Ingredients

  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 teaspoon canola oil
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) Mexican diced tomatoes
  • 1 can (15 ounces) pinto beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese
  • 1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chilies
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 3/4 teaspoon chili powder
  • TOPPING:
  • 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • 2 teaspoons butter, melted

Directions

  • In a small nonstick skillet coated with nonstick cooking spray, cook onion and garlic in oil until tender. Transfer to a large bowl. Drain tomatoes, reserving 2 tablespoons juice; add tomatoes and juice to onion mixture.
  • Stir in the beans, cheese, chilies, jalapeno, cumin and chili powder. Transfer to an 8-in. square baking dish coated with nonstick cooking spray.
  • For topping, in a small bowl, combine the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Whisk together the egg, yogurt and butter; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Spoon over filling; gently spread to cover top.
  • Bake, uncovered, at 375° for 20-25 minutes or until filling is bubbly and a toothpick inserted into topping comes out clean. Yield: 6 servings. Editor's Note: When cutting or seeding hot peppers, use rubber or plastic gloves to protect your hands. Avoid touching your face.

Notes

This is a good vegetarian Tex Mex recipe, the beans make it really filling. The desciption on the recipe was that it had a "moist" cornbread topping...mine came out somewhat dry, so next time I will increase the yogurt/and or butter. From Light and Tasty
