1 – 4oz. Can of chopped Chilies (your choice of mild or medium)
1 1/2 Cups of water
3 cups – Your favorite corn meal mix (Jiffy, Marie Callender, etc.)
1/2 tsp – Sugar ( or half sugar, half cinnamon)
1oz. – Honey
1/8 Stick of butter or margarine.
This makes about 4 or 5 servings and will take about 2 to 3 hours of good quality solar cooking sunshine.
Begin by whisking together the water and corn meal mix in a large bowl. Try to get it as smooth (lumpless) as possible.Next, dump in the strained can of chilies and mix well.
Add the honey slowly by going across the diameter of the bowl several times.Pour in the melted butter or margarine into the mix.Mix everything thoroughly and pour it into your thin-walled black metal cooking pot, uncovered.

Use a spoon back to smooth off the top of the batter and then sprinkle the sugar (or cinnamon & sugar) over the top.

Set the pot into the solar cooker, aim the oven and, if you wish, check on the bread after an hour or so. Test with a toothpick or knife. It should be ready in 2 1/2 to 3 hours.
Remove pot from the solar oven and let it cool for 20 minutes. Enjoy with butter and your best cup of coffee. Yum!
What’s really great about this recipe, is not just its great taste, but that it makes a handy, nutritious meal from mostly dry ingredients. That’s a big help in a survival/emergency condition.
My mother especially enjoys this recipe. She’s from the Southwest..uh..southwest PA!
