You'll need 12 bags of corn chips for 2 servings per person.

Use as much cheese as you desire. However, one tablespoon has been calculated into the calories for one serving.

Cookwell Two-Step Chili

If you have never tried Cookwell Two-Step Chili, try it sometime. The H.E.B. store carries it, or you can order jars of the Cookwell chili on Amazon. For this recipe, I purchased two jars of the original recipe version, not the spicy.

Other Chili Serving Ideas

You may also serve this recipe in bowls with crackers. It tastes delicious whether it’s in a bowl or over a bag of chips. Use paper cups suitable for cold or hot foods such as these below from Amazon if you prefer.

Chili makes one of the best and easiest fall or winter comfort food recipes. And remember to save the leftovers – means more easy menu planning for the week. Or freeze some for later.

Enjoy the Chili Corn Chip Boats!
