This was a very tasty meal - I will plan on making this again in the future - thank you for posting.
Loved it! I did add a 1/2 a small onion diced and about a clove of chopped garlic to the beef. I also used two 8.5 oz packages of cornbread and spread it over top of the chili in a 9x11 pan. Put the cheese on the chili first, then the cornbread mixture. It was delicious! My kids (8 & 3) loved it. Had it leftover for lunch today and it was just as good! Will freeze single size portions of what is left for future lunch or dinner. Thank you!
I cooked this today for the first time and it is now a new family favorite. Wow wow wow delicious. I did throw in half an onion and a tomato because it needed to be eaten and seeing as my dh is a vegetarian I used veggie crumbles instead of ground beef. Everyone loved it, it was pretty simple to cook and baked quickly. I'd give it more stars if I could!
