Blackbean Crock  -  pot Chili And Cornbread

This is my own recipe for Black Bean Crock-pot Chili and Cornbread. I use this chili recipe often on cold days, especially days when I will be working late and I know I'm not going to want to cook when I get home. I've only made this cornbread recipe once.

One word of caution here....like I said, these are my recipes. I don't do much measuring. I kinda just add in as much of each ingredient as I feel like I want. I will try to tell you how much of each item I use but it is not exact.

I start the night before:

  • Brown the meat...ground beef or ground turkey
  • I cut peppers into small pieces, all colors: green, red, orange and yellow (not necessarily a whole one each, slice and freeze what you don't use)
  • I use a can of corn
  • I make my chili with black beans but, use whatever kind you like
  • 1 or 2 cans of tomato sauce, to your liking
  • Diced or stewed tomatoes if you would like them
  • Onion, if you would like
  • Mild or Hot chili mix in a packet

All this goes in my crock-pot and into the frig overnight. I personally always use crock-pot liners. Any grocery store should have them in the same place where you would find the zip lock bags and foil. They are amazing. Almost no cleanup! You just take the bag carefully out, toss it and quickly clean out the pot. There's nothing stuck on to clean.

So, in the morning while I'm cooking my breakfast I just take the crock-pot out the frig and place it in the base. I usually cook the chili on low. That way there is no chance of burning it in case I'm at work later than I planned.

Now the cornbread I have not tried to mix together the night before and stick in the frig. If you try this PLEASE comment and let me know how it did. I quickly mix this together after I get home. I take a shower and get my lunch and clothes ready for the next day while it is cooking.

This is the basic recipe I used:

  • 2 boxes of Jiffy Cornbread Mix
  • 2 eggs - beaten
  • about maybe 1 cup of sour cream
  • 1 can of creamed corn

Mix all those together. If it seems too dry, slowly add a little milk till you like the consistency. I think I added about 1/2 cup and mine turned out a tiny bit more moist than I like it. But I have discovered that people in different parts of the country cook cornbread very differently. Some people like it drier, some like it more moist. I usually have trouble getting mine to stay together but this is the best I've ever made. You could add a little sugar if you prefer it sweet.

I baked mine in a oiled baking dish at 450 degrees for about 30 minutes. After you see that it is getting brown, stick a butter knife in the middle to check the consistency. Cook as long as you need, checking on it frequently.

I put my cornbread in a bowl, chili on top and cheese on top of that! It was delicious!! Hope you like it as much as I did.
