This was Fabulous! I added 1 lb. of ground beef and topped it with shredded cheddar when it came out of the oven. Hubbie had thirds!

This is a great way to use leftover homemade chili. I always make to much and rather than freezing the leftovers, I used it for this pie. I served it with a tossed green salad and my family loved it.
