An Easy Dinner - Easy Chili Skillet Bake

I discovered this recipe yesterday when sifting through my cookbooks. It was in a little Bisquick pamphlet so I thought I'd give it a try. The recipe calls for two cans of chili with beans. I made some chili instead since I don't keep canned chili in the pantry. It was a pretty easy one-dish meal - we had fresh carrots with it. We even had the left-overs today for lunch. I covered the skillet with foil and stuck it back in the oven to heat it up. It tasted just as good the 2nd time!

Easy Chili Skillet Bake

Chili (I just browned some meat and onion, added a medium size can of tomato sauce, can of ranch style beans, chili powder, half of a chili seasoning mix, garlic powder)
1 cup Bisquick (might need more to get the right consistency)
1/2 cup milk
2 eggs, beaten
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

1. Pour warm/hot chili into a oven proof skillet. (You may need to spray the skillet w/cooking spray)
2. Stir Bisquick mix, milk and egg until blended. (I kept adding milk/mix to get the consistency of biscuits)
3. Spoon batter in ring around outer edge of chili. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup of cheese over the batter.
4. Bake 20 minutes (at 400) or until crust is gold brown. Immediately sprinkle remaining 1/2 cup of cheese over center. Let stand about 5 minutes.
