Individual chili casseroles topped with cornbread
This is a one-skillet soup and cornbread supper. Simply throw together a quick chili and top with a homemade cornbread. Bake and enjoy.
Chili is delicious but it's even better when served with cornbread. We took the two classic dishes and turned them into a casserole. We kept things mild but served our little casseroles with mini jars of Tabasco just in case you want to add a little heat to your meal.
