There would definitely NOT be any leftovers of this in our house either. I could eat this as a meal. Just scoop and eat until it was gone, lol. Thank you for sharing with Cookbook Sundays!!

I totally did a version of this in my singlehood! It was quick, affordable, and a HIT with friends. I used refried beans and a bottle of taco sauce, heated together in a skillet (usually because there were vegetarians around). Using chili eliminates an extra step. What a great version for my husband!

When I took it for parties, I bought a foil pizza pan at the dollar store.
