So simple yet so satisfying.

1-1/2 lbs. ground beef
3/4 c. onion, chopped
15-oz. can corn, divided
16-oz. can stewed tomatoes
16-oz. can tomato sauce
1 t. hot pepper sauce
2 T. chili powder
1 t. garlic, minced
1-1/3 c. biscuit baking mix
2/3 c. cornmeal
2/3 c. milk
3 T. fresh cilantro, chopped

Brown ground beef and onion in a Dutch oven over medium heat; drain. Set
aside 1/2 cup corn; stir remaining corn with liquid, tomatoes, sauces,
chili powder and garlic into beef mixture. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat;
cover and simmer for 15 minutes. Mix baking mix and cornmeal in a medium
bowl; stir in milk, cilantro and reserved corn just until moistened.
Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls onto simmering chili. Cook over low
