The air has started cooling here. The leaves are turning. And I find myself craving the cold weather comfort foods! My husband has spent the last few days tackling our winter firewood supply and I thought he would enjoy a hot bowl of chili and cornbread for dinner. It has always been one of our favorites, and is something you can whip up and serve immediately. Or, you can put it in the crockpot and let it cook all day so it’s ready when you are. Try it out and let us know what you think!
1 1/2 lbs ground beef
1 large green bell pepper (chopped)
1 large white onion (chopped)
3 cloves garlic (minced)
3 TBSP chili powder
1 can 14.5 oz diced tomatoes, undrained
1 can 14.5 oz red kidney beans, rinsed
1 can 14.5 oz white chili beans, rinsed
1/3 cup A.1. Original sauce
1/2 cup water
1) Brown your ground beef, onions, peppers, and garlic in a frying pan.
2) Combine browned ground beef mixture with beans, tomatoes, chili powder, A.1. Sauce, and water in a large pot or crock pot. Cover and simmer about 45 minute on high or at least 3-4 hours on low.
While mine is cooking I like to make homemade honey corn bread to go with it!
1 cup ground cornmeal
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 Tbsp baking powder
1 cup milk
1/4 cup butter (softened)
1/2 cup honey
1) combine all ingredients in a bowl mix until all clumps are gone.
2) pour into a greased pan. Drizzle honey on top if you like. Bake at 375 degree (190 Celsius) for about 30-35 minutes.
Serve with your favorite toppings like sour cream, shredded cheese, and fresh white onions. Enjoy!!
