Chili Cheese Dog Casserole

This was so tasty. It tasted like a yummy corn dog. My son absolutely loved it.

1 package (8-1/2 ounces) corn bread/muffin mix
1 c. chopped green pepper
1/2 c. chopped onion
1/2 c. chopped celery
1 tbsp olive oil
1 package (1 pound) hot dogs, halved lengthwise and cut into bite-size pieces
1 can (15 ounces) chili with beans
2 tbsp brown sugar
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp chili powder
1 c. (4 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese, divided

Prepare corn bread batter according to package directions. Spread half the batter into a greased 8-in. square baking dish; set aside. In a large skillet, saute the green pepper, onion and celery in oil until crisp-tender. Stir in hot dogs; saute 3-4 minutes longer or until lightly browned. Stir in the chili, brown sugar, garlic powder and chili powder; heat through. Stir in 3/4 cup cheese. Spoon over prepared corn bread. Spread remaining batter onto hot dog mixture. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 28-32 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.
