Pop Up Chili Pie is an easy and delicious dinner your family will love!
Pop up pies are a recipe that I have been making for years. The first one I shared here on my site was Pop Up Pizza Pie back in 2009. Some people call it upside down pizza, but we have always called them pop up pies because the batter is similar to a pop over and it puffs up while cooking similar to how a pop over does.
Last weekend we had several families that were visiting from out of town over for dinner. I served hot dogs, chili, and fritos to keep it easy.
I wasn’t exactly sure how many we would have so I made two large pots of chili. It worked great and there was plenty of food. In fact, I ended up with almost a full crock pot of chili leftover.
Leftover chili is great because you can do so many things with it. Including freezing it. This time though I wanted to do something a little different and decided to make a chili version of a pop up pie. And it worked great!
My oldest daughter ended up putting this together and it was so easy and so good. And I am excited to have yet another way to use leftover chili!
