Yum Hey What's for Dinner Mom?: Chili Bread


Chili Bread

This a great way to use up leftover chili. Especially when you make a vat of vegetarian chili and can't seem to find the bottom of the pot. I made this for lunch when all 3 of my sons were home, there wasn't a crumb left. It was nice to use leftovers and have it disappear so quick. Sometimes it's hard to be enthusiastic about chili on the third day.

If you are a bread maker by all means use your bread dough. A frozen loaf of dough will also work just as well. I'm not going to give you my bread dough recipe because I figure if you make bread you have your own and if you don't make bread well then you don't make bread.

Chili Bread--oven 400˚
1 batch of bread dough, punched down after it's first rise
2 cups leftover chili
1/2 cup shredded cheese
mustard to taste

on a baking stone or sheet pat out your bread dough nice and flat
about 10x16 or so
spread chili evenly over the top
add as much mustard as you like
sprinkle on cheese
begining on one long side roll up jelly roll style
pinch the seams and ends closed
lay the bread seam side down on the baking sheet
bake in a 400˚ oven for 30-35 minutes
cool for five minutes slice crosswise
and stand back!!

Upcycle those leftovers!

Peace and Love,



  1. Mmmm...I have some bread dough. Now I just need to make me some chili.

  2. Oooo I like this idea. Regular mustard or mustard powder? I'm just trying to picture :)

    My husband always makes a giant pot of chili for our Super Bowl party, and if we have any leftover, I'm totally doing this one! Thanks!

  3. I dont make bread...but have a breadmaker and want to learn how to use it just so I can make chili bread. This looks great!

  4. Yes Jenn you'll love it!

    Michelle I used Guldens spicy brown, you can use what you want. Mustard powder? mmmm I don't know?

    Linda bust out that bread maker!! You will thrill BJ with it-no veggies :)

  5. Good gawd!!! This looks soooo delicious. I don't usually like chili but this makes me want some. Bet this would be awesome with taco meat. Superbowl party anyone?

  6. I make something similar, a Cheeseburger roll-up - with bread dough, hamburger, ketchup, mustard and cheese, which reminds me I haven't made it in a long time!

  7. OMGosh love it! the boys would lov this too. Thanks for the idea!
