  • AB, love your videos! My GF is a vegetarian, so you know that basically makes me a vegetarian… any substitutes for this dish or other dishes that can be vegetarian? Thanks!

  • I’m a Texan girl, and we call this tamale pie! I know, it’s neither a tamale or a pie, but there it is, lol! I usually have this with a jalapeño cornbread topper and sweet corn baked in as well. I add a salad to try to stave off the “itis” and make it a bit healthier, but I’m sure the sweet tea makes it futile, lol! Loving all your recipes and videos! ♡

  • AB! We all appreciate your using ingredients that simplify a meal, but doesn’t sacrifice flavor. People! Don’t hit the drive thru on the way home. Give this a try. You’ll be happier and healthier that you did. Thanks AB

  • Thank you for the video. I have leftover brisket chili and a bag of Honey sweet cornbread mix. It’s about to go down. And oh yeah I got my pillow ready lol.. Thanks again

  • New Subscriber in da house!! Wow! Looks simple and delicious!! Watching at at 3:30 a.m. Can’t wait to try making it! What size is your cast iron pan?? it’s an awesome size!! Thanks again! Blessings to u & urs!

  • @donidon21 I will send you a recipe. For this dish, just don’t bake it, but top the chili with it and it should work just the same.

  • Um can yall do a vid making some REAL cornbread. That mix shit has way to much sugar and not enough moisture. Im sure yall got some southerners that moved there that can teach yall

  • This looks so delicious:)
    Could you maybe make a vegan Thanksgiving meal, that is not too complicated? That would be so awesome <3

  • Looks good and I’m going to try it. My son found your videos and talent me this. Lol I was tickled because he thought he was showing me something new. I told him I’ve been following you for over a year and that I learned how to do my peach cobbler from your video ❤

  • And then, in the dark of night, she visited the refrigerator, grabbed a spoon and the massive dish with the leftover chili in and returned to bed. The next morning she did the “walk of shame” to return the empty dish to the kitchen.

  • I add it for an additional depth of flavor. If you have ever had mole sauce, it has chocolate added to it, also. It just adds a different, delicious flavor to the chili.

  • Simple recipe that I was able to handle except I browned some ground beef first and added it to the mix. Your style is my favorite, quick and simple. thank you.

  • Yes add 1 Tablespoon of chili powder. I forgot about it and added an annotation and also listed it in the ingredients. I did in fact add it, but it wasn’t shown on camera. Sorry for the confusion.

  • I love the plate u used! It matches your checkered blouse. I definately want to try out the recipe as well… too bad baking powder costs like an arm and a leg here.

  • I love you and all your recipes. Thank you so much for sharing your deliciousness and allowing us to bring it into our home as well.

  • Ooh yessss hontey!!!! I lovd that you used you own recipe for the seasoning. I see so many using packets ( if thats what you do) and thats ok, i just think when you take the time to step away from the packet people appreciate you more for taking the time to show them what you like. YAAAAS!!!!

  • I guess Tasty knew that “Cheesy cornbread topped chili” was going to get more views than “cheesy jiffy on top of taco vegetable stew”. It sure fooled me.

  • Remove the celery, peppers (I just hate them), chick peas, and taco seasoning, add some shredded carrots if you want a bit more texture, use salt, black and red pepper, chili powder, and other spices to taste (taco seasoning has too much cumin for chili), and browned beef or pork (or any meat really, these just hold the flavor the best), corn is optional, red beans are the best (I think some are labeled chili beans) black beans are OK but not as good unless it’s a preference, pinto beans work for everything if it’s all you have. Plenty of tomato makes a good sauce, two-three tomatoes per pound of meat, cans are also perfect. Plain tomato sauce adds thickness, but so does a cornstarch slurry. Let it all cook together and take up the flavor, crock pot makes it super easy. If it’s a pan like this, just let it simmer a while and keep it stirred. Then add the cornbread and finish.

  • Your an excellent cook! I’ve tried 3 of your recipes and they were great �� I plan on purchasing that creole kick from because you use it often so it must be good. Cooking all these you tube meals makes a family happy since we are all stuck in the house over this pandemic. Thanks

  • Like lipstick on a pig, this is an abomination
    Sometimes I think Buzzfeed would take take bean paste and tofu, glop it together with a ton of salt and make a patty, bake it, then stuff it in a dinner roll and label it a hamburger. This is not chili in any reality. Warmed over spicy tomato salad…yeah that’s what I call this nonsense.

  • I wonder what they do with all the food that Tasty makes. Do they just hand everything out to BuzzFeed employees? If they do, I want to work there.

  • VEGAN MOTIVATION: Went vegan at 13, not rich, non vegan family, and still vegan 3 years later. If I can do it, so can you!

    Vegan Youtuber btw

  • That was some weird ass chili. Why so many vegetables? Where’s the tomato sauce? Where’s the meat? (Yes, I understand that there can be vegetarian chili, before I get comments about it.)

