Let me introduce you to one of my favorite friends in the kitchen
my crock pot!
I actually have two crock pots and I use them both. Recently I have started physical therapy,for my knee. This means that I am out of the house from 4:15 until almost 6:00 PM, two nights a week! This schedule is right in the middle of dinner preparation and eating for our family. So, I am using my crock pot as much as possible!
With this winter weather one of my favorite meals in the crock pot is chili! I have been experimenting with a couple of different recipes for a red chili. I have found the best recipes to have a number of different types of beans, some cumin and chocolate in the recipe.
My friend, Brenda, was wondering if I'm going to be putting all of my recipes on my new blog. I can't promise that I will post all of them, but here is one that goes great with any chili.
2 pkg. Jiffy corn muffin mix
1/2 cup oil (I use Canola)
1 cup sour cream (light)
1 15 ounce can creamed corn.
Mix all ingredients together and bake in a greased 9 x 13 pan @350 for 25-30 minutes. This is a very moist corn bread!
