☺♥☺Share Your Recipe Sunday☺♥☺

Well, it's a lovely Sunday evening here in Maine. A balmy 14° at almost 6:00 pm.This Sunday I am joining a new meme called Share Your Recipe Sunday hosted by Sandy from Organize With Sandy.

Tonight I've decided to share my Uber-easy Vegetarian Chili and for the first time ever anywhere I am going to share my Blue Ribbon Cornbread recipe. I am SO glad to have this meme because I love to share recipes but it always seems kind of boastful to me to share them without a prompt! Laugh  
So here come's the yumminess!
Uber-easy Vegetarian Chili
1 small onion, diced
1 teaspoon oil (whatever you have on hand, even butter/margarine is fine)
1-15 ounce can of diced tomatoes, undrained (I use petite diced)
1-15 ounce can of whole kernel sweet corn (can be a smaller can if you like)
1-15 ounce can dark red kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1-15 ounce can black beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 can of water (use a  bean can)
1 packet of taco seasoning mix OR 
1 Tablespoon chili powder mixed with 1 teaspoon each garlic powder & cumin
1/4 cup ketchup OR chili sauce (chili sauce will make it a little spicy)
Salt to taste

Saute onion in the oil until softened and translucent. Add all canned veggies, stir well to combine. Add seasoning and ketchup/sauce and stir again. Reduce heat to  low and simmer 20-25 minutes to heat through. 
**You can make this a regular chili by omitting one or both cans of beans and adding 1 pound ground beef which you would brown after sauteing the onion and before adding the veggies/seasonings.

Blue Ribbon Cornbread
This cornbread has won me several blue ribbons on both coasts at the LA County Fair and Orange County Fair in California and at the Skowhegan State Fair, Athens Valley Fair and Blue Hill Fair here in Maine. 
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup cornmeal
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1-15 ounce can of creamed corn
1/2 cup milk
1 egg, beaten
4 tablespoons butter, melted
Combine the first five ingredients. Add corn, milk, egg and butter; stir until dry ingredients are moistened. Pour batter into a greased 8-in. square baking pan. Bake at 400° for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown and a toothpick inserted near center of bread comes out clean. Serve warm. Makes 9 squares.
Those are all for tonight! Hope you have a great week and happy eating!
