Chili and Cornbread in a Dutch Oven

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Method: Campfire

Oven Temp: 350

Ingredients and Directions


  • Chili
  • 2-3 packets cornbread mix (depending on oven size)
  • 12 quart cast-iron Dutch oven


Mix your favorite chili ingredients in a Dutch oven. Cover and bake chili either in the oven or over the campfire for 2 to 2-1/2 hours. (Make sure if cooking over a campfire that you stir often.) Make 2 or 3 packets of cornbread mix according to directions. After chili has cooked, pour cornbread mix over the chili and cover. Bake for another 30 minutes. If using an oven, remove lid during last 10 minutes of baking. Remove from oven and slice as you would a pie. Spoon chili and cornbread into a bowl and enjoy. I made this for 10 people while camping and had no leftovers. Everyone loved it.
