What a great and fun way to use up leftover chili. I used the salad in a bag and had some beef chili left. I accessorized it with some cheddar cheese and a dollop of sour cream. I also left out the olives since DH and I don't care for them. We both loved it and it will be THE WAY of using up chili from now on! Thank you Laurie!!!
