Beef and Black Bean Chili With Green Onion Corn Cakes

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by kitchenslave03

This is another Rachael Ray recipe I make all the time. The only modification I made was to cut the meat in half, from two to one pound. I simmer mine for about 45 min when I have the time.It is also good without the corn cakes.

Great chili. I used the full 2 pounds of ground beef. The recipe is missing an amount on the diced tomatoes. I looked up the recipe on Food Network and it called for a 14.5 oz can of diced tomatoes. Thanks for sharing.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large pot, brown beef over med-high, seasoning with salt and pepper. Drain grease and add worcestershire, onion, garlic, red peppers, and jalapeno. Cook 5 min then add chili powder and cumin, and cook 2 more minute Stir in broth and scrape up drippings. Stir in tomatoes, tomato sauce, and beans. When it comes to a bubble, reduce heat to a simmer and cook 15 minutes. Stir in cilantro just before serving.
  2. Mix together muffin mix, milk, eggs, oil and scallions. Batter should be thick. Heat a nonstick skillet or griddle over moderate heat. Nest a pat of butter into a folded paper towel and wipe hot pan surface with it to lightly grease. Pour corn cake batter onto hot pan in 3-4 inch rounds. Cook 2-3 min on each side, until golden. Transfer to a plate and repeat.
  3. To serve, top bowls of chili with corn cakes. Eat the chili and corn cake as you would a pot pie, grabbing some of the corn cake with each spoonful of chili.
