One Pan Chili Cornbread Meal has such an amazing flavor. I love this dish because it is a meal in one.
A good meal to have this time of year because you can put it in the oven on Halloween night, and then have a complete meal. It is a great meal to have just before the kids go out trick or treating; that way tummies are full and the kids do not eat so much candy.
