Do you ever use Hormel Chili in a recipe? How?

Asked by SamIAm (8690points) January 19th, 2010

Before I ate red meat, I would cook Hormel Chili (without meat) along with hot sauce, sour cream, cheddar cheese, and corn and eat it as a soup or chili. Lately, I have been eating meat and I used the Hormel Chili in a layered dip… I have some cans laying around and want to make a simple chili. I am a little unsure if it is okay to eat this stuff alone (I’m sure it’s safe, it’s just a matter of being a little skeeved), so I was wondering if any of you use it and if so, how?

I use it over hot dogs with grated cheddar cheese.

Aside from on hot dogs, I use a can mixed in with other types of beans, a can of Rotel, corn nibblets and tiny pasta shells for “homemade” chili.

I prefer Wolf brand chili, w/o beans. Grew up on the stuff. Like Marina, I use it to make chili dogs. I also like it in a bowl with cheese, chopped onions, crackers, and a dab of sour cream. Hmmm, maybe that’s why my cholesterol is around 10,000..

I mix it with Velveeta to make a decidedly white trash, yet irresistibly delicious dip for nacho chips.

@dalepetrie YES! I do that too. In fact, that’s probably my most common use for Hormel Chili. I’m not a big fan of chili so… dip.

I usually heat it in a microwave bowl and then use as a sauce over spaghetti, and top with onions and cheese.

My favorite way to eat chili is the way @YARNLADY just said, but with sour cream instead of cheese. I’m also partial to chili dogs with onions and cheese like @Austinlad. Normally I don’t like hot dogs, but throw some chili on and yum yum.

You can dump the chili into a bowl, stir in a jar of queso dip (the cheese/salsa stuff), heat it up, and use for nachos. It’s the classy version of @dalepetrie ‘s dip.~

It is perfectly OK to eat the chili alone if that’s what you want to do. It probably doesn’t compare to homemade, but for a quick lunch or dinner, why not? Just serve it the way you’d normally serve chili, with crackers, cheese, sour cream, or whatever you have on hand.
