Wholesome Cornbread Recipe

Chili Cheese Cornbread

It’s a good time for a pot of chili. We’re all cooped up in the house, so I think we’re needing some comfort food right about now, don’t you think? There are several recipes on the site for chili, including vegetarian pumpkin chili, hurricane chili, and white chicken chili, but my favorite part about chili is the side of cornbread to accompany it. Today I offer you a delicious Chili Cheese Cornbread recipe that pairs wonderfully with any chili you’d like!

What makes this cornbread unique is the addition of cheese and chilies, yet it’s still sweet with the addition of organic honey from Wholesome.

What’s your favorite comfort food meal?
