Corny-Chili Pie- Corny as in popcorn!

This recipe not surprisingly come from a popcorn cookbook; Popcorn Potpourri by Larry Kusche.
The book has quite a few tasty sounding recipes for sweet and savory popcorn treats. But then it ventures to where popcorn should not go. Yet another case of trying to use and ingredient where it doesn't belong. There are recipes using ground crushed popcorn in things that would traditionally use bread crumbs. OK maybe you could get away with that but why bother. Then things go truly wrong with Corny-Chili Pie.

Corny Chili Pie
1 (10 oz.) can chili-hot-dog sauce
1 qt. popped popcorn
1 (10 oz.) pkg. corn-bread mix
1 qt. popped popcorn
1 egg
1/2 cup milk
1 (8 oz.) can whole kernel corn, drained; reserve 1 tablespoon liquid
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Butter a 9x13 in baking pan. Mix chili-hot-dog-sauce and 1 quart of popcorn. Spread evenly in buttered baking pan. In a mixing bowl, add and mix thoroughly the corn bread mix, remaining 1 quart of popcorn, egg, milk corn and tablespoon of corn liquid. Place in a layer over chili-popcorn mixture. Bake for 20 minutes or until a cake tester can be clean from the center. Makes 6 servings.

This sounds truly wretched to me. Just because it makes 6 servings does not mean you could find six people willing to try this recipe!
