Today I am featuring a deliciously quick and easy recipe. I got this recipe from a really good friend that I met years back. Almost 5 years ago to be exact. Her name is Cody, I met Cody on a coupon trading board and we became trading buddies and instant friends right off the top. I think we hit if off so well because we have the same interests we are both stay at home mommy's, coupon clippers, money savers, bargain hunters and we both share the love of cooking. oh i forgot she is a menu planner as well i guess i could say we are two peas in a pod. The only sad part of the whole thing is that we live so far apart, so we rely on online communication through emails and myspace.
These are the ingredients you will need. I forgot to add the onion in the picture, sorry my bad. Remember the full recipe is always included at the end of the post.
Brown hamburger with onion and drain grease.
this was not in the original recipe but i love this part. I add 1/2 cup extra shredded cheese to the corn muffin batter. But its your preference.
sprinkle the shredded cheddar cheese on top
Pour prepared corn muffin mix on top of the chili and cheese cover completely
gently smooth the batter evenly over the mixture. Bake at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.

Mix Brown hamburger with onion and drain. Add Tomatoes, chili beans and seasonings. Simmer for 15 minutes. Put into greased 9x13 pan and sprinkle cheddar cheese on top. Mix corn bread mix according to box directions. (I add some cheese to the corn muffin mix before pouring it on top) Pour corn muffin mix on top of the chili and cheese cover completely.

* I use a packet of chili seasoning mix and omit all the spices. Add about a 1/4 cup of additional water to the meat mixture.
