Skillet Chili Beef with Corn Biscuits

Skillet Chili Beef with Corn BiscuitsThis easy chili and cornbread dumpling meal in a skillet is sure to satisfy your hungry family. This dish is an excellent source of protein, niacin, vitamin B6, vitamin B12, iron, selenium and zinc; and a good source of fiber.

Recipe Ingredients:

1 1/2 pounds ground beef round
2 (14.5-ounce) cans chili-seasoned diced tomatoes, undrained
1 (11-ounce) can Mexican-style corn, undrained
1 (6.5 to 8.5-ounce) package corn muffin and bread mix
1/2 cup instant mashed potato flakes
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons milk
3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Chopped fresh cilantro leaves for sprinkling

Cooking Directions:

  1. Heat large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Add ground beef; cook 8 to 10 minutes, breaking into 3/4-inch crumbles and stirring occasionally. Pour off drippings. Add tomatoes, corn and 1 tablespoon corn muffin mix; bring to boil, stirring frequently. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer 5 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Meanwhile combine remaining corn muffin mix, potato flakes and 1/2 cup milk in medium bowl. Stir until blended, adding enough of remaining milk until batter is just stiff enough to hold its shape. Stir in cheese.
  3. Drop batter in 12 mounds on top of simmering beef mixture. Cover skillet and continue cooking over medium-low heat 15 to 20 minutes or until biscuits are done (the tops will appear dry).
  4. Garnish with a sprinkling of cilantro.

Makes 6 servings.
