This is a remix dish, created from 5 1/2 cups of leftover chili. I really didn't want to freeze it, so I created this clever way to use it in a different way. Using foods that I thought would go well with the dish, then I thought if I layered it, then everyone could get a little of everything that was in it.
Adding chili powder to the sautéed peppers really enhanced the flavors, & adding the Jiffy corn muffin topping & shredded cheese & peppers gave it the extra crunch & cheesy topping it deserved. You can add Jalapeno peppers if you like, but the chopped green chilis were enough for us.
Preheat oven to 350 F. Spray a 9X13 size casserole dish with cooking spray and set aside till needed.
