Well my chili is now officially gone! But it served us so well this week! My final chili recipe is one that is super easy and so delicious! I guess our fall chili days are officially over . . . it has been snowing a bit today, signaling the onslaught of winter and the lovely cold to come!
As a kid growing up I remember scanning thru what I thought was the coolest book ever "Today's Tips For Easy Living" by Dian Thomas. I guess she used to be the genius crafty lady on the Today show. Anyways I loved that book and last fall I found a copy at Deseret Book! It was the holy grail of all finds! I would have bought everyone I know one . . . but their was only one . . . so now I am relishing it! The ideas within are brilliant as are the recipes! I made the Chili Chip casserole for dinner the other night and my hubby LOVED it!!! (All I can say is fritos . . . in a casserole . . . with chili . . . and cheese = yummy!!!)
Chili Chip Casserole
1 lb hamburger
1 (8oz) can tomato sauce
1 (16 oz) can chili con carne
3 cups fritos
1 jalapeno chopped (optional)
1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese
Brown hamburger in skillet over medium heat. Drain off drippings. Add tomato sauce and chili con carne. Stir in 1 cup of fritos. Heat until warmed thru. Add jalapeno and cheese on top for added zip. Top with remaining fritos and bake in oven for about 10-15 minutes until bubbly or hot. Serve with sour cream and freshly diced onion. Serves 4 to 6 people.
(I just use leftover chili to make this! It is really good!)
