Chipotle Cornbread Bake

Okay, so I promised a chili recipe LAST WEEK. . .(I know, I know, I'm a slacker this week. Why do teachers try to cram everything into the last month of school???) So, here it is, once again, thanks to Pampered Chef (can you tell I LOVE their recipes? :) )


1 medium green bell pepper
6 green onions, divided
1 lb lean ground beef
1 can chili beans in sauce, undrained
1 cup chunky salsa
2 tbsp Chipotle rub (or 1 tbsp finely chopped chipotle peppers)
1 pkg corn muffin mix (8.5 oz)
1 container sour cream
1 egg
1/2 c. shredded cheddar cheese (0ptional)
1 tomato, seeded and diced (optional)

Chop bell pepper and thinly slice onions, separating white and light green bottoms from tops. Reserve 1 tbsp of the onion tops for garnish. Place remaining tops in bowl.

In microwavable baker, combine bell pepper, onion bottoms and beef; mix well. Microwave, covered on high 7-9 minutes or until beef is no longer pink. Remove baker from microwave; carefully pour off juices. Add beans, salsa and rub to beef mixture and mix well. Cover; microwave on high 5 minutes or until hot.

Meanwhile, combine muffin mix, sour cream and egg in bowl with onions. Mix well. Scoop muffin mixture evenly over chili and spread evenly across the top. Microwave, covered on high 7-9 minutes or until center of cornbread springs back when lightly touched. Sprinkle cheese over cornbread, if desired and let stand 5 minutes. Garnish with reserved onions and tomato, if desired.

You'll notice I don't have an actual picture of this recipe. I figured over the past week I have subjected my children to enough new recipes (and frankly, I'm tired of all the complaining) so I'm holding off on making this for a bit. But, I have tried this and it is quite good. Enjoy!

GIVEAWAY: ERGObaby Carrier! -CLOSED-

Winner

I have carried my little boy in a baby carrier since he was born. I love the convenience of strapping him in and not worrying about the hassle of a bulky stroller. It's also a comfort to hold my little guy close and safe. When I had the chance to review the ERGObaby carrier, I was thrilled to try something that could extend my baby wearing days.


My first test was a true one...Costco. I admit that I didn't really look at the directions when I put the carrier on in the parking lot. But I didn't need to! After one look at a picture in the user manual, I strapped my 20 pound boy in, placed my little girl in the shopping cart, and started on my way through the aisles of Costco. I immediately noticed that the carrier more evenly distributed my son's weight than my normal carrier and held my boy high so my legs weren't bumping into his. This made it significantly easier to tote him around the store. Indeed my normal trips to Costco are exhausting. But after…

Gardner Village Series: Country Furniture & Gifts

Gardner Village is a local treasure. If you've never found your way down there, October is the month to do it!  The shop owners love Halloween! The village becomes a witch village and many times, shop owners will even dress up.   On my most recent trip to Gardner Village, I stopped in at Country Furniture & Gifts which is a store very ready for Halloween.

The store is located in part of the old restored flour mill built in 1877 by Archibald Gardner in West Jordan, Utah.  The store is very family oriented and houses many built-to-last items such as dining room tables, sofas, beds and chairs.  They are also famous for their rug room where many of their rugs are still USA made. As they say, "A rug makes a huge impact for a minimum investment to any room."


The home accessories and giftware are amazing!  They have all sorts of decor for all sorts of personalities. Please be sure to pay them a visit.  It's worth it!
