Cornbread Chili Cobbler

Cornbread Chili Cobbler is a fun twist on a classic cornbread and chili meal! Spices, tomato sauce, beans and ground hamburger are simmered together in a skillet and then topped with dollops of homemade cornbread. Bake it until golden brown and delicious and scoop out perfect spoonfuls of chili and cornbread! You won’t be able to resist this simple, yet delicious meal. 

First, let’s talk about the chili base. It is a very classic chili recipe and doesn’t have anything frilly going on, but it’s good! Sometimes basics are better. I browned some hamburger, added in some spices, and then simmered it with a tomato sauce base and beans. Realistically, you could just call it good to go right there, but we want to be extra and make a cornbread topping. 

Next comes the cornbread. If you’ve never made homemade cornbread before, this is a good recipe to start with! Especially since you are dolloping it on top of a chili base, you don’t have to worry about it drying out. Just like the chili, there isn’t anything fancy here. Just delicious food. I love the way the cornbread gets golden brown on top and creates the perfect “cobbler” look. 

Lastly, you can’t have chili without the fixin’s. My go-to’s are shredded cheese, sour cream and green onions. If you like a little extra heat, sliced jalepeños would do the trick.

Cornbread Chili Cobbler is the perfect dish to serve up to feed a crowd or for a game-day feast. Either way you serve it, it’s pretty darn fun to make and eat!

Scale

Ingredients

For the chili:

  • 1 pound ground hamburger
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 30 oz tomato sauce
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 15 oz light red kidney beans, strained
  • 15 oz black beans, strained

For the cornbread topping:

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 stick (8 tablespoons) butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 large egg

Instructions

For the chili:

  1. Heat the olive oil over medium heat in a large, oven-safe skillet. Add in the onion and sauté for several minutes until translucent. Add in the hamburger and cook until fully browned, breaking it up into pieces along the way, about 10 minutes. Stir in the chili powder, paprika, garlic powder, salt and pepper.
  2. Pour the tomato sauce and water into the ground hamburger mixture and stir until fully combined. Add in the kidney beans and the black beans and stir to combine. Reduce the heat to low and allow to simmer for about 10 minutes.

For the cornbread topping:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, salt and sugar. Whisk in the honey, milk, melted butter and egg until smooth.
  2. Use a large spoon to evenly dollop the cornbread over the top of the prepared chili. Bake for 35 minutes, or until the cornbread is golden brown on top. Serve with desired toppings. Enjoy!

Notes

  • If you don’t have an oven-proof skillet, you can always pour the prepared chili into a large baking dish before topping with the cornbread and baking.
  • I used an 85/15 ground hamburger for this recipe.
