Chili- Cheese Corn Bread


Last week I shared one of my Mother-in -law’s tried and true recipes and here is another one. She kindly has provided me with a month’s worth of recipes, which is simply wonderful because it saves me a lot of research and work, and I confidently know that the recipes are good. This bread dunks deliciously into big bowls of chili, but can be served with any meal.
