With the sudden drop in temperature and the start of football season, I have been craving chili. I have made a ton of chili recipes, but wanted to create one that emphasized corn and black beans. The combination of corn and black beans just intrigues me. So I went through my spice cabinet and started grabbing spices. After a few changes, I got the flavor that I was craving. This chili ended up being one the tastiest that I have made. The addition of the corn kernels added a nice texture and flavor. You have to try this chili.

The other day I was in a rush and I stopped by the local supermarket to pick up something fast. A little dish called tamale pie caught my eye. Basically it was a chili topped with cornbread topping. It was delicious, so I decided to make one of my own. I made a quick chili full of ingredients and topped it with a delicious corn bread.
The cornbread soaks up a lot of the juices so don’t worry if it looks a little runny before you put it in the oven.
Last week was the big game. I was really excited that the Saints won. Mostly because of my hatred for Peyton Manning. Besides that, I loved the game because I got to make my Super Chili. I recreate this awesome recipe once a year on a Super Sunday! Last Sunday was the big day. The chili is full of meat, beans and has a tad bit of heat. Served with a dollop of sour cream, it is amazing!
I like to serve the chili over freshly baked corn bread. The combination is to die for!
My Grandma Donna would always make me Chicken Chili when I would visit her. It was extremely tasty and included only a handful of ingredients. Since it has been getting colder around here I decided to make some.
Top with a little cheese and this chili is amazing!!
