Reviews for Chili-Cheese Bake
"Delicious! I made this as a side to some chicken tostadas. I cut the recipe in half and it worked out fine. I did forget to put in the kidney beans but remembered halfway through, so after it was in the oven for about 10 minutes, I took it out, threw the beans in, and stirred it up. That way the cheese was mixed throughout AND it would be on top. I didn't do the full 25 10 minutes only because I did cut it in half. Probably did more like 15-20 minutes, then an additional 3-5 minutes after topping with the rest of the cheese. Next time I think I'll add in some green pepper."
"My mom used to make this all the time. I just love it. Just made it today, made ahead of time now all I have to do is heat it on the BBQ later."
