Chilli Cornbread Bake

This recipe is a yummy comfort food perfect for this time of year. And another bonus is that it is super easy and it is a complete meal and you only use one skillet!! (That is of course, if you use cast iron, if not then you will have to use a baking dish as well).

First, make your favorite chilli. I used ground beef, onion, bell pepper, garlic, Italian seasoning, chilli seasoning, corn, black beans and spaghetti sauce.

If you are using a cast iron skillet, then leave the chilli in pan and shut off heat. Make sure your pan is not too full of chilli. I had to remove about a third of my chill to make room for cornbread topping. Your chilli should fill about half of the skillet. 
If you are not using a cast iron skillet, then now is the time to transfer your chilli to a baking dish.

Next, put on the cheese layer. I use cheddar cheese sauce. I buy it in a large can at Sam's Club. I didn't measure how much I used, I just put a decent layer down! The more, the yummier! 

Now its time for the cornbread layer. You can use your own recipe or use my recipe. (Recipe follows). I drop it in dollops over the top of the cheese so it is easier to spread.

Now spread smooth....

Now bake at 350* for 40-50 minutes. Edges will be slightly brown when its done. Check center for doneness. 

We had this for dinner last night and there were no leftovers!


1 cup flour
1 cup cornmeal
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 egg

Dollop over chilli and spread evenly.
I love easy recipes!!

Have a wonder-fall day!
