If you’re going to make chili, then you’re going to have to make some cornbread too. They go together. It’s hard for me to have one without the other. Cornbread is very quick and simple to make so please forget any mixes or store-bought versions. Just take that yellow cornmeal out of your perfect pantry and whip some up while your chili is simmering. You and your guests will be so happy to have some to dip into their hot bowl of hearty chili.
In addition to chili and cornbread, we have a few recipes here on 3mbb that would be great for a Super Bowl party. So take a look and start cooking! (And enjoy the game if you’re into that sort of thing.)
Super Bowl-Friendly Recipes:
- 2 cups yellow cornmeal
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup fine baking sugar
- 2 tablespoons baking powder
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 2 cups milk
- 1/2 cup butter or margarine (1 stick), melted
- 2 large eggs, beaten
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Using room temperature butter, grease a 9 by 13 inch baking pan. In a large bowl combine cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. In a separate smaller bowl, combine milk, butter and eggs. Add milk mixture to flour mixture and whisk until smooth and combined. Using a spatula, pour batter into prepared pan. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into center of bread comes out clean.
