Chili Cornbowlio
Prep time

Total time
Serves: 6
  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • ⅔ cups milk
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1½ - 2 cups prepared chili
  • cheese, sour cream or your favorite chili toppings
  1. Preheat oven to 400º F.
  2. Add ½ tablespoon of butter to the cup of each Bake-a-bowl lower pan and place in oven while you mix the ingredients. The pan only needs to heat for about 3 - 4 minutes so that the butter will melt. Be sure to be aware of the pan and don't let your butter burn!
  3. Whisk together cornmeal, egg, oil, sugar, and milk in a small bowl until combined.
  4. Carefully remove the pan from the oven and pour the cornbread batter into each cup of melted butter - just filling half of the cup (to the marking on the pan).
  5. Fit the upper pan into the lower pan slots and place back in the oven.
  6. Bake at 400º F for 18 - 20 minutes or until golden brown.
  7. Fill each cornbread bowl with chili and add the toppings of your choice.
You can easily use a 6 cup muffin pan instead of the Bake-a-Bowl pan if desired.
