Cornbread Chili Casserole

Let me just say that I'm not really a chili fan but this recipe has made me one! During one of my weekly trips to Tarder Joes I stopped by in the back to see what they were sampling one day. It was their cornbread over turkey chili and it was fabulous!

The weather is finally cooling down a bit {knock on wood} so last night I finally made it!

Super easy and only 4 ingredients!


















2 bags of Jasmine Rice (cooks in 3 minutes in the microwave)
2 cans of Turkey (or beef) Chili
1 bag of shredded cheddar cheese
1 box of cornbread

I made a 9x13 batch which would easily serve 8

Step by step:
first layer is rice
pour chili over rice
sprinkle cheese over chili
















Pour cornbread mixture over cheese and pop it in the oven!
I cooked mine at 350 for 35-40 minutes.
Your cornbread will determine how long you cook this dish for since everything else is cooked!
















40 minutes later your house smells amazing and dinner is ready!















Slice... or scoop 
 and enjoy a ricey, chili, cheesey meal topped off with cornbread.

If you're a Paula Deen at heart like me then spread butter over the top of the cornbread.
This meal does not disappoint! It cost about $10 and serves 8-10 depending on portions and side dishes. If you don't have a Trader Joes near by...I'm sorry! You can find all these ingredients at your local grocery store.
It's a great meal to whip up on a cold fall night or when you have the gang over for football. 

I don't know what I would do without Trader Joes in my life and  5 minutes from my house!

The best iced coffee, ever.

When Chris and I went to Mexico this past winter we quickly become addicted to their  blended espressos. I found myself craving them when we got home so I played around with a couple of instant espressos and ended up making the best iced coffee, ever. 


What you’ll need.  Medaglia D’oro instant espresso Water IceCoffee creamer of your choiceHeavy cream + caramel Trust me on the instant espresso. I tried them all. This is the best. I get it at Kroger. I’ve also heard Walmart carries it as well as trusty amazon. 
Step one.  Get your ingredients out. 

I fill my glass up halfway with water and pour a capful of instant espresso in. 

Mix it real good. 

Time to cool it down. 

Now comes the sweet part. 



This next step is money.  Lordy. 

If you’re feeling really naughty you can add caramel sauce.  Do it. 

If you’ve been wanting the recipe for the BEST homemade caramel ever then you’re in luck.  This is the recipe from my mother in law.  It is life changing. 


Ta-Da!
