Chili Salad Recipe - Best Leftovers Recipe Ever!

By Sinea Pies

Some of the best concoctions can be made from leftovers! This salad is one of them. I had made a great big pot of homemade chili and, the next day, wanted more. So, for lunch I made this luscious salad! It is oh so easy. Here is how I did it!

Of course, it helps to have the chili on hand. You can use any chili but my recipe tastes really great. I always make more than needed so that we are guaranteed to have some leftovers plus I can freeze enough for a whole nuther meal (is "nuther" a word?) 

Chili Salad Recipe
Prepared chili
Shredded cheddar cheese
Lettuce and/or other salad greens
Cocktail or Grape Tomatoes
Chopped green pepper

Optional Toppings:
Sour Cream
Banana Pepper slices

Put some chili in a microwavable bowl. I used about 1 cup for this salad.
Sprinkle cheddar cheese on top.
Warm it until sizzling and cheese is melted.

While the chili is heating, cut up lettuce and put it in a salad bowl. 
Add chopped green pepper and tomatoes.
Slide the warm chili on top of your salad.
Add optional toppings.
