So you've had chili 4 nights in a row and there's still some left. You could always freeze that for a night when you're on the go and don't have time to cook. But, I wanted to bring the taste of a ball game to my kitchen. So last night I whipped up...
Chili Dog Casserole!
3 cups Leftover Chili (or whatever is left in your crock pot)
2-3 Hot Dogs - diced
2 cups cooked noodles
(I used both elbow macaroni & egg noodles to clean out the pantry)
1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese.
Cook noodles. Mix with diced hot dogs and left over chili in greased casserole dish. Top with shredded sharp cheddar cheese. Bake covered at 350 for 30 minutes. For the last 5 minutes take the cover off to get cheese slightly browned.
Super easy, and yet delicious - adds a whole new twist to left overs! And let me tell you, it's also sooooo much easier than eating a loaded chili dog at the ball park while trying to balance your $8 beer!
Have a delicious afternoon!
