Last night I made a TON of chili, and now I have lots of leftovers. I'm not sure if it will all get eaten, so I was wondering if I could freeze some leftovers? It has diced tomatoes, ground beef, and kidney beans in it. Whaddya think?

Thanks!

Yes, chili freezes wonderfully.

But for a change of pace, either after you freeze it or if you get the hankering before, put the chili in a casserole dish, top with cornbread batter and shredded cheese, and bake. Voila! a new dish.

Thanks so much for your replies! I'm thinking it would be a good idea to start making more dishes I can freeze. Last night I pulled out a dish of baked ziti and baked it, it was nice to have dinner ready with about 30 seconds of work on my part.
