Beef Green Chili Cornbread Skillet

When I saw this recipe on my blogging pal Renee's blog,  I knew it was a recipe I wanted to try.  If you haven't been to Renee's blog, Cheery Kitchen, you should check it out.  She and I have been blogging buddies for four or five years.  Renee has the best recipes and beautiful photos!

I used my favorite hatch chile's for the green chili's in this recipe.  They were a delicious addition to an already terrific recipe.  I also had corn in the freezer from extra ears of corn on the cob.  My husband said "oh this is good, I'd have this again!"  A true compliment!  Renee, thanks for a great addition to my recipe box.

  1. No doubt I would love this! Lucky girl having some hatch chiles to use... I still haven't seen one up close here in the land of cheesesteaks:@)

  2. How fun Julie, thanks for the fun shout out. I think your skillet looks amazing! I'm so glad Tim liked it and when I make it again soon, I'll try it your way, no beans and red enchilada sauce. That sounds yummy. Hugs from Boise!

  3. This sounds like a wonderful one dish meal, Julie. Thanks for sharing Renee's great recipe!

  4. I can see why your husband would want to have this again…it sounds great.
