Chili is a game day classic that needs to be enjoyed more often. Put your leftover roast beef to good use in this leftover roast beef chili.

With plenty of beans, onions, and tomatoes, this chili recipe is a great way to stretch your roast beef into another meal.

You won&rsquot even notice you&rsquore eating the same thing twice!

Let this soup simmer all day, and your house will be filled with the tantalizing aroma of cayenne pepper, chili powder, and tender vegetables.


  • Try kidney or pinto beans instead of black beans.
  • Add leftover cooked chicken, turkey or ground beef.
  • Cook your own dry beans. One can (15 ounces) is about 1 1/2 to 1 3/4 cups drained beans.

Taco Casserole With Ground Beef

Here&rsquos all the ingredients you need.

The recipe needs 1 1/2 cups elbow noodles. Bring water to a boil and cook according to the box. Drain and set aside.

Brown ground beef in a pan, along with diced green pepper. You can add a onion in here if you want too.

Once beef is browned, about 10 minutes, add in cooked elbow noodles, diced tomatoes, tomato soup and taco seasoning. Mix it with a spoon to completely combine.

Pour beef mixture into a 8×8 baking dish.

Add 1/2 cup of shredded cheddar cheese on top.

Bake for 30 minutes or until cheese is completely melted. Once removed from the oven, add crushed tortilla chips on top.

Serve and enjoy!

  • Top with your favorite taco or nacho toppings like sour cream, pickled jalapeño slices and/or chopped fresh cilantro.
  • Easily add some fiber and flavor by adding 1 cup each canned black beans and whole kernel corn with the soup before baking!

Heat the oven to 400°F.   While the oven is heating, season the beef with salt and pepper.  Cook the beef in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat until well browned, stirring often to separate meat.  Pour off any fat.

Stir in the soup, picante sauce, water, chili powder, tortillas and 1/2 cup cheese.  Season with salt and pepper.  Spoon the beef mixture into an 8x8x2-inch baking dish.  Cover the baking dish.

Bake for 30 minutes or until the beef mixture is hot.  Sprinkle with the remaining 1/2 cup cheese (the heat from the beef mixture will melt it) and serve hot.
