This chili cornbread casserole is the greatest combination to come together since Louis and Vuitton. This easy recipe combines two of my favorite dinner foods into one delicious casserole.
If you love the comforting taste of chili and cornbread, then you’ll definitely want to add this Chili Cornbread Casserole to your menu for the week! Not only does it taste delicious, it is also super easy to prepare! We’ve been making a more “homemade” version of this casserole for years- it involves making your own chili, which is super tasty, but definitely takes more time. (We will include a link to the homemade chili at the end of this post if you want to try that route.) But for the rest of us where time is of the essence, here is a recipe you are sure to love!
