I believe that keeping the chili simple with no beans and no peppers lets that flavor really shine. There’s nothing like cornbread to go with your chili so this recipe gives you both, chili and cornbread in one pot. The cornbread dumplings soak up some of the liquid in the chili making it extra flavorful and thickening the chili below into a thick stew. It’s a hearty meal all in one pot, no matter what sort of pot you use – a Dutch oven, pressure cooker (or Instant Pot®) or slow cooker. (scroll down to see a video of each method)
