When I spring clean, it even includes going through the pantry and freezer searching for foods coming close to the stale date and making sure they get used up soon or are given to the food bank.

In this case, a couple of the items were canned chili and (frozen) refrigerated pie crusts that needed to be used. What to make with them? Well, a Chili Pie of course ;-)


  • 3 (15 oz.) cans chili
  • 1 pkg. of two refrigerated flat pie crusts
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese, or more to taste
  • diced onions, to taste, if desired
  • sour cream, for serving


Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. If the chili you are using has an excessive amount of water/fat content, you will want to drain one or two of the cans so you don't end up with an overly soggy crust.

Place one pie crust in a 9 inch pie pan. Sprinkle inside of the crust with 1/4 of the cheese, top evenly with one can of chili, sprinkle with diced onions, then with 1/4 more of the cheese and repeat process. The top layer will be the last of the cheese. Top pie with remaining pie crust, trim, flute well and make vent cuts on top.

Place pie on a cookie sheet in case the chili bubbles out over the edges and bake until crust is golden, about 35 to 45 minutes. If edges begin to brown too much before the top is golden then cover the edges with strips of foil.

Remove pie from oven, let rest for 5 minutes before slicing and serve with sour cream.

I was reading a tip on the recipes for chili dip and it stated to use half a chili brick. What's that? As I live in the U.K, I have never heard of it. Many thanks. xxx This is a link to the specific recipe in question: Chili Dip

I live here in the US and never heard of a chili brick. I make a warm chili dip and all I do is use a can of Hormel chili w/o beans and an 8 oz package of cream cheese. Heat and mix well. Serve with tortilla chips. I usually put mine in a small crock pot so it stays warm. So you don't have to go try to find this chili brick! Actually any canned chili would work and I don't suppose it matters if it has beans or not. Usually for the dip I buy the kind w/o but I like chili w/beans so wouldn't matter as far as I'm concerned.

I call it a chili block as opposed to chili brick, it comes in a small round tub,size of small butter tub and is made bt BLoemers, they call it chili base. You put it in microwave for 2 minutes to liquify it and add it to your chili. It adds lots of flavor to your chili.In Ky, most stores carry it in winter and is an 8 oz pkg.I never make my chili without it.

Hi, I also live in the UK and whenever I make chilli or dip I use dried chilli flakes, you don't need many unless you want a real strong dip or chilli. If you want beans there are plenty of tinned choices in the supermarkets. It depends on where you live but Adsa and Tesco stock world foods, if you have any asian stores they stock chilli flakes, if you think they are to large you can always grind them down. Just wash your hands after handling them and don't touch your face or eyes. Boy will you know about it if you do. Any problems, let me know. Go luck.

One of my kids' (now grown) favorite quickie meals was to open a can of chili, spread it on toast, put a slice of cheese on top and broil it in the oven for a very short time, or microwave it. It is quick, tasty, nutritious - what's not to love about that?
