Fall Comfort

Yum


Bob called me on the way home from work saying he really would like to do chili for dinner tonight. He said he'd stop at the store on the way home from work to pick up some chili ground beef from our favorite butcher.



While he was gone, I made some cornbread to go along with our chili. I love this little mix, Jiffy. It makes just enough for the two of us. The cornbread is a little sweet, which I like, too.

Our chili is very simple:

Brown 1 pound of chili-ground beef. Salt and pepper beef during the cooking. Dice 1 medium onion and add the beef, saute until onion is transparent. Add 1 can of chili beans and 1 can of chili ready diced tomatoes. Heat through.

We like to top our chili with shredded cheddar and chopped green onions. Yummy!

  1. Sounds great and the Jiffy mix is good. I like the sweet in it also. If you have a sandwich maker put the jiffy mix in with a weinner cut in half. It makes the best home made corndogs.

  2. My husband loves sweet cornbread so Jiffy works for me. It's so easy and good. I like it too, but my favorite is homemade, no sweet cornbread. My Mom makes the best.

  3. Jiffy is great! Truly! And I do think that chili and cornbread will be the ticket for tomorrow's dinner!

  7. We eat chili here all of the time. Kenny and the boys love it. I've never used Jiffy. I tend to make mine from scratch because I'm dumb. Seriously never thought about buying a mix...

    Sometimes I put beans in our chili and sometimes not. It depends on my mood. I'm finicky like that!

    Love,
    Julie

  8. That is one of the meals that tells me fall is here. For some reason I never make that in the summer. Love it!

  10. I made chili, at the lake, over the weekend. T'was wonderful. You're right, it's perfect fall comfort food! Cheddar cheese and chopped onion are toppers for ours, too.

    I use those jiffy mixes, too. They're wonderful, for two.

    I'm having my 100th post giveaway. Come on over to the back porch!

  11. My mother loved the Jiffy mix and so of course, I use it too! I always double my chili recipe so that I can freeze half for another meal. We love sour cream and cheddar cheese in ours, mainly because I always seem to trip with the chili powder can and it is VERY WARM!
    We are asking our friends for a "Thy Will be done for Joey Andrus" prayer as he is not doing well today. Thanking you in advance...Sandi

  12. Chili sounds really really good right now and somehow my egg salad sandwich just lost all of it's luster! Yummy with cornbread too!

  13. Oh gosh! You've made me hungry for chili and it isn't even 5 AM yet. This is exactly the way we eat our chili down to the green onions. Our son and DIL always make Jiffy cornbread to go with it when we have it with them. I so wish I could eat gluten. I miss cornbread something awful. xoxo

  15. Ok, now I'm craving chili. I'm going to try this. How long does it usually take to cook?
