Here's a recipe my whole family really enjoys. I like it even more because it is an easy one-dish casserole.

Ingredients:

1 medium Onion, chopped
2 15-ounce cans prepared Chili (try turkey chili)
8 ounces frozen Spinach, thawed
1 cup shredded reduced-fat Mexican blend or Cheddar cheese
1 12-ounce box Cornbread mix
4 ounces canned green chilies (optional)

Preparation:

1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Spray with cooking spray an 11 x 7 baking dish.
2. Coat a nonstick skillet with cooking spray and place over medium-high heat. When hot, add onion and saute until tender. Add chili and spinach to skillet and stir well until heated through and combined.
3. Add skillet mixture to the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle cheese over top.
4. In a bowl, combine cornbread mix and 2/3 cup water (or follow cornbread box direction), stirring just until smooth. Mix in can of green chili, if desired. Pour batter over mixture in baking dish.
5. Bake casserole for 30 minutes or until cornbread crust is golden brown.

You can substitute frozen corn for spinach or use both!
