I’m back! After spring break and a ton of other stuff I can post some good food again. This is a favorite of ours. I will give the regular recipe and several other ways to make heathly changes…and one not so heathly change. This is great for parties, potlucks, game night or mexican night. Hope you enjoy!
1 1/2 pound ground beef
1 large chopped onion
3 tsp chile powder
2 cans (8oz) tomato sauce
1 can whole kernel corn drained
3/4 sliced black olives
1 box corn bread mix
Brown meat and onions until done. Drain if needed. Mix in remaining ingredients and simmer for 20-30 minutes. Put in sprayed dish. (I use 8×8 pan). Mix cornbread box per directions. pour over meat mixture. Bake according to cornbread directions. That’s it!
Now for the changes:
1 1/2 pounds of ground turkey OR cook your ground beef meat in 2 cups of water, pour off water before adding ingredients. Less fat.
Use: Ancho chili powder or 2 tablespoons California chili powder. Add Green Chili pieces to meat mixture.
Use 1/2 of the corn bread mix on top after mixing per package. Less calories.
AND the big one……add sliced cheese, American or Colby to the top of the meat mixture before spreading the cornbread mixture on top. No more than a cup. SOOO good.
Let me know how you like this one. Sorry no photo 😦