  • There’s something I don’t like about this guy’s face. I kind of want to punch it. Why do people feel like they have to put on a character all the time?

  • Thank you, so much! This is one of my family’s favorites. It is great on a cold day. I appreciate you watching. Have a great weekend.

  • My family and I started getting together each Sunday for dinner and this would be so great to bring! The cornbread topping looks so satisfying!

  • Came here to see your recipe for cornbread and was pretty disappointed. I mean what’s the point of having only half the meal be fresh and add boxed stuff on top of it, or vice versa like the cheesecake brownie. It’s not like brownies or cornbread is difficult to make anyway so why not spend 10-20 more minutes doing the real thing?

  • I made this today and I have non vegan roommates that were asking if I made extra and claiming birthday status to get a bowl lol! Great recipe Liv, thanks a bunch. This is a regular in the fall/winter recipe rotation!��

  • Watched this video last night and then immediately made the recipe and it was amazing!!!! My whole house loved it and I think I made it for like $3 This was awesome!!!

  • Thanks for giving me the link. As I was watching, my husband came in and said, “That looks good!” I always make cornbread when I make my chili, but never thought to put it on top of the chili and bake it together. Going to have to try it. Thanks!

  • Hey,I’m a new subscriber, my grandma taught me this recipe when I was a youngin.. almost Exact to yours.. this is my very 1st time watching you, I watched the whole video ��������

  • Just tried itOh my gosh, the cornbread on the top is so good! My husband loved it! So yummy and easy to put together! �� Thanks for a new fall meal!

  • Hi Liv!! I love your videos the energy you bring. I’m hoping that you and everyone else can support my channel. I plan on getting 100subs for now.

  • yum i could smell it all the way over here hehehe. i have a question can corn bread be made from scratch cause where i live we dont have cornbread. i live in malta (europe) we dont have cornbread in any of our dishes. if its not too much trouble would u post a recipe of how to make cornbread. thank u for sharing ur recipes with us.

  • You’re welcome! I am so glad that you and your family enjoy it. Thank you for trying it and letting me know. Have a great Sunday.

  • Thank you so much Lynn!! This chili has become a family favorite!! The kids love the cornbread over this wonderful chili!! You were right!!! The chocolate adds richness without the chocolate flavor!! The recipe is amazing! Thank you so much for sharing!!

  • We just brought our McCormick chilli pack. I’m about to make this with my mom…will update on how it taste…(low-key I’m too excited to try this��)
    Update: IT WAS GOOD! �� I will be making it again

  • Thank you! I hope you enjoy it. The chocolate just adds another depth of flavor to the chili you don’t really taste the chocolate it just blends in with the other flavors. Can’t wait to see how you like it.

  • Omg mine came out so good thank you so much! I added three kinds of beans to mine! All my none vegan family was blown away by how good it taste! You’re amazing

  • Liv I have been watching you for quite a while now 3 yrs. now & I love this recipe how easy it is to bake I plan to make this soon I’m @ my dog trainer compound & have watched you as I retire for the evening after training he has completed his training for service work: mobility, PTSD, Anxiety look up Tohida in Santafe on you tube gotta go bless your channel I love it I’m on Instagram @ ayanvli420 if you want to come by

  • Yes! This is what I was looking for! I plan to make it tomorrow for Super Bowl Sunday for my husband. I hate football, but he loves it, especially the Super Bowl, so I try to make it a special day for him. Thanks for sharing this recipe, and for doing your video with no silly frills or gimmicks. A true gentleman!

  • best to use real chocolate 80% dark not crappy hershey’s, which isn’t actual chocolate by milk solids and a little bit of cocoa powder added

  • It is from Pampered Chef. It is called the Mix ‘n Masher. You could probably google Pampered Chef and find out if it is available in Australia.

  • @kareemtiheed That would be a great idea. The only thing would be if your crockpot isn’t safe to put in the oven, you may need to pour the chili back in your original pot before adding the cornbread and cheese to bake in the oven. You would need to brown the ground beef, onion and garlic on the stove before pouring that part in the crockpot and then you could add the other ingredients and cook everything all day. Hope this answers your question.

  • Just got done cooking it and it was so good. I made a deep square pot of it and they ate it ALL… I had already cooked a little extra so next time I guess I have to make even more…

  • All i can say from the second I saw u in TV, I loved u. I love how u speak. The way u chose your words. The way u personify food. Makes u a great artistic and attractive woman. I love your spirit and food

  • I may have just entered heaven. I like nothing more than cornbread with my chili and now I can have them together in one pan??? Shut the front door!

  • This chili and cornbread looks delicious, Lynn. I will definitely try it! I loved the look of the dish you served at the end with the toppings!

  • I just noticed how long it’s been since i actually clicked on a video of yours and i haven’t made a recipe of yours in a long time. Hmmm

  • Love Nigella but i hate how she showers almost everything with cilantro. Guacamole is understandable but it seems like one out of three of her recipes have coriander/cilantro.
