Cold Days Need Warm Dishes!

Seeing as the weather has been freezing here in Texas, I was really craving something to warm me up! I have been wanting a nice bowl of chili... unfortunately I didn't have all the ingredients to make it
But I did have some ingredients to try a NEW recipe...

Yes my new recipe for this week was a MEXICAN BEAN PIE. Now for those of you who are not meat lovers this is perfect. All you need is:

1 package of Corn Muffin Mix 
1 Can of drained kidney beans
1 Can of drained Pinto beans
1 small can of diced chilies
1/2 cup of chopped white onion
2 cloves of  minced garlic
1/2 of a chopped jalapeno
chopped red bell pepper
Shredded cheese
1 tsp Chili powder
1/2 tsp Cumin
1/4 cup veg juice or veg broth

In a pan of hot oil sautee the onions, garlic, bell pepper, and jalapeno, then add the beans, chilies, cumin, chili powder, veg broth. Kind of mush the beans a little. Then in a bowl prepare the corn mix like it says and add shredded cheese and cilantro to the mix(add however much you like) Once the beans are cooked hot pour them in a greased baking pan top it with the un-cooked muffin mix  and bake at 400 for 20-25 min. Top with sour cream and your favorite salsa!

Now I absolutely loved this, and this is all I made for dinner...which honestly it was filling but you could even make it as a side dish along with enchiladas, tacos, fajitas... Whatever you Like
