How to Make It

Heat oven to 400° F.

In a large skillet, over medium heat, cook the sausage, crumbling it with a spoon, until no trace of pink remains, about 7 minutes. Add the chili powder and cook for 1 minute. Spoon off and discard any fat. Add the beans, tomatoes, and salsa and simmer for 3 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a bowl, combine the corn bread mix, egg, and milk, then stir in the Cheddar.

Transfer the chili mixture to a 9-by-9-inch or 11-by-7-inch 2-quart baking dish. Spread the corn bread batter over the top. Bake until golden, 15 to 20 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes before serving.

Fantastic and so easy! I like that you can change up the taste each time with a different salsa. I thought about trying this recipe with ground beef instead of Italian sausage, but the sausage goes so well with the cornbread... So I wouldn't change a thing!
