Chili is one of those delightful foods — like spaghetti and takeout Chinese — that tastes more delicious on the second day than the first. Even better, leftover chili combines well with a plethora of other foods to be magically reinvented as a totally new dish.
Whether you're looking to start your day with a hearty omelet or are searching for an inventive spin on nachos to serve on football Sunday, you really can't go wrong with leftover chili.
