Today I’m sharing two recipes due to reader request. First up is a crock pot concoction that I adapted from a  Cooking Light – Slow Cooker recipe. The original recipe called for a 3.5 quart crock pot, and so in addition to some other tweaks, I doubled the amount of cornbread it called for to be sure it covered my larger surface area. While I think it worked out just fine, know that a smaller crock pot should use half the cornbread mix, and if you have a larger crock pot just be aware the bread layer will be thicker than the casserole layer. So yummy!

Chili Cornbread & Spicy Black Bean & Corn Casserole

  • 3 bell peppers, roasted & pureed (I just popped mine in my mini chop)
  • 1 can of diced green chilies, 2 tbsp removed and set aside
  • 1 can of no (or low) sodium black beans, drained & well rinsed
  • 1/2 cup of cilantro, roughly chopped
  • 10 oz can of mild enchilada sauce
  • 1/2 cup of your favorite salsa (I used Frontera)
  • 1/4 cup of chopped green onions
  • 1 cup of frozen corn

Add all ingredients to your crock pot, stir, cover and cook on “LOW” for 4 hours.

  • 2 boxes of cornbread mix (I used Jiffy)
  • 1 cup of egg whites
  • Remaining 2 tbsp of diced green chilies
  • 1 cup of grated cheddar cheese

Mix cornbread, egg whites and chilies and pour over the top of the corn & beans in the crock pot. Cover and continue to cook on low for another hour, or until a knife comes out of the center cleanly. Add cheese to the top, cover and cook 5 minutes until cheese is melted. Serve & enjoy!

Homemade Dog Treats

Rhett Butler is obsessed with these easy, allergen free dog treats and we don’t mind making him a batch every few weeks. They store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 months, but good luck keeping them around that long!

  • 2 sweet potatoes

Peel and slice sweet potatoes into “sticks” and arrange on parchment paper covered cookie sheet. (Currently obsessed with Martha Stewart parchment/foil paper combo.)

Bake at 250 degrees for 3 to 3.5 hours, until shriveled and tough. Cool & store!
