Yesterday I gave you a chili recipe from my husband but I neglected to give you some ideas on how to use it.
First off, you can have it the purist's way and just serve it in a bowl without any toppings. If you want, you can top it with any of the following: sour cream, shredded cheddar cheese, shredded mozzarella cheese, oyster crackers or saltine crackers.
The next day, using only the thickest and least watery parts of the chili, you can put the chili into a tortilla, with sour cream or ranch dressing, lettuce, tomatoes, olives, shredded carrot, shredded cheese. Try this once, and you'll be hooked.
The third day, take any remaining chili and serve it over spaghetti. Top with Parmesan cheese.
The fourth day, there should be precious little of the chili left, but try it inside a bowl of tomato soup, topped with shredded cheese. Or not.
Chili is really a grocery stretcher because there are so many ways to serve it, and things to serve it with.
