheese
Hot dog buns
Fry the tofu dogs in a pan over medium heat with butter until the skin is slightly crispy. Remove dogs, top with chili and cheese.
Mexican Stuffed Shells
12 jumbo pasta shells
2.5-3 C leftover chili
Salsa (about 1/2 C)
1 C Sour cream
1 C Mexican cheese
Cook shells according to package directions. Preheat oven to 425. Fill shells with mix of chili, sour cream and cheese. Place shells in a 13 x 9 baking dish. Top with more cheese, any extra mix and salsa. Bake for 30-35 minutes.
Another easy and kid-friendly use is to mix the leftover chili with a package of macaroni and cheese. If anyone has another use for chili leftovers that they are willing to share, please post a suggestion.Due to spam, I've decided to close comments on posts older than 14 days.
