You know those days when you just don’t want to spend hours in the kitchen cooking dinner? Today was one of those days. I was on the hunt for an easy and fast recipe. We were graced with about a foot of snow, which I love but, the shoveling and playing have me pooped out. I think I am getting too old to spend 3 hours playing in the snow. Maybe? NAH!
I stood in front of the pantry, saw the chili and thought, “Hmm, let’s give it a try.” I am sure it’s been done somewhere before but, it’s new to me. Most things that I make stem from, let’s see what we can throw together today. I actually use my blog as a recipe book of sorts. Once I make it, I post it. Usually later on, I will write it in my book if it was a hit with everyone.
I am not a fan of beans but, this was what I had because it was on sale. You can really use either kind. You can use any brands that you like, I listed what I used. This is easy to assemble. You simply layer the ingredients on, as I have laid out below, and pop it in the oven!

I am by no means a pro at this but, it has become something I wanted to learn to make, and did. I have made these a handful of times and they were always a huge hit with everyone who has tried them. While my boys and I were back in Pennsylvania for Christmas, my mom talked me into making them for her. They are really not as difficult as you might think , but they are time consuming.
