|Jalapeno Cornbread Pancakes with Chili|
I made chili the other night and served it our favorite way - over spaghetti. If you haven't tried chili spaghetti, I recommend it! We top ours with shredded cheddar, onions, jalapeno peppers, and sour cream. It's really delicious.
However, I recently found
a new way to serve chili and thought it would be nice to change things up...especially since it involved making my jalapeno cornbread, too!
The idea I found was to make chili toppers using a cornbread recipe. These chili toppers were pictured sitting atop the bowl of chili. Brilliant? Sure...but I decided to take it a step further. I used my Jalapeno cornbread batter to make full sized pancakes! We had chili pancakes for dinner tonight! I set out the same toppings we usually have with the chili spaghetti and it was awesome! It was a fun way to serve the chili and it was nice to get a bite of jalapeno pancake in each bite too. My hubby and brother were actually licking their plates...that's right chili on a plate...how weird is that?

Both recipes, my Very, Very Good Chili and the Jalapeno Cornbread have been posted previously, so I won't share the recipes on this post again. To make the pancakes, I prepared the cornbread according to recipe, but instead of baking, I used our electric griddle and fried them. Cornbread pancakes cook the same way regular pancakes do, so watch for the bubbles then flip them.
To serve, I layered a pancake and then a spoon of chili and then another pancake and then more chili and, finally, topped it with my favorite toppings. It was fun to change up the presentation of our traditional chili dinner! Have you ever changed the presentation of a family favorite? If so, what? How was it received?

** I didn't post a menu this week because we didn't get to fix last weeks menu. We were on the road much of last week due to the "homegoing" of my precious aunt. I thank God that we live with a hope of a reunion one day!
