teaspoon salt
1/4

Expert Tips

For milder flavor, use regular chili beans and diced tomatoes instead of spicy chili beans and zesty tomatoes.

Set out bowls of your favorite chili toppings. Try sour cream, chopped green onions, jalapeño chiles and extra shredded Cheddar cheese.

It's easy to make this kid-pleasing casserole even more interesting: omit the shredded Cheddar cheese, and use a star-shaped cutter to cut sliced American cheese into star shapes or favorite animals shapes.
