Ingredients

1
pound
Italian sausage (sweet or hot), casings removed
2
teaspoons
chili powder
1
15-ounce can kidney beans, drained
1
14.5-ounce can diced tomatoes, drained

cup
jarred salsa
1
8 1/2-ounce box corn bread mix
1
large egg
1/3
cup
whole milk
1
cup
shredded Cheddar (4 ounces)

Directions

  1. 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.
  2. Add the chili powder and cook for 1 minute. Spoon off and discard any fat.
  3. Add the beans, tomatoes, and salsa and simmer for 3 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, in a bowl, combine the corn bread mix, egg, and milk, then stir in the Cheddar.
  5. Transfer the chili to a 9-by-9-inch or 11-by-7-inch 2-quart baking dish. Spread the corn bread batter over the top.
  6. Bake until golden, 15 to 20 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes before serving.
