Easy Mini Veggie Chili Pot Pies

I love veggie chili from scratch and I make it often.  It’s one of my few “savory” meals I can make without staring at a recipe, which means it’s always different, but always spicy and hearty.

But sometimes, my friends, I cheat a little and make it “the easy way”.

 

This involves:

I ate a few bowls of this straight up the last time I made it, but then I saw this post for Chili Pot Pies from Ellie at Vintage Victuals and was inspired to dress the next few bowls up a little.

All it took was some Pyrex refrigerator dishes and a tube (yes…tube) of reduced fat crescent roll dough.

Oh yeah, and a generous sprinkle of grated Kerrygold cheddar.

Heat up the chili first, then spoon it into the oven-proof bowl and add some delicious cheese.

Drape the crescent dough over the top, pinch to seal, and bake at 375 degrees for 15 or so minutes.

Then eat!  It feels so much fancier this way but still tastes great and warms you right up.

Betty’s Celestial Cheese Rice Strata

In this video, Betty demonstrates how to make her Celestial Cheese-Rice Strata. This is a beautiful and tasty casserole that goes with almost any entrée. I hope you can use it over the holidays!

Ingredients:

3 cups cooked regular rice (Use 1 ½ cups rice, 1 ½ cups water, 1 teaspoon salt. Cook, covered, for 14 minutes.)
2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
2 oz. diced pimiento, drained
2 ½ cups milk
4 eggs, well-beaten
½ teaspoon seasoned pepper
½ teaspoon dry mustard
¼ to ½ teaspoon hot sauce (Use more, if you like it hot!)
½ teaspoon salt, optional (I omitted the salt, but the casserole will be better with ½ to ¾ teaspoons salt.)

Place half of the cooked rice into a lightly greased 13-inch by 9-inch by 2-inch Pyrex baking dish. Top with half of the cheese and half of the pimiento. Repeat layers. Combine remaining ingredients and mix well. Pour mixture over rice layers. Bake at 325 for approximately 45 minutes, or until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean. Serve immediately! This is a great addition to any table, and it is wonderful at holiday and potluck dinners! I hope you enjoy it! Have a Very Merry Christmas! Love, Betty & Rick ♥♥♥♥♥ ( This was made at Christmas 2010 lol)
