Chili and cornbread always seem to go good together. Put them both in the same dish and you create an amazing one dish meal.

I was a little worried about how well the cornbread would bake with the chili added to it, but to my surprise it was almost perfect. The recipe calls for an 8 x 12 – 2 quart dish which I did not have on hand – so I substituted an 8 x 8 an as a result the chili mix pretty much covered the cornbread; but the end result was still very good.

If you’re looking for a good one dish meal give this one a try it’s really good.
