You will love this, it's really a tasty meal. I have made this many times in the fall and winter season, but it is still good on cool rainy days too, and is very easy to put together. Make certain that you have a large oven-proof skillet for this recipe, as the whole thing is baked in the skillet. Try not to overbake the cornbread topping.

The chili in this was very good, but I was a little disappointed with the cornbread topping. There wasn't enough to cover the top of the chili (I used a 12-inch skillet) and it was a little bland for our tastes. This recipe makes a lot - we actually got 6 servings out of it. I would make this again but would experiment with the cornbread topping. Thanks for posting this Kit! Made for Bargain Basement Tag.
