“This is a family favorite. Sometimes I substitute chickpeas or other beans for the kidney beans. I suppose if you like ground beef, you could substitute ground beef for the kidney beans as well. If you love cheese, by all means, use more ... if I've got enough I do!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Saute garlic, onion and green peppers in oil.
  2. Add cumin and chili. Cook for 2 minutues.
  3. Add flour. Cook for 1 minute.
  4. Add tomatoes and kidney beans. Add salt and pepper to taste. Simmer for 20 minutes or longer. (Sometimes I'll simmer it for longer. The flavour is better the longer you simmer it.).
  5. While the tomato mixture is simmering, make the cornbread mixture.
  6. Mix together the eggs, mild and oil.
  7. Add the cornmeal, salt and baking soda. Mix.
  8. Add the corn. Mix.

  10. Pour 2/3 cup cornmeal mixture into the bottom of the pan.
  11. Sprinkle 1 1/2 cups of cheddar cheese on top of the cornmeal mixture.
  12. Pour tomato mixture on top of cheese.
  13. Spoon the rest of the cornmeal mixture around the outer edges of the pan, on top of the tomato mixture.
  14. Sprinkle remaining cheese in the middle of the pan, on top of tomato mixture.
  15. Bake at 350°F for 45 minutes.
