    I love Frito pie. And my kids loved it too. Once in awhile I still make it.

    A variation on the Frito pie is to use corn tortillas instead of corn chips. Very good.

    Here's another suggestion for leftover chili.
    Use it as a topping for pizza. But not the kind with beans. The beans don't taste quite right on pizza.

    Two words...Freeze it! Don't be like me and expect your family to eat four days of leftovers and then end up throwing it out. I hate when that happens. We have a vacuum sealer system now which hubby loves to use so that is helping us reduce waste.

    Put some on Fritos. Make a Frito pie..
    Add a little cumin, and taco spice. Have tacos. Try adding a little cinamon, (just a touch), changes the flavor completely.

    If you are going to use the vacuum bags with a liquid, here's a suggestion....
    put the chili in a small plastic tub, then freeze it. When solid put it in a vacuum bag and squeeze out the air, no liquid here.

    Use flour or corn tortillas to make chili burritos. Just add toppings like you normally would for burritos or tacos. It's also great if you have leftover rice then I like to make a mixture of rice, chili, and cheese then microwave it all together until it's hot, then put the mix on the tortillas. Super easy and tasty too.

    I do the same with other bean based stews and Indian food as well. Tortillas are great for cleaning up leftovers!

    Wish I'd thought of that. I love chili on nachos.

    I own a restaurant & one very popular lunch item is mixing leftover chile with penne pasta. We sometimes add meatballs. Bake at 350 for about 35 min. & top with cheese.

    This is so simple I'm almost embarrassed to post it here...but even thinking about it has resolved me to go make it as soon as I'm done with my e-mail!

    When visiting relatives in the Mountain States as a little girl, I looked forward to this Ranch-Hand Breakfast every bit as much as to the ridin', fishin', and huntin' my immediate family never did "back East":

    Ranch-Hand Breakfast

    Pancakes (I prefer buckwheat, but ordinary buttermilk will do)
    Hot dogs or sausages

    Roll each dog/sausage in a pancake. Top with chili.

    If desired, top the chili with any combination of:
    diced onion
    diced bell pepper
    shredded cheese
    fried egg
    hot sauce
    sour cream

    This is what I do with left over chili
    Freeze leftover chili in plastic ice cube trays.
    When frozen, run warm water over the back of tray.
    Put the cubes of chili back in freezer in zipper bags
    or wrap with foil. Or freeze in small butter containers.
    If you put a piece of plastic wrap directly on the top of the
    chili then put on the top, it will not get freezer burn.

    Each cube is exactly enough for one hotdog or hamburger,
    2 or 3 cubes on fries, taco salad, baked white potatoes.
    No more making chili for 1 or 2 dogs or buying the
    "junk' at the grocery store...

    Try my idea for Souper Chili Cheese Dip

    Take your 1 cup chili leftovers. Blend till smooth in a blender or food processor..

    Then, take a 8 ounce package of Philadelphia Cream Cheese, softened.
    Add a small handful of chopped fresh Cilantro.
    Then, of course, the 1 teaspoon Worcester Sauce.
    Cream these ingredients together with an electric mixer.

    Combine the Cream Cheese mixture and the blended chili. Place in a cute southwestern motif bowl, chill until set. Serve with Tortilla Chips, and garnish with a small amount of Shredded Cheddar Cheese.
    serves: 25 w/other dishes
