1 small onion
1 can garbanzo beans
½ a green pepper
2 celery stalks
Left over Spanish rice
1 beer (Labatt Blue )
1 can diced tomatoes
1 8 ounce can tomato sauce
¼ cup salsa
¼ cup bloody mary mixer (extra spicy)
1 can kidney beans
Shredded cheese & Sour Cream for the finished product
First, I chopped up the celery, green pepper and onion.
Cracked Corn Cheese Squares
I was looking through my Rachael Ray 30 Minute Meals Cookbook to get some inspirations the other day when I found a yummy cornbreadish recipe that I thought would go great with a chili type of soup. Plus, my husband is a huge fan of cornbread and I am indifferent and we had a box mix taking up space. Enter this recipe.
1 package corn muffin mix
Softened butter for baking dish
Handful of shredded cheese
½ cup corn kernels (plus another handful)
Following directions on the corn muffin box, I dumped the mix and an egg into the bowl.
Then I added the milk that the box recipe called for and dumped in the corn. I started off with the recommend amount and then added more cuz I thought it could use some.
Then I added the cheese. Next time, I would probably add more cheese because I love it so much. But I didn't want to go too overboard and make it weird.
Here is a finished product of my bowl of soup, mixed with sour cream and shredded cheese.
And my husband got into the pan before I could take a photo of the bread!
Verdict? I liked the soup but the beer was a little overpowering. It was spicy, filling and yummy. My husband barely ate any, but I blame that on the leftover Spanish Rice I put in the recipe because of him being stubborn about how I make rice. Otherwise, I am sure he would have been fine with the soup. (I hate picky eaters, which he is one!)
The bread was so so to me but then again, I am not a fan of it to begin with. My husband loved it.
