Recipe Comments and Reviews


I make this recipe husband loves is even better left over..i use a small can of green chili's instead of tomoatoes with chili's because we like a little more bite


My family had mixed responses: The kids didn't like it (three of them). My sister liked it and me and my dad thought it was lacking something. It is a good meal when you are broke or short on time but the chili part needs some work. It was just so "canned." This whole idea of putting the cornbread in the chili then covering it to bake was a great idea. I think I'll make my own chili next time though.


I made this recipe for the first time for company. It was so good!! I softened an onion in the skillet before I added the beans. Every one loved it!


I'm not a good cook, but even I can make this easy dish. Tastes great and even my little kids like it.


This quick and yummy dinner goes into rotation in our house in the fall and winter.
