I just love chili. I could eat it all the time. My favorite thing to do is pour it over a baked potato (or french fries)with cheese, lettuce, tomato, onions, and sour cream. But my husband gets tired of the same things. Do you have any new ideas to do with chili?

My husband likes chili dogs. They are hot dog weiners in bigger sized buns with chili poured over it, and I grate cheese on top sometimes.

There is a variety of different things one can make with chili. I know that I have found a variety of different dishes that include using chili & they are very yummy indeed. Here are a few ideas on what you can do with chili & I hope if you end up trying a few of the idea's that you end up liking them quite a bit. I know what it is like to get tired of the same things or the same dishes. So I always try to come up with different ways to make my favorite dish I know that for sure. Some of the things though that you can do with chili are: - You can make a chili macaroni which consists of using 1 package of hamburger helper chili macaroni. 2 teaspoons of chili powder, 1 pound of yummy bulk pork sausage, 3 1/2 cups of hot water, 2 cups of diced tomatoes undrained, 1 can of kidney beans, rinsed & drained, 1 can of whole kernel corn drained, and some shredded cheddar cheese. You can also add some more chili powder if you'd like as well. What you do is cook the sausage before hand in a skillet, stir occasionally, & cook until know longer pink. Then stir in the uncooked pasta that you have on hand. Along with the sauce mixture, & of course the remaining ingredients. Just leave the cheese & additional chili powder to the side though because those come in use after. Bring this to a boil, make sure to stir all the time. Then reduce heat, simmer for 16 mins, at least until pasta is tender. Then remove this from the heat, & then sprinkle with cheese & additional chili powder. - You could prepare some hot dogs like you usually would. Such as boiling them or barbequing them. And then place them in buns after they are cooked. Top them with the prepared chili you have made.. And then a little bit of cheddar cheese. Microwave them until the cheese melts.. After that you've got yourself some chili dogs! YUM! - You can also serve the chili you had prepared over a bed of spaghetti. Like they do in Cincinnati. - You can also use the chili you had prepared as a topping to make chili nacho's. All you do is spoon chili over the nacho chips. Then sprinkle with cheese. Then heat the nacho's in the microwave oven or even broil them in the oven until the cheese melts. For 1 to 2 minutes. You can also if your daring & want a little heat.. Add some jalapeno peppers to the nacho's as well. - When your at the grocery store purchase some flour tortilla's. Preferably burrito style. And after you have prepared the chili.. Place one tortilla on a flat service or on a plate.. And microwave for 30 seconds or as long as it says on the package. Afterwards add the chili mixture to the tortilla. Then top it off with cheese, & then reheat in microwave until cheese has melted. Then serve. These are rather yummy & I recommend this dish whole heartedly. - You could also buy a loaf of sour dough bread. Take a spoon & scoop out a large portion of the insides of the loaf.. Basically you are trying to make it look like a bowl.. Pour the chili you had prepared in to the bowl portion of the loaf of bread.. Then serve this unique dish! - You could make chili dip! What you do is.. Mix your prepared chili with 1 package of cream cheese until softened over stove top in a sauce pan. Once cream cheese becomes soft.. Remove from heat & mix well, & then serve. You can serve this with chips & mild salsa. It makes for a different, yet delicious dish! In conclusion.. I hope some of the idea's I have given you have helped you to have a variety of different ways of serving chili! . . Thanks for allowing me to share! ENJOY! xx

sorry, I didn't mean "chilli" peppers. I mean the chilli with meat, sauce and beans. But I could have used these ideas last summer when I had so many chilli peppers in my garden that I didn't know what to do with.
