Homemade Chili and Mexicorn Corn Bread

slowcooker chili mexi cornbread

Brrrr…this time of year is the perfect weather for making this insanely satisfying chili and cornbread-and it’s a healthy recipe to boot! Full of protein, this chili fills you up.  I like to start a batch first thing in the morning on the weekend and keep it warming through dinner so we can grab a bowl anytime we want!

I also love serving it with this fun take on regular cornbread-by adding a can of mexicorn you sneak in a little spice and texture to run of the mill boxed mix.  I hope you all enjoy these recipes as much as our family does!
