    Redneck Epicurean's Note:

    There's something about the combo of these two fast food favorites. However, when you're scraping up pennies to afford rent, eating out isn't an option. This dish is affordable and great because you can make two and freeze one. Also, you can make this a Chili dog and tots casserole by adding bite-sized hot dog pieces to the chili and serving with buns.

      I know Amy will not see this, but I wanted to rate it anyways. This was a wonderful dish we all loved it, it does taste like a fast food favorite of ours, but easier on the budget. Amy, I am sorry I never got to meet you, I think it is wonderful that you live on through your cooking. I will continue rating all of your recipes that I try. Thanks for this, I will be making it again!

      You can take your own leftover chili, as long as you have about 2 1/2 - 3 pounds left. (If you only have 1 1/2 pounds, make one casserole.) Of simply make enough chili to equal this recipe.I only say this, because my husband loves making chili once/month, then freezing the left-overs. This gives us other options!

      I love that meat is added to this. Of course, if you had a chili with lots of beans, it would accomplish the same goal, but the meat keeps it from being "too much" on the chili side, for lack of a better explanation. There's not the usual chili overkill that some recipes with canned chili have. The best part was that it was so easy, dh threw it together in no time flat, without leaving me a zillion dirty dishes in the sink. :)
      I subbed ground turkey, as usual, and I actually used 1 1/2 lbs, since that's what I had handy. I also had dh just use one 9x13 instead of two 8x8 pans. I didn't make the extra one to freeze. I love that I normally have most of the ingredients on hand, so this can be thrown together at the last minute. Keeper for us!
