Mexican Chow Mein

Mexican Chow Mein is a great way to use leftover Chili.  Although there have been times that I make Chili  for the sole purpose of having Mexican Chow Mein.

The following things are layered on one's plate in the order given:

Crushed Tortilla Chips
Cooked Rice (Brown or White)
Shredded Cheese
Diced Onions
Sour Cream

Chili Recipe (Optional)

 1 1/2 lb Ground Beef, browned (I season mine with salt, pepper, minced onions, basil, oregano, parsley, and garlic powder when I brown it)
5 (15 oz) cans Chili Beans (Hot) - I use Kroger brand
1 can (26 oz.) Hunts Zesty and Spicy Spaghetti Sauce
2 (14.5 oz.) cans Tomatoes w/ Jalapeños

Mix everything together in a large stock pot and bring to boil over medium heat.  Turn down heat, cover pan, and simmer for an hour.  Stir often.
