Ingredient Substitution
For milder flavor, use regular chili beans and diced tomatoes instead of spicy chili beans and zesty tomatoes.
Make It Special
Set out bowls of your favorite chili toppings. Try sour cream, chopped green onions, jalapeƱo chiles and extra shredded Cheddar cheese.
Just for Kids
It's easy to make this kid-pleasing casserole even more interesting: omit the shredded Cheddar cheese, and use a star-shaped cutter to cut sliced American cheese into star shapes or favorite animals shapes.
