Fall Chili and Cornbread - Dairy and Gluten Free

7:00 AM

Fall is finally here! Though it won't feel like it here in the south for another couple of weeks.
Even so, I'm breaking out the crock-pot and getting back to those warm delicious fall meals I love.

Cornbread and I haven't had the best of experiences before. It was always my doing. Messing up the recipe or using too deep of a pan. But, I was determined to make a new and easier recipe. And guess what?? It was a success!

I also spiced up my original Crock Pot Chili recipe and now it's better then ever!
Bean Chili (Vegan/Vegetarian)
  • 2 15.5oz Cans of Red Kidney Beans, drained
  • 1 15.5oz Can of White Kidney Beans, drained
  • 1 14.5 oz Can of Diced tomatoes, not drained (may need a second if it's the chili is to thick)
  • 1 15oz can of tomato sauce
  • 1 15oz can of corn
  • A Chopped up Onion *optional*
  • 1-4 TBS Chili Powder (add as much or as little to taste)
  • 1 tsp of ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp of garlic powder
  • Sprinkle of Cayenne powder
  • Hickory Flavored Liquid Smoke
  • 1 bag of Beyond Beef crumbles *optional but HIGHLY recommended*
Add everything to a crock-pot, set, and forget! 4 hours on high to 6 hours on low.
You can also make it on the stove too! 
Whatever you fancy!

Sweet Southern CornBread
  • 1 Cup of GF Cornmeal
  • 1 cup of gluten free flour (I used this)
  • 1/4 cup of organic sugar (or honey)
  • 1 TBLS of baking powder
  • 1 tsp of salt
  • 1/3 cup of oil (I used EVOO)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup of dairy free milk (I had two cartons of unsweet and sweet cashew milk in the fridge. So I used 1/2 cup of unsweet and 1/2 of  sweet vanilla cashew milk)
Mix all together!
Pour into a greased 8x8 (or closest size pan you have just make sure it isn't to deep)
Bake at 400 degrees for 22 minutes

Happy Fall Friends!
