Chili Pie

As a kid I loved corn chips more than I loved life.   And as an adult, I only eat them occasion.  Which makes me sad 😡

So now I eat them in this delicious pie!  (Fritos n chili?  Yes please!)

2 T butter

2 bags corn chips (one for eating, one for the pie!)
4 cans of chili (I buy mine at Aldi) or leftover chili
1 bag o'cheese (preferrably Mexican or cheddar or some sort of cheddar blend)

Melt that butter in a 9x13, then crunch up those chips in the bag to sprinkle half on the pan over the butter.  Then pour the 4 cans of chili in, then throw the rest of the chips on top and put as much cheese as you want on top.  Bake at 350 for about 20 min.  BANG!  You done!    So easy, so quick, and so delish! 

(If you need that extra bag of chips, then use em!  Otherwise save till tomorrow and eat them with some Bean Dip!)

Meat Noodle Soup

Actually the title of this recipe is (Chicken?) Noodle Soup.  I can't use crazy things like question marks in my blog title because it makes Blogger a big fat crybaby and screws up my posts.  The reason I named it this is because I had no idea what meat I had to use in the soup, so it wasn't decided yet.  So anyways, here is a basic soup recipe for your eating pleasure:

-bags of frozen veggies
-water and bouillon or chicken stock (or beef stock if you're using beef), 2 C per person
-1/4 t garlic powder & 1/4 t ground ginger
-meat of your choice, cut into bite sized pieces
-thinly sliced green onions
-ramen noodles without the seasoning packet

  1. Now, use the 1/4 t of each spice for every 2 C of water/stock. 
  2. Use as much bouillon as you need for the amount of water you're using.  I use 8 C water (with 8 t bouillon) or stock for four people with leftovers.  
  3. Add bags of veggies.  I am using a stir-fry medley with carrots, snap peas, broccoli, and yellow peppers (2 bags) along with a partial bag of peas and carrots.
  4. Cook your meat separately.  (I am using cans of chicken to sprinkle in each bowl before serving).  After meat is cooked, place in soup pot with everything else.
  5. After soup is boiling and your veggies are cooked, throw in the ramen noodles.  Let cook for 3 minutes and serve topped with green onions.  
  6. Serve with crusty bread.  The recipe I used I found here:  CRUSTY ASS BREAD RECIPE. 
  7. Bread is cheaper to make than to buy.  And more fun.  And more messy.   But more tasty.  So it's definitely worth it to make your own.

This soup is basic.  Kind of a like a basic bitch.  We can rename this soup "Basic Bitch Soup".  Which I'd like to assume means a girl without makeup on (which is what this soup is compared to a human).  But I don't think that's what it means.  But anyways, it's a basic soup to make when you need something quick and cheap to make.  And, it's yum! 

UPDATE: Just made this soup?  And no, it's not a basic bitch.  It's one of the best damn soups you'll ever taste!  OMG!!!  Soooo yummy!
