If today was your children's first day back to school, they will surely appreciate this delicious dinner made just for them tonight!
1 package corn bread/muffin mix
1 cup chopped green pepper
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped celery
1 tbsp olive oil
1 package (1 pound) hot dogs, halved lengthwise and cut into bite size pieces
1 can (15 oz) chili with beans
2 tbsp brown sugar
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp chili powder
1 cup (4oz) shredded cheddar cheese
Prepare the corn bread batter according to package directions. Spread half the batter into a greased 8-in. square baking dish; set aside.
In a large skillet, saute the green pepper, onion and celery in oil until crisp-tender. Stir in hot dogs; saute 3-4 minutes longer or until lightly browned. Stir in the chili, brown sugar, garlic powder and chili powder; heat through. Stir in 3/4 cup of cheese. Spoon hot dog mixture over corn bread batter; top with remaining batter. Sprinkle remaining cheese over the top.
Bake, uncovered, at 350 for 28-32 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.
