Top with grated cheddar cheese and a dollop of sour cream, if desired.

Try adding green chiles or whole kernel corn to the cornbread. Cut back on the milk a bit because of the moisture from the green chiles or corn. Add a pinch of Chili Powder for a zippier flavor.

    If your out camping, mix the cornbread batter in a zip lock, seal and combine. Cut the corner off the bag and squeeze the cornbread batter over the chili and bake. This will save some clean up.
