Chili Pie

I tried a new recipe. Actually I didn't even have a recipe, I just got this idea from my MIL. She said she used to make something like this for her kids when they were younger.


1 lb of 93/7 ground beef
1 small onion, chopped
1 chili packet
1 can kidney beans
1 can corn
1/4 cup of shredded cheddar
1 package of cornbread mix (+ ingredients needed to make cornbread, according to package)

  • brown gr. beef and onion in pan with a touch of oil
  • add chili packet, kidney beans, & corn; heat through
  • prepare med. baking pan with non-stick spray
  • mix cornbread according to package instructions
  • layer meat & cheddar cheese
  • pour cornbread mix evenly over top
  • bake according to cornbread instructions or until golden brown

We topped ours with a bit of sour cream.

It turned out really good.

The Hubs was happy to take the leftovers to work the next day.
