It’s time to talk about Walmart’s Meal Solutions again! This is the segment where I tell you what meal Walmart is highlighting for a quick and easy weeknight meal. This time the grab & go meal at Walmart is Chili Night!

So of course you could warm up the chili, top with some cheese and serve with crackers, cornbread and corn with fudge brownies for desert.
But that would be boring. And really starchy. There needs to be a green veggie in there. . .
I decided to go a slightly nontraditional route and serve my chili over a baked potato!
Doesn’t that look good! And it’s quick and easy too-since I baked the potato in my microwave.
Although I like to make my own cornbread from scratch, the Jiffy box mix is inexpensive and tasty, so I do keep a box or two on hand for those “ack!” nights.
My favorite two chili recipes to make homemade are the Wanna Be Wendy’s Chili and Chicken Chili Blanco. Sometimes you have time to make your own, and sometimes it’s good to have canned chili in your pantry for quick emergency dinners. Here are 8 ways you can eat canned (or homemade) chili!
1. As regular chili.
2. Over a baked potato.
3. Mixed into mac ‘n cheese
4. With cheese over rice.
5. With melted Velveeta as a dip.
6. As a burrito filling.
7. In a taco salad.
8. In a casserole dish with cornbread mix on top-then baked.
What do you use canned chili for?
