I made this for my family one night & they loved it! They wanted more! It's delicious & great for those cold nights.

The Crew really loved the chili topping layers in this easy dinner. It's a great alternative to a regular bowl of chili. If you think this is too spicy, just adjust the heat to your liking. Hearty and filling, this is winter comfort food all the way.
