Winning Cook-off Recipe #2 - Chili Pie

This year's winner for best overall chili comes from repeat cook-off winner Suzanne, who wowed the crowd with this delicious concoction. :-)

Suzanne's Chili Pie

oil for sauteing
1 large onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
3 links Field Roast Italian sausage, sliced
1 jar Muir Glen organic mild salsa
1 large can kidney beans
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 can tomato sauce
1 cup fresh or frozen corn

1 cup almond milk
1 teaspoon vinegar
1 cup cornmeal
1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon sugar
1 cup fresh or frozen corn
1/2 cup green onions, chopped
1 cup Daiya cheddar shreds

Add oil and onion to large pot and cook until onions are tender. Add garlic and cook a minute more. Add remaining chili layer ingredients, bring to a slow boil, reduce heat, and simmer for about 30 minutes. About halfway through chili cook time, preheat oven to 350 degrees and begin to assemble cornbread ingredients.

To make cornbread batter, mix together liquid ingredients and set aside. Mix together dry ingredients (cornmeal through sugar) and combine with wet ingredients. Stir in corn, green onions, and Daiya.

When chili is done simmering, pour it into a 9 x 13 casserole dish. Pour cornbread batter over the top and pop it in the oven. Bake for 45-50 minutes or until cornbread is lightly browned.
