Chili Pot-Pie

Looking for something fun to feed the family on Super BOWL Sunday?

Try these! They are a winner with my team. Everyone has their own bowl and that makes the men of my house feel very special. OK, the girls like it too.
I love them because they are so easy to make and always a crowd pleaser.

Start with individual bowls (oven safe) one for each person at your table.
Fill the bowls with your favorite chili recipe.

This is what I used to make mine.
Ground Turkey
Sweet Sausage
Canned Tomatoes
Canned Paste
Kidney Beans
Black Beans
Chili Powder
Smoked Paprika
Dash of Chipotle Tabasco
Garlic and Onion
Salt and Pepper
Then we went for a jog/bike ride while the chili was cooking.

Layer green onion on top of the chili.

Spread Cheese on top of the chili. I used a cheddar/jack blend.
Grease the outer rim of each bowl and place a piece of pie crust or Puff Pastry dough over the bowl and seal. I used ready-made pie crust.
Seal by pressing the crust against the greasy rim of the bowl.
Bake at 375°F until golden brown.

Remove from the oven and sprinkle some extra cheese and sour cream on top.
Allow to cool a few minutes then let the team dive in!

We also had this quick and easy dessert in honor of Inauguration day

It's just a sheet of Puff Pastry dough.
Whipped Cream and frozen fruit.
Sprinkled with ice sugar.
Comments and questions always welcome and needed for growth.

YUM! Good idea. My kids actually LOVE chili. Made in their own bowl with 'crust' I think will be a great addition. Jenny D.

This looks really good and I'll probably use this recipe for my men. And great blog concept, Cassie. I'm always impressed with your culinary creativeness.
