Chili Casserole

Chili Casserole created by lauralie41

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.

directions

  • Pre-heat oven to 375°.

  • Pour chili over corn chips.

    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!

    We use to have this when I was a teenager. Mother would prepare in an iron skillet, add sliced onions and perhaps just a bit of water. Pop it in the oven, and before long we had a great meal for cool winter nights. Thanks for reminding me of this easy recipe.

    This was great--my teenagers especially loved eating out of the bag. I usually serve my Recipe #149226 with sour cream and cheddar cheese but switching the usual bowl for a bag of chips really made it fun. They all wanted to just eat them out of hand rather than use a bowl, so the dog enjoyed it as well! Next time, they either use a bowl or they go outside. :)
