How to Store Leftovers and Reheat
If there are any leftovers I will be surprised. 😉 Just kidding.
But if there are, store the leftovers covered in the fridge.
To reheat, place in the oven until warmed through. It is better enjoyed hot than cold.
Can I Use Another Chili and Cheese?
If you don't have a can of chili (or don't like it), you can use leftover chili instead of canned if you have some on hand. It works just as well and is so good! I have used leftover taco meat in this as well and it was amazing and worked so well. This recipe is easy and adaptable.
You can also use another kind of cheese. Cheddar or Colby jack are great options too!
