  1. The chili casserole sounds delicious.
    Have a great week with those tasty sounding meals!

    1. Thank you, Anne. Bailey wasn't a fan of it and said it had to many green chilies. I may have went overboard on them. LOL

  2. The recipe looks tasty. I am using up, that's the plan, what's here and start my month being kitchen frugal.

    1. Thank you, Sam. Kudos to you for using up what you have. :)

  3. I would love to try the chili casserole, but my poor tummy would probably not handle the spiciness of that. Wonderful how you manage to use up what you have.

    God bless.

    1. Thank you, Jackie. And I totally get the spiciness factor, I have to be careful there too.

  4. All of it sounds and looks delicious...have a great week!
