Bee's Chilli Bake!!!

I finally got to make this for dinner last night. After all the raves on the pig2twig forum about this dish, I didn’t know what to make of it, it couldn't possibly be better than my own chili….could it?? Well it was, we didn’t miss the kidney beans and the topping was a big WOW!!!! I felt like I was having corn bread with it, utterly tasty, great texture, and brilliant flavours. I only added half a large chili as I was being a scared-y cat, but it could have done with more…there’s always next time. I must check out if this can be frozen as I now have a fridge full of it. If I can’t freeze it, lets home it re-heats well as we will be eating it for lunch and dinner tonight! Mine made 6 generous portions! Thanks for the recipe Bee, you’re a genius!!


Top one is mine!
Below is Paul's, I couldn't decide which photo to post...so I did both!!!

I have saved a portion for tomorrows lunch and the rest has gone into the freezer for a quick meal next week!

Edited to say: This freezes brilliantly, I left it to defrost then heated some in the oven and some in the microwave...both gave excellent results!!! I will definitely batch make this next time so I have plenty to save in the freezer!

Hi Tulip! I'm Angie and I've never been on your blog before. I just read Marie's account of your day in France so here I am having a peep. Pardon the new girl's ignorance but what are Pampered Chef things and where can I find out about them? Also 'IPD friendly' - what's that? I thought perhaps 'ickle piggies diet'?
Angie, xx

Hi Angie, welcome to my blog. Pampered chef things are high quality professional cooking utensils made for the domestic kitchen. Take a look at the online brochure, if something takes your fancy, email me as I can have it shipped directly to your door!

IPD is Idiot proof diet and the online forum is called Pig to Twig – so you were nearly right. The diet is mainly low Carb which suits me and my wheat intolerance fine! A link to the forum and the cookbook I am working from can be found in the top right hand side of the blog.

Hope you call in again!

Tulip, that looks really nice. Will have to log on and get that recipe. We love chili, and I could freeze some for a quick dinner.

This looks delicous but I missed how you made the top.

Thanks for your comment LCL, the recipe is from the idiot proof diet cookbook, or you can get it from the website. Addy can be found on the right hand side of the main page.
