Cooktop Cove: Score a dinner win with a fast and easy casserole that screams delectable comfort
Chili is always an easy win when it comes to pleasing the whole family come dinner time, but this amazing recipe for chili pot pie casserole really elevates this family favorite to a whole new realm of delectability. A standard chili night usually consists of too many dirty dishes to count, because the amount of accompaniments that a chili can take on are seemingly endless. However, with this recipe, only two dishes are used to put together this sensational meal!
This casserole is composed simply of a quick homemade chili, layers of delicious biscuits and a shredded cheddar cheese topping, then cooked to perfection in the oven. We love this recipe because of how easy it is to whip up after a long day (it can be ready from start to finish in under an hour!), as well as how well the components of the dish manage to hit every flavor note perfectly. This is definitely one family meal that is not to be missed!

Cut each biscuit into quarters. Place them in an even row over the chili.
