We had my father-in-law and Mr. Wonderful’s aunt over for dinner on Monday so I was tasked with the job of making dinner. Once again, I am not a gourmet chef, so I felt like I needed to make something that I would be able to make with a baby on my hip or in a back carrier. That led me to chili. Easy peasy because all you have to do is throw all the yummies into a crockpot and call it a day. Well, that wasn’t all I wanted to make. I thought about going to buy some of that cornbread that they sell already made at the grocery store, but that stuff has SO MUCH SUGAR in it that I didn’t want to do that to my family. I also wanted to use things I had in my pantry. I’ve made these cheesy biscuits before and they were a HUGE hit with my husband (He LOVES Jim ‘N Nick’s in Birmingham, AL, and told me he’d marry me when I learned to bake these… Seriously.), so I found the recipe again and made 12 yummy biscuits that left me with 1 leftover because even Baby J loved them. Both chili and the Cheesy Biscuits were a huge hit, so these will both be made again and again as staples in our diet. 🙂
1 jar of already made salsa (like Pace)
2 small cans of tomato sauce
1 can of chili beans
1 can of black beans
1 can of sweet corn
1/2 a jalepeno (diced)
1/4 of a red onion (diced)
1 lb. of ground beef
garlic, pepper, Tony’s seasoning to taste
1. Open up all the cans, drain the sauce from the chili beans, black beans, and corn, and throw it all into a crockpot.
2. Cook the beef until brown, throw that into the crockpot too.
3. Cook on Medium heat until ready to serve and eat because it’s yummy!
