Country Cornbread Muffins and Texas Chili

Thank you, Kelli and Mrs. H, for two wonderful recipes!!!!

Country Cornbread Muffins
12 servings

1 cup flour
1 cup cornmeal
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg
1 cup sour cream
1/4 cup canola oil
1/4 cup milk

Combine the flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking soda and salt. Whisk together the egg, sour cream, oil and milk. Stir into the dry ingredients just until combined. Spoon into greased muffin tin. Bake at 375° for 20-25 minutes or until top is lightly browned and a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Serve warm with butter and enjoy!

Texas Chili
6 servings

1 pound ground beef
1 medium onion, chopped
1 can (15 ounces) crushed tomatoes
1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
1 can (15 ounces) mild chili beans
1 can (15 ounces) kidney beans, rinsed and drained
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 teaspoon cumin
3/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
grated sharp cheddar cheese
sour cream

In a large saucepan, cook the beef and onion over medium heat; drain. Stir in tomatoes, tomato sauce, and beans. Add the seasonings. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 30 minutes to 1 hour. Serve steaming hot with cheese and sour cream. Enjoy!

Note: This is not the exact chili recipe from Kelli and Mrs. H. I had to adjust the heat level for Elizabeth. :)

Sounds good, picture looks yummy...but I must correct you on something. Texas chili does not have beans!!! You cannot call chili with beans "Texas chili." No way. :)

Hi A Texan!!!
The original recipe is from Mrs. H (see link on my post) and she mentioned something about that, too! tee hee!!! I'm not sure why it's called Texas Chili, but it is GOOD!!! :)

Do you have a "real" Texas chili recipe??? I would love to try it!

Oh my, too funny, guess what we are having for supper has been planned on the menu for a week!

I guess great minds think alike!

(Of course my MIL is cooking, not me, I am still too tired to think, and the chili is coming out of the freezer from when I made a friends famous recipe, and the cornbread will be from More With Less).

We will have to try your recipe though!
