Menu Plans–A week of Chili

Holy Spirit-Led Homeschooling Stewart Size Chili


Click on the above link for free recipe download from Holy Spirit-led Homeschooling. This is a great chili recipe. Chili is something that can be made in big batches and used for creative meals all week. 

We will sometimes have a Chili week or a Beans week – where I make a big batch of one of those and serve it all week by changing it up and making different meals all week with it:

Here is a sample of one of our Chili Weeks:
Chili Week:

Monday – Chili (with all the fixins’ – sour cream, onions, black olives, etc.)
Tuesday - Chili Baked Potatoes (serve over baked potatoes)
Wednesday – Chili Corn Bread Casserole*
Thursday – Chili Mac (serve chili over pasta)
Friday – Chili Nachos (serve chili over nacho or tortilla chips - with cheese)
Saturday – Chili Subs (serve chili on sub sandwich bun with cheese)
Sunday – Chili Soup **

There you have it.  I am sure there are many other recipe ideas.  If you have other creative ways you use chili, please add them in the comment section.

* Recipe Corn Bread Casserole
Put cooked chili in a Casserole pan or a glass bake pan.  Make 1 -2 boxes of corn bread mix according to directions.  Pour the corn bread mixture over the chili and bake at 350 degrees until the corn bread is baked.

** Recipe Chili Soup
1 can tomato juice (46 oz.)
1 can tomato soup
1/2 cup of pasta
Add the above ingredients to chili and cook on medium until heated through.
