Chicken Chili & Cheesy Corn Cake

I've never used ground chicken, but this seemed like a good way to test it out. Yum!

1 lb ground chicken
your favorite chili mix (I use Shelby Carolll's)
8 oz tomato sauce
1 bottle of beer
1 can black beans, slightly drained
shredded cheddar, sour cream & chopped red onion to garnish
chichi's corn cake mix (1/4 cup water, 1 can creamed corn, 1/4 cup melted butter)
1/4 cup chopped green onion
1/3 cup shredded cheddar

Preheat oven to 375.

In a bowl, mix corn cake mix, water, creamed corn and melted butter. Add green onion and cheese. Pour into greased loaf pan and bake for 45 minutes.

In the meantime, brown ground chicken in a hot pot.

Drain fat and add tomato sauce and beer. Simmer for five minutes.

Add chili seasoning, salt and cayenne pepper from chili kit according to taste. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes.

Add black beans and masa powder (mix powder with 1/3 cup water) into chili and mix in. Let simmer for another five minutes. Garnish with cheese, sour cream and red onion. Serve with piece of corn cake.
