Live Sigma Kappa – Hominy Chili & Chile-Cheese Cornbread

It’s tailgate time… and my heart is happy. This Saturday marks the first game of TCU’s 2012 football season and the first time C and I get to try out our new tailgating spot!

It’s been a long eleven months since the official announcement that TCU was joining the Big 12, so I’m incredibly excited about this weekend’s game against Grambling State. And to celebrate, we’re loading up the Tahoe with our chairs, cooler, crock pot and tub full of purple goodies! The recipe below is a perfect one for tailgates and one that Fort Worth will see a lot of this Fall! It’s warm, filling and good-for-you, too. Now all we need is a WIN!

Hop on over to Live Sigma Kappa for my September post and let me know how you like it!

Hominy Chili

Yield: 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 (15.5 oz) can white hominy, drained
  • 1 (15 oz) can Great Northern Beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 (14.5 oz) can reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 (6 oz) pkgs refrigerated grilled chicken breast strips
  • 1 md onion, chopped
  • 1/4 c lime juice
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/2 c fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1 c Colby & Monterrey Jack cheese, shredded
  • 1 c fat-free sour cream (optional)
  • White corn tortilla chips, coarsely crushed (optional)

Instructions

The day before:

In a 4-5 quart slow cooker, combine hominy, beans, broth, chicken, onion, lime juice, cumin and pepper. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 6-7 hours or on high-heat setting for 3 to 4 hours; cool slightly. Transfer chili to storage container; cover and chill overnight.

Tailgate day:

Return chili to slow cooker. Cover and reheat on high-heat setting for 1-2 hours or until heated through. Tightly cover slow cooker and tote in an insulated carrier. Tote cilantro, cheese and sour cream in an insulated cooler with ice packs. At the tailgating site, plug slow cooker into a car adapter and keep chili warm on warm-heat setting. Top each serving with cilantro, cheese, sour cream and tortilla chips. Makes 4 servings, but is easily doubled or tripled.

Chile-Cheese Cornbread

Yield: 9-12 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 c all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 c cornmeal
  • 2-3 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 2-1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp Kosher salt
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 c skim milk
  • 1/4 c vegetable oil
  • 1 c Colby & Monterrey Jack cheese, shredded
  • 1 (4 oz) can diced green chiles, drained
  • 1-2 tsp chili powder

Instructions

The day before:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder and salt; set aside. Spray an 8x8x2-inch baking pan or disposable foil pan; set aside, as well.

In a small bowl, combine eggs, milk and oil. Add egg mixture all at once to flour mixture, stirring just until moistened (batter should be lumpy). Fold in cheese, chiles and chili powder. Pour batter into the pan, spreading evenly. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack. Wrap cornbread in pan in a double thickness of heavy foil and chill overnight.

Tailgate day:

Tote cornbread in pan in an insulated cooler with ice packs. Prepare the grill at the tailgating site. For a charcoal grill, reheat foil-wrapped cornbread on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals for about 15 minutes or until heated through. For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place foil-wrapped cornbread on grill rack over heat. Cover and reheat as above. Makes 9-12 servings.

I’m really intrigued by hominy, I’ve never tried it but I think I need to fix that! This chili sounds awesome!
