  • 9 ingredients
  • 8 servings


lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef
cup chopped onions
cans (14.5 oz each) Mexican-style stewed tomatoes, undrained
can (15 oz) spicy chili beans, undrained
can (11 oz) whole kernel corn with red and green peppers, undrained
can (11 oz) Pillsbury™ refrigerated breadsticks (12 breadsticks)
egg white, beaten
to 4 small pimiento-stuffed olives, sliced
cup finely shredded Cheddar cheese (2 oz)


  1. 1 In 12-inch skillet, cook beef and onions over medium-high heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently, until beef is thoroughly cooked; drain. Stir in tomatoes, chili beans and corn. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer uncovered 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. 2 Meanwhile, heat oven to 375°F. Unroll dough; separate at perforations into 12 breadsticks. Cut 4 of the breadsticks in half lengthwise; on ungreased cookie sheets, shape into 8 coils.
  3. 3 Cut each remaining breadstick lengthwise into 3 strips, making 24 long strips. Cut each in half crosswise, making 48 short strips. Place 3 short strips on each side of each coil, placing ends under coil; pinch to attach. Bend strips in center to look like spider legs, or place crumpled small piece of foil (about 3x1/2 inch) under 3 "legs" to make them stand up in center. Brush breads with beaten egg white. Place 2 olive slices on each to look like eyes.
  4. 4 Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until "spider body" is light golden brown and "legs" are golden brown. Top individual servings of chili with cheese; serve with warm spider breads.
