“This recipe comes from a little recipe phamphlet that has some very good recipes. I thought this dish looked very good and I'm posting it for safe-keeping. I have not tried it yet, but hope to do so soon. As a time saver you could make the chili one day and assemble the next. If you can't find a box of corn muffin mix you can use any mix that makes 6 servings.”
