I pulled this
recipe out of a Real Simple magazine a few years ago.
It's quick, simple and so yummy on cold evenings.
1 pound italian sausage (sweet or hot), casings removed
2 t chili powder
1- 15 oz can kidney beans, drained
1- 14.5 oz can diced tomatoes, drained
3/4 c jarred salsa
1- 8.5 oz box corn bread mix
1 large egg
1/3 c milk
1 c shredded cheddar
Heat oven to 400 F.
In large skillet over medium heat cook that sausage, crumbling it, until no trace of pink remains, about 7 minutes. Add the chili powder and cook for another minute. Discard any fat. Add the beans, tomatoes and salsa; simmer for 3 minutes.
In a bowl combine the corn bread mix, egg and milk; then stir in the cheddar.
Transfer chili mixture to a 2 quart baking dish. Spreadth corn bread batter over the top. Bake until golden: 15-20 minutes. Let set 5 minutes before serving.
