Great use for leftover chili! Great use for leftover chili!
Number of Servings: 4


    4 Cups / 1 quart Leftover Homemade Chunky Chicken Chili
    1/3 cup cornmeal
    1/3 cup all-purpose flour
    1 teaspoons baking powder
    1 teaspoon sugar
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1 egg white
    1 tablespoons vegetable oil
    1/3 cup nonfat buttermilk (powdered is fine) or sour milk


Bring the chili to a boil over medium heat. Simmer for a few minutes so that it is good and hot. Transfer the chili to a heat-proof baking pan.

Meanwhile mix up the Cornbread Topping. In a medium bowl combine the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, sugar and salt. In a large measuring cup combine the egg substitute, oil and buttermilk. Stir this to a nice froth and pour it into the cornmeal and flour mixture. Mix the batter to a thick consistency. Drop it by spoonfuls onto the hot chili mixture. Bake the pie at 400° for 20 minutes. The cornbread should be golden brown, and puffy.
