I have made chili from maybe half a dozen recipes over the years, but I had never made cornbread before. These recipes made a heap ton of chili and cornbread. All five of us ate our fill and then the family of five next door ate their fill and there was still some left over!

It’s a liiiiiiiittle spicy, but not too spicy for the kids. A couple of the grown ups said it wasn’t spicy enough, but it’s always easier to add than to take away.

The cornbread is moist and perfect for dipping. It doesn’t fall apart in the chili but it does absorb just enough of the sauce.
