Hope everyone had a great weekend! Things were a little hectic around here with Kennedy’s 9th birthday party sleepover, but we all had a good time and the weather was beautiful. Last week, I told you I’d have this post up “in a few days”, but as things go, here it is almost a week later and I’m just getting it together now. I know this is one we’ll all find handy though. I also just want to take a minute and say thanks to all of the other moms who reached out in the comments section of my last post. In a funny way, it’s great to know that there’s so much imperfection in this world and that we can all just laugh about it a little together. Now on to the food!
-Eat it straight (Seems obvious, but sometimes I forget!)
-Chili over rice
-Chili over pasta
-Chili over cornbread
-Bell peppers stuffed with chili
-Add some extra tomato sauce and serve it over buns to make sloppy joes
-Chili over broccoli
-Chili hot dogs
-Chili cheese fries
-Mix it with sour cream or cream cheese to make a tasty dip
-Chili over salad to make kind of a taco salad
-Chili scrambled eggs
-Chili baked potatoes
-Chili casserole topped with hashbrowns
-Chili casserole topped with crumbled tortilla chips and cheese
-Chili tacos (use the chili instead of the seasoned meat and add in lettuce, cheese, etc.)
-Chili burritos (Mix it with rice in a tortilla)
-Water it down with tomato juice or beef stock and make a chili soup
-Use it to make a big plate of hearty nachos and pig out with your family! (My favorite!)
These are just a few that I rattled off in about 10 minutes off the top of my head, but I’m certain there are probably about 1000 more. What other ideas can you think of? I’ll be listening!
Don’t forget to pin these ideas for the next time you make a big pot of chili at your house!
