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!
