Chili Cornbread Casserole Recipe Review

Wednesday, February 13, 2013

I love chili and decided to make this chili cornbread casserole for dinner last night for this week's entry in the "What's Cookin', Good Lookin'?" challenge on my maintenance team:

I followed the recipe reasonably closely but added a jalapeņo and bit more salt in the cornbread mixture (I have low blood pressure and 1/4 teaspoon seemed stingy), threw in a second pepper and used my own chili seasoning blend. The result was quite tasty and I love having all of these flavors together. I was a bit skeptical about using whole wheat flour in the cornbread but it was surprisingly unstodgy. I had some leftovers for lunch today and it reheated very nicely.

Coming in at just under 500 calories a serving, it definitely wasn't bad for a chili meal with beef, cornbread and cheese.

    Yum. Chili is one of my all-time favorite dishes and this will be made this week.

    That sounds SO delicious! I love the idea of baking the cornbread with cilantro (& jalapeņo too!). I think this may have to go into my rotation soon!

    That looks great and substantially filling. I'm going to have to try it. Thanks for the review.

    I love cornbread so I like to hear that adding whole wheat to it didn't make it... like you said "stodgy".

  Sounds great and it's interesting to know that the wheat flour in the cornbread worked well!

    The whole wheat cornbread sounds like a healthy alternative to other types of casserole toppings. I'm glad the recipe was a success and thank you for the review!
