Easy and Hearty Workday Dinner ...

I got this recipe from Trader Joe's August-September store flyer. It was so easy I'm almost embarrassed to post it. You could make this harder if you wanted to use homemade chili and cornbread. But this was a great fast and easy meal and really tasty just the way I made it. I did make a few changes, like adding the black beans and the kidney beans as well as the spices. I think I'd add corn to the chili next time I make this. Serves 4-6.
Trader Joe's Turkey Chili with Beans - 2 cans
Trader Joe's Cornbread Mix (prepare with egg, 1/2 cup oil, 3/4 cup milk)
1 can black beans, rinsed & drained
1 can dark red kidney beans, rinsed & drained
1 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes (optional)
Shredded Mexican Blend Cheese
Sour Cream
Preheat oven to 350 F
Spread chili in a 9x13 casserole dish. Top with prepared uncooked cornbread mix, bake 25-35 minutes, until cornbread is fully cooked and beginning to brown at the edges.
Serve piping hot and garnish with shredded cheese, sour cream and your favorite chili toppings.

  1. This sounds yummy. AND, I am so excited, they finally opened a Trader Joes in my town (just last week!) and its only a couple of blocks from my home! I haven't been there yet but will go before the week is out.
