My Easter Hormel Chili Recipe

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Hormel Foods. All opinions are 100% mine.

Happy Easter Everyone!

Speaking of Easter, I am so looking forward to it not because of the colorful eggs but the meal that we traditionally share on Easter Sunday. I am so looking forward to my Mother-in-law’s different hormel dishes that she made out of those stock she keeps neatly in her cupboard which she replenish every time she used up a can or two. She was so proud of her different hearty Hormel Chili meal recipes such as Brandon’s favorite Chili Cheese Dip, Hearther’s Chili-mac, and my hubby’s Shepherd’s Pie and Chili.

This year, I volunteered to prepare my own hormel dish for Easter Sunday meal – Coney Island Casserole. I found this easy recipe online from Hormel Foods website and I want to share it with you. You will need the following…

• 1 (17.3-ounce) package refrigerated large corn biscuit dough
• 1 (15-ounce) can Hormel Chili No Beans
• 1 ( ) cup shredded Cheddar cheese
• 1/2 cup chopped onion
• 1/2 package Wranglers Smoked Franks, cut into 1/2-inch pieces

Direction for cooking:
Heat oven to 375ºF. Lightly grease 13x9-inch baking dish.
1. Lightly press biscuit dough into bottom and slightly up sides of baking dish. Bake 10 minutes.
2. Meanwhile, in bowl, combine chili, franks, cheese and onion; mix well.
3. Spread chili mixture in baking dish. Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until biscuits are golden brown and filling is hot.
4. Cut casserole into squares; serve immediately. Top with additional shredded cheese, onion, relish, ketchup and mustard, if desired.

Very easy, right? So if you are still thinking of a new dish to prepare for Easter Sunday family meal… visit and check out all the new recipe suggestions that I know your family will like. As for me, preparing meal is always easy because of Hormel Chili and yes, Dainty Moore Products. And speaking of Dainty Moore… here is a trivia that I would like to share too… do you know that… "in the 30s, characters Jiggs and Maggie from “Bringing Up Father” were used in Dinty Moore® advertisements. Later, a lumber jack character was introduced, proclaiming “First name’s Dinty, last name’s Moore,” who placed his signature thumbprint on every can. Utilizing celebrities proved to be a popular route in promoting Hormel® chili. Ray Milland, star of “Copper Canyon,” appeared in print ads. In the 80s, pro football player Fran Tarkenton was tapped to promote Hormel® chili."

Oh well, isn’t it obvious that I love Hormel Chili and Dinty Moore products so much? I even tweeted about these... [wink*]
