My husband and I are in our 70’s and travel in our 5th wheel camper. We like simple recipes and especially crockpot dishes. But, one night, my husband got out a large can of Chili with beans. Lo and behold, there was a very simple idea for a meal. We just modified it a bit. The can called for tortillas; however, all we had was Dorito chips.

How To Make dinner in a snap, mexican style

  • 1
    While heating up the Chili, crush up the Dorito chips and place on each person’s plate or bowl. (I use a large bowl and a spoon to insure I don’t waste anything.)
  • 2
    Once heated, spoon the Chili over the Doritos. We had some leftover chopped onions and tomatoes so we threw that on, as well.
  • 3
    Add the desired amount of shredded cheese (and anything else you want). This was the easiest dinner ever, thanks to the recipe on the Chili can.
