Chili cheese pies

This is my new personal pie maker. Don't mind the mess in the picture. Trial and Error.....it's messy.

I got a new iPhone 4S on Friday. The camera is amazing, it even has a flash.

Awesomesauce.

Because my new phone rocks, and because I heart Liz of a Belle, a Bean and a Chicago dog

I’m linking up for iPhone photo phun.

I made chili on Tuesday. Yummy turkey chili.

Now, I’m making personal chili pies. They are portable, cheesy and taste wonderful.

Place dough onto the pie maker. Any homemade or store-bought dough works.

Make sure the dough is slack, it needs room to move or it will break and you will be wearing the filling.

Trust me on this.

My dough is ugly, but trust me this is tasty.

Add a pinch of cheese to the dough.

Add some chili. I added corn to my chili. Just because.

Don’t over fill the pies, or they will be drippy. Using the handles of the pie maker seal the pies.

Place the pies on a baking sheet. Cut off any extra dough and set it aside for the other pies.

Brush the tops with olive oil and make a few small slits in the tops of the pies.

Bake the pies @ 400 degrees F for 15-20 minutes.

Remove from the oven and allow to cool slightly.

This is my favorite pie.

These pies go beyond chili in a bowl, they go beyond chili and cornbread.

They are crispy, creamy and portable.

This is my pie, you'll have to make your own.

I bought the pie maker at Target. It was less than $5.

  1. I trust you. And you said awesomesauce! Very cool doohickey too.

  2. I have a set of those empanada makers! Aren’t they the best?? These look yummy.

    • Thanks! It was fun. Messy, but fun. I’ll try a fruit pie next, but this is my husband’s new favorite way to eat chili.

  3. What cute and delicious looking pies!

  4. I just pinned this :) Looks AMAZING.

  5. That pie maker looks like SO MUCH FUN. Uh-oh, now I’m going to get a craving for new kitchen gadgets :D That never ends well…or cheaply.

    • At least this gadget is under $5. The ice cream maker I’ve been eyeballing is not. :(

      • Woah, cheaper than I’d expect! And now I’m dreaming of savory pies… And hmm, do you have a Costco? I saw an ice cream maker there for only around $20, but I wasn’t really paying attention to how much it makes, and I’m sure it wasn’t particularly fancy. I was still tempted…

  6. Looks good, but do you have a recipe for the pie crust?

  7. I might try this tonight as we have leftover chili from Tuesday night, but I’m going to do it on my Egg (if I feel motivated). So was it just refrigerated pie crust? Like pillsbury?

    • Yes, it was Pillsbury refrigerated pie crust. I’m sure any brand would work fine though.
      I’ll be interested to hear how it does on your grill.

  8. AH!! I love your personal pie maker, that is awesome. I used to work at Williams-Sonoma and they had a Breville personal pie maker that I drooled over every day I went to work. They ended up selling out and I always regret not buying one. But, this was the size of a panini machine, so it wasn’t as practical as your pie maker. :) You little pies/empanadas look delicious!

  9. These look fun and delicious! I need one of those cool pie thingies too.

    • I love it. Once I figured out how to use it. :)

  10. Liz

    I like that you love me, but I’m seriously loving that you adore your new 4S!

    Enjoy!!!

    • It’s a fun new toy! I had the 3Gs, this is a big upgrade.

  11. I have seen these pie presses – glad it works so well :)

    • It was a process of trial, mess, error and then success.

  12. Oh my gosh…do those look delicious!

    • Thanks for the comment Elena!

  13. I want one of those! Desperately obsessed now. Love the idea of doing pies/hot pockets/empanadas

  14. Cheese and chilli – I´m coming over, will bring the beers! And you made me laught with “and you´ll be wearing the sauce”…brilliant!
