  • Preheat a 12-inch oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat, rotating occasionally, until hot, 5 to 8 minutes. Add ground beef and onion; cook and stir until meat is browned and onion is soft, 5 to 7 minutes. Drain grease.

  • Reduce heat to medium and add kidney beans, black beans, tomato sauce, water, chili powder, brown sugar, cumin, cocoa powder, salt, oregano, garlic powder, onion powder, cayenne pepper, black pepper, and paprika. Bring to a simmer and cook until heated through, about 5 minutes.

  • While the chili is heating, whisk flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, and salt for together in a small bowl. Mix in milk, egg, butter, and vanilla extract. Dollop cornbread mixture over top of chili.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until cornbread is crisp and golden brown, about 20 minutes.

I made the recipe exactly how it was written! Great flavor and my boys ate it all up! The ingredients were all something I keep in my house so didn’t have to buy extra for. Definitely will make again! Read More

A really great recipe. Came out delicious and perfectly balanced as written. The cornbread is a great offset to the chili. I would call it mild to medium spiciness. Read More

Super good! Made it with ground turkey but everything else in recipe followed exactly! Corn bread adds a very cool addition to the chili. It is definitely a keeper! Looks great when it comes out of the oven....real conversation piece! Read More
