WHAT TOPPINGS GO WELL WITH THIS CRACK CHICKEN CHILI?
So many fun toppings! I like to add on even more shredded cheese at the end (because cheese rocks!) but you can add in cilantro, chives, sour cream, and even some jalapenos as well.
Since the taste is so awesome, it opens the gates for as many fun toppings as you want.
CAN YOU FREEZE HOMEMADE CHILI?
You sure can! This is another reason that I love to make this recipe. Since it makes a larger batch, there is typically some leftover at the end.
Freezing it is a great option and saves money, too. All you have to do is add it to a freezer-safe container and place it in the fridge. It’s literally as simple as that!
