CAN YOU MAKE CORNBREAD CHILI CASSEROLE AHEAD OF TIME?

This recipe does not take too long to make, however, if you are short on time the day you plan on serving it, then I would suggest prepping the chili portion of the recipe ahead of time. Then on the day of, all you need to do is the cornbread mix and bake it. This way, the cornbread is still fresh and not overly soggy or too firm on top (as it tends to do after a few days).

CAN YOU FREEZE CHILI BEEF CORNBREAD CASSEROLE?

I would not recommend freezing this casserole after you have cooked it. The cornbread can only withstand a few massive swings in temperature. I would, however, store leftovers in the refrigerator for a few days.

WHAT TO SERVE WITH CHILI CORNBREAD CASSEROLE?

This is a rather hearty and filling recipe, however if you want to add some greenery to the table, perhaps a side salad. If you are looking for more comfort food recipes, check out these dishes to serve at a tailgate party or potluck:
