Great ,but- here is an easy way

I use canned chili and a instant mix corn bread. Prepare in 10 minutes.. May not be as good as recipe, But for a fast meal, you can not beat it.

High sodium, but sounds good.

I want to try this, but the sodium is very high. The only thing I see that would cause that is the canned beans, but I thought rinsing them would wash away most of the salt they were packed in. I would consider making it with beans that I made myself from dry beans with lower salt content.

Good ingredients and reads like I'd really like it. Simple to make.
Chili Cornbread no go

Sorry but this one didn't make it. There are better chili recipes. The cornbread can be "tinkered" with and make to taste better. Can't recommend this one.

Can be improved
Yummy chili-cornbread casserole

I loved this recipe. I added a jalapeno and a LOT more cumin, as well as cilantro and red pepper flakes. I did spice it up quite a bit as we like a lot of spice. My kids, who hate cornbread, also loved this recipe. It doesn't need more liquid because it's a casserole. Will be having leftovers today and would definitely make it again.

Really easy, hearty, and very tasty
Complete Failure

This was easy to make, but the chili was just so so and the corn bread topping was mealy and tasteless. My kids, who like chili and are usually adventerous eaters, hated it. There are just much better recipes out there for chili!
