Slow Cooker White Chili & Fiesta Cornbread with Lindsay Peppers


As part of a sponsored post for Collective Bias®,  I created two #FreshFinds recipes, Slower Cooker White Chili and Fiesta Cornbread, using Lindsay Peppers from Save Mart.

Slow Cooker White Chili and Fiesta Cornbread with Lindsay Peppers from Save Mart

Fall means chili at our house and chili means cornbread. And not just any cornbread, but Fiesta Cornbread!

Fiesta Cornbread Recipe with Lindsay Peppers #FreshFinds from Save Mart

The Fiesta Cornbread has a touch of heat and lots of flavor. It compliments the chili without completely stealing the show.

We live in the country in the Sierra Nevada foothills and while we enjoy the mild fall weather and gorgeous fall colors, we spend much of our weekends preparing for winter. After a day of repairing fences, leveling the pasture, loading the shed with hay, and installing heated water buckets, we need a stick-to-your-ribs kind of meal like chili.

Lindsay Peppers at Save Mart #FreshFinds

Last weekend while my husband and son repaired an 8 foot section of fence that blew over in the high winds, I ran to Save Mart and picked up some Lindsay Peppers to make a batch of white chili. They had a blinkie coupon for $1.00 off a bottle of peppers. Score! I also picked up some cilantro, a lime, and chicken for the chili. And I bought some bell peppers and yogurt to make the cornbread.

I add several types of Lindsay Peppers to my white chili recipe #FreshFinds from Save Mart

When I make chili, I like to add several different types of peppers. This adds a depth of flavor and layers of heat. It also allows people to appreciate all the different flavors in the chili without being overpowered by the heat.

You can create your own mix to match the level of heat that you like. In our family we have 2 people who like mild chili, 2 people who like hot chili,and one person who likes a medium chili. I tend to make a mildish-medium chili and then I put bowls of sliced chilies on the the table. The people who want hot chili can add a few slices of jalapeno pepper directly to their bowl of chili.

Fiesta Cornbread with Lindsay Peppers
I like to make a Fiesta Cornbread to complement the flavor of the chili.

I use red peppers, bell peppers, and Lindsay Golden Greek Peppers in my Fiesta Cornbread #FreshFinds

I use red peppers, bell peppers, and Golden Greek peppers inside the cornbread. This keeps it from being too hot for my children.

Adding Lindsay Peppers to the top of the Fiesta Cornbread #FreshFinds

I top the cornbread with Mexican cheese, Sweet Banana Peppers and Jalapeno Peppers. Those of us who prefer less heat, grab a slice with a banana pepper on top. My husband and oldest son, like more heat, so they grab a a slice of cornbread with a jalapeno pepper on top.

  1. I really like the idea of layers of flavour in a chili. Your White Chili sounds delicious. I love the cornbread too – it looks so lovely with the peppers on top.
