Expert Tips

To make a corn bread topping that covers all of the chili mixture, make as directed--except for step 2, stir 1/2 cup Bisquick mix, 1/2 cup cornmeal, 1/4 cup water and 1/4 cup milk until blended (no egg needed); stir in half of the cheese. Continue as directed in step 3--except bake 15 to 20 minutes or until crust is golden brown.

If you don’t have an ovenproof skillet, use an ovenproof 2-quart casserole dish. Cover and microwave chili in casserole on High 2 to 3 minutes, stirring after 1 minute, until hot. Continue as directed in step 2.
