Ingredients

  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 medium green pepper, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 2 cans (14-1/2 ounces each) diced tomatoes, drained
  • 1 can (16 ounces) chili beans, undrained
  • 1/4 cup tomato sauce
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cornmeal
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons fat-free milk

Directions

In a large saucepan, saute onion and green pepper in oil until tender. Stir in the tomatoes, beans, tomato sauce, chili powder, brown sugar and cumin. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low; heat, uncovered, while preparing crust.
In a small bowl, combine the flour, cornmeal, baking powder and salt. Stir in butter and enough milk to form a ball. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough into a 12-in. circle. Using an inverted 10-oz. baking dish as a guide, score four circles. Cut out circles. Cut a small circle in the center of each pastry (discard or reroll cutouts and use as decoration).
Coat four 10-oz. baking dishes with cooking spray. Fill with chili; top each with a dough circle. Tuck in edges of dough to seal. Bake at 375° for 13-17 minutes or until edges of crust are lightly browned. Yield: 4 servings.

"This is very good. I cheated though and used low-fat Bisquick as a topping as well as adding mushrooms. I needed to continue to add water at intervals because the vegetables didn't cook quick enough with draining the tomatoes."
