Chili Casserole

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by MISSIB

When I had left over Chili my kids wanted this dish. You can also make it in little Frito Corn Chip Bags (just cut open one side of bag pour Chili over corn chips, dot with sour cream, give them a plastic spoon) and they are good to go. No muss no fuss. They are sold like that at country fairs.

DH loved this and had two helpings! I made half of the recipe with a 40 ounce can of Hormel chili with beans and 9 ounce bag of Fritos. Warming the chili in the pan first makes the casserole the perfect temperature when coming out of the oven. Topped with some extra crushed Fritos and sour cream. A good meal by itself! Thank you MISSIB for being such a good girl during PAC!
