Chili Cornbread Casserole

For those of you who say you can’t cook, this is the meal for you. There is no cooking required, all you need to do is about five minutes of prep work. It’s a joke how easy this is to make and no one will have any idea that you didn’t cook! If you’re really a challenged cook, hopefully you own an oven and know how to use it :)

My Aunt gave me this idea and it’s such a great comforting meal for a weeknight. The best part of all, it’s SOOOO good and really not that bad for you.

Besides, who doesn’t love chili, cheese, and cornbread?!

Chili Cornbread Casserole


  • 2 16oz cans of chili (I used Trader Joe’s Organic Vegetarian Chili)
  • 1 cup reduced fat shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 box cornbread mix


Prepare cornbread mix according to directions on the box, set batter aside. Pour chili in a 9×13 casserole dish sprayed with non stick cooking spray. Top with cheese. Pour cornbread batter over the chili and cheese, spread evenly with a spatula.

Bake according to directions on the cornbread box. Serve warm.

If you have any leftovers, stick it in the freezer and eat at a later date.  Leftovers are the best!


  1. Newman, I made this last night for me and my vegetarian roommate and we both loved it! Going to definitely try more of your veggie recipes for weeknight dinners :)
