My sister actually gave me the idea for this recipe. My daughter loves chili and she loves corn bread so I knew this would be a hit in our house. I probably make this a couple times a month it is so good and I can get my daughter to eat it without a fight so that is a huge plus.
This is also a recipe where you can add lots of stuff to it and the kids never know. The basic recipe is below, but in the past I have added the following to this tomato’s, carrots, and green chilies. I have also tried different puree’s to add to it (I got the idea of adding pureed vegetable from Jessica Seinfeld cook book Deceptively Delicious
, she adds puree’s to everything) this recipe has such a strong flavor it can handle almost anything being added to it, so sneak in those veggies!
1 lbs ground beef
1 15oz can chili beans
1 8oz can tomato sauce
1 15oz can corn
1 package chili mix
1 package corn bread mix
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Add beans, corn, tomato sauce, and chili mix to the beef (if you are adding extra veggies/puree’s add them now). Bring to a boil then simmer 5 min.
Pour beef mixture in to an 8×8 pan.
In a bowl mix your corn bread according to package directions.
Pour cornbread mixture on top of beef mixture in pan.
Back in oven about 25 min or until toothpick inserted in cornbread layer comes out clean.
