This is a very fast and easy dish, fully satisfied my DH's appetite as he loves potatoes with his chili. The chili recipe is a quick throw together and suits this dish well. I wil also try this with hotdogs as it is so easily put together. I like a more chili pepper flavor so added some dry chili powder as well.
