Mexican Chili Cornbread Casserole

Photo: KLMcNelis

My husband and I have been enjoying this recipe for years. If you want to freeze it, cool the Mexican chili and freeze it in an 8x8 pan. When you're ready to enjoy, remove from freezer, add prepared corn muffin mix, and bake until chili is bubbly and corn topping is golden brown.
