The weather here is absolutely freezing right now! In fact, it’s actually way below freezing. We have been hiding under blankets and making so many of our favorite winter comfort foods.

How To Make A Chili Pot Pie

The first thing to do when making this dish is cook the ground beef thoroughly. Drain it and add the beans, chili seasoning and tomato sauce. Easy so far, right?

To make the cornbread, mix the dry ingredients all together in one bowl, and the wet ingredients in a second bowl. Then, add the wet to the dry.

Get four ramekin dishes and spoon into each, one cup of chili and then half a cup of cornbread batter.

Bake for about 25 minutes and if you want, you can top with cheese and sour cream.

This recipe is for four people which is great for most families. If you need to make more, just double up the recipe.

What To Eat With Chili Pot Pie

These are truly perfect on their own since you’re getting both the chili and the cornbread in one dish. However, I really like to serve it with corn on the cob! For a warm after dinner dessert try Caramel Apple Bread Pudding or Hot Chocolate Monkey Bread.

Stay warm!

    I made this tonight for dinner.  It was delicious.  I don’t have individual ramikins, so I used a small casserole dish and a jiffy corn muffin mix for the.topping.  Itmis definitely.going into my fall/winter meal rotation!

    This recipe sounds great! But since this is a 1 person household, can the extras being frozen to be eaten later?

      I think if you just froze the chili it would be ok. Just thaw and add the cornbread when ready to bake.

    2. Heather Bertrand

      I use epicure cornbread and chillie and both freeze separately so I’d imagine they’d be fine together since you can freeze chicken pot pies made with cornbread.

    3. Tammy Grosnickle

      Cornbread and chili separately freeze well, so I don’t see why it can’t be frozen together.

    I doubled the recipe, used larger ramekin bowls and used Fleischman’s cornbread box mix (I used the baking instructions for the cornbread) It was delicious!!I will definitely make this recipe again!!
