Leftover Meatloaf Chili

"Got leftover meatloaf and you're tired of sandwiches (like if anyone could be;) and you want something different? Try this very good recipe. Be careful though, the way that this is written it's very spicy. (Well at least to me anyway :)). I let this simmer for about 30 minutes for a better flavor. This recipe will serve two very hungry people or 3 not so hungry people. Submitted to "ZAAR" on October 12,2007"

    What a great idea! I was hunting for something to do with my leftover meatloaf from recipe #305800 this is what I found and I'm so happy I did. I did decrease the chili powder by half and used some cumin, coriander, onion powder and garlic powder to replace it. Yummy! Thanks for a unique recipe. :)

    Wow, what's not to love about this recipe? A great use for leftover meatloaf and the perfect amount for 2! DH isn't as wild as I am about meatloaf sandwiches, and it is a cold and snowy day here, so perfect for chili. I made it as written with plain chili powder, but did also use DelMonte diced tomatoes with mild chilies as that is what I had on hand. It sat on the stove on low for longer than I had planned, but it just made the flavors blend nicely. Thanks Chef for an easy, tasty, great use for leftovers recipe! We'll come back to this one again and again!

    My boyfriend just asked if I could do "something else" with the meatloaf because he was tired of sandwiches. So....I tried this recipe. It's delicious and it looks like I spent hours making it.

    What a great way to use left over meatloaf. I loved this idea and didn't know why I hadn't thought of it myself. Thank you.

    I added an extra can of beans, 1/2 cup chopped onions and red bell peppers, 1 tea. cumin, 1 chopped jalapeno, 2 cloves chopped garlic and 1/2 beer.....I also added 1/2 cup salsa verde. Good stuff.


Even though I haven't been here for a long time, MY recipes aren't up for adoption. :) And don't change any of them either. ;)
