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.

This Chili Cornbread meal is packed with ground beef, beans, and tomatoes, topped off with a sweet corn bread.
