I have shared several stories of how my mom was not the best cook growing up. In fact, she still isn’t that great at it. My mom preferred to bake more than cook. However, there were a few dishes that my mom would make that I actually look forward to. Let’s see there were her chicken and dumplings, turkey burgers, fried potatoes and onions, brownies, and the occasional chocolate chip cookies with burnt edges. Aww, the good old days. If you notice something about the meals I just mentioned that was made by my mother, they are all fairly inexpensive. There is a reason for that. The reason is that we didn’t have an expensive lifestyle…AT ALL. I am not ashamed to tell you guys I grew up from a household that received food stamps, WIC, and lived in Section 8 Housing. I am a first-generation college graduate of my family so yea, I didn’t grow up with a silver spoon in my mouth. More like a plastic spoon. HA! HA! HA! I made a funny! No? Okay, moving on.
This Chili Cornbread Casserole makes a lot of food. I used a 9X13 deep casserole dish but I had some chili left over, which was fine with me, but I wanted to let you know that you can use a bigger dish or just know that you are going to have a bowl or two of leftover chili to enjoy. You can always put the chili on a baked potato, some french fries, or whatever you like to put chili on. This Chili Cornbread Casserole is made using Jiffy Cornbread mix, but you can use whatever you want This is not a sponsored post for Jiffy Cornbread mix by any means. I just grew up on Jiffy and I love Jiffy, so it only makes sense to use Jiffy Cornbread mix in this Chili Cornbread Casserole. Nevertheless, this is a great meal for a family that is sure to hug your bellies and is fairly inexpensive to make. I hope you enjoy this casserole recipe.Print
