How many of you watched the football games this past Sunday and had a bowl, or several bowls, of chili during the games? Don’t lie. I know you did. So did I! Now the planning starts for all of the big Super Bowl parties on February 6th, 2011. The teams to watch this year are the Steelers and the Packers as they battle it out in the Dallas Cowboys Stadium on Super Bowl Sunday. Know which team you’re rooting for already? I’m keeping my favorite a secret just a little while longer. What I won’t keep secret though is an incredible chili pie recipe with cornbread that will feed a small party of Super Bowl fans. If you want to feed an army then try our halftime chili.
Chili Pie Recipe
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1 8.5oz can diced tomatoes (half of one regular can)
1 8.5oz can kidney beans, undrained (half of one regular can)
1/2 cup red wine
1 8.5oz can of creamed corn (again half of one regular can)
1/4 cup milk
1 large egg
1.5 pounds ground beef
1 small onion, chopped
1.5 teaspoons minced garlic
1 Tablespoon chili powder
1 and 1/4 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon basil
1 package cornbread mix (like Jiffy)
grated cheddar cheese for garnish
Use a 10 inch ovenproof skillet. Heat the olive oil in the skillet and add ground beef, onions, and garlic. Saute until ground beef is browned well.
Add the chili powder, salt, oregano, basil and the can of tomatoes to the cooked ground beef. Stir well, cover, and cook over low heat for approximately 30 minutes.
Add can of kidney beans and the red wine to the chili and cook for an additional 10 minutes.
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
In a separate mixing bowl, pour the cornbread mix and stir in the creamed corn, egg, and milk. Stir until just mixed well.
Remove cover from skillet and skim off any fat.
Spoon the cornbread mixture evenly over the chili in the skillet.
Bake at 400 degrees for 25 minutes or until cornbread is cooked through and light brown on top.
Remove from oven and let sit for 5 minutes before serving.
Spoon into bowls and serve with grated cheddar cheese.
Yummy! Hope you enjoy!
