This cornbread-chili bake is guaranteed to score (even if your team doesn’t). Just like your favorite dessert, you’ll poke several holes into a tray of cornbread, then spread a layer of chili on top. The chili will infuse into the cornbread, ensuring a meal that’s meaty, sweet and super-satisfying.
Let’s be real — no one can resist a good cheese fry. Sunny tops hers with an easy homemade chili, pickled jalapenos and chopped scallions for a shareable dish that hits all the right notes.

Chili meets pizza in Sunny’s festive mashup. She swaps pizza crust for French bread and chili for marinara, then tops the whole thing with your favorite chili fixings (like hot sauce, cilantro and scallions). Win or lose, everyone will be happy when chili pizza is on the table.
