This was yummy - a special treat dinner! I used Stagg Chili and a homemade cornbread recipe. I think it would be great for kids especially with a homemade chili to cut down on the preservatives. Made for PAC Spring '12
I found this in Simple and Delicious too, and I didn't have chili but decided to use a can of Bush's Baked Beans instead. I didn't add the brown sugar or garlic or chili powder because the baked beans were already well seasoned. I did make a homemade cornbread which was as quick as using Jif. It was so buttery that I didn't need to grease the baking dish. See Basic Buttermilk Corn Bread. Thank you so much for posting this quick and yummy recipe!
I found this in Simple and Delicious magazine, too. I didn't have chili without beans so I used chili without and added a can of drained and rinsed dark red kidney beans. Used 1/2 cup of green pepper. My hot dog package only contained 12 ounces rather than 16 ounce due to the profit margins of the manufacturer, I suppose. I served it with a small green salad. Coleslaw would be good to serve with it too.Definitely not the healthiest casserole but popular with the family especially my 7 year old son.
