The whole point of making chili this week, was for the leftovers.
Leftovers that I could not stop thinking about before they even existed.
Thank you, Jessica.
Noodles. Cheese. Cocoa Chili.
Baked until golden brown.
And carefully carved out.
Cornbread + noodles? Ridiculous, when combined. As in, ridiculously good.
The chili had thickened up quite a bit in the refrigerator. I think next time I would thin it out with veggie broth, as it wasn’t saucy, like Jessica’s. I think the cornbread soaked up quite a bit of the chili liquid, because it took double the amount of time to bake! However, it was still one of the best “leftovers reinvented” meals ever.
