While all the Brady Fans were screaming at the TV, I was busy making some snacks for the mad people in my Living Room. All the while I was staring at my leftover Chili from during the week. Sometimes, the usual Chili dogs and Chili bakes doesn’t cover it. Is there such a thing as chili bake? I guess there could be, but I wasn’t in the mood for a bake. I wanted something just to pop in my mouth while I sat back watching the Patriot fans wipe the tears from their faces.
I just so happened to have pie crust in the fridge because it was on sale. Boy am I glad I grabbed one. It worked out perfectly for a day like this. Little bits of chili wrapped in a half-moon pie shell? Yeah, you betcha. I had to add a little heat too, with Pepper Jack Cheese. The spice will light up your mouth with fire! Finish them off with Sour Cream and Dill dipping sauce.
These bites are so easy to make. Here’s a little tip with the pie dough. After I cut a few circles out, I rolled the pie dough up in a ball and rolled it out again. This helps stretch the dough to make 24 half- moons. You can also use Filo Dough or pizza dough. They will all work out perfectly with this recipe.
