How to Make It

Heat oven to 350º F. In a medium skillet, over medium heat, heat the oil with the onion, celery, garlic, and jalapeño and cook until the vegetables are tender but not browned, about 10 minutes. Add the salt, cumin, chili powder, cocoa, and cinnamon. Add the meat and cook until well browned. Stir in kidney beans and diced tomatoes. Lightly coat a 13-by-9-inch casserole or baking dish with vegetable cooking spray. Spoon the beef and beans into the casserole. Top with 2 cups shredded Cheddar. Heat oven to 375º F. Prepare corn-bread mixes according to the label directions; pour the batter over the cheese. Bake for 40 minutes or until the top is golden brown.
