Chili Casserole

Chili Casserole
My sister actually gave me the idea for this recipe.  My daughter loves chili and she loves corn bread so I knew this would be a hit in our house.  I probably make this a couple times a month it is so good and I can get my daughter to eat it without a fight so that is a huge plus.
This is also a recipe where you can add lots of stuff to it and the kids never know.  The basic recipe is below, but in the past I have added the following to this tomato’s, carrots, and green chilies.   I have also tried different puree’s to add to it (I got the idea of adding pureed vegetable from Jessica Seinfeld cook book Deceptively Delicious, she adds puree’s to everything) this recipe has such a strong flavor it can handle almost anything being added to it, so sneak in those veggies!

Make sure to check out some of our food board on Pintrest to get some more ideas on things the kids will love to eat.

1 package chili mix
1 package corn bread mix


Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Brown your ground beef

Add beans, corn, tomato sauce, and chili mix to the beef (if you are adding extra veggies/puree’s add them now). Bring to a boil then simmer 5 min.

Pour beef mixture in to an 8×8 pan.

In a bowl mix your corn bread according to package directions.


Pour cornbread mixture on top of beef mixture in pan.

Back in oven about 25 min or until toothpick inserted in cornbread layer comes out clean.

      I love this perspective. Some days it’s just oh-so-hard, and to think of it like this – that being there at all times provides for the closeness and the bonding is important. Thanks for sharing.Missy | Literal Mom recently posted..

    My family would love this. :) I had never thought of sneaking purees into dishes like this – I may just have to try that trick.

    Thanks Corinne, This recipe has been a family favorite in my house for a while, and adding the purees is pretty much the only way to get my daughter to eat certain veggies.

    Thanks for subscribing I just checked out your site and I love it. I also have an 8mo old daughter so it is perfect!
