Jalapeno Honey Cornbread with Chili

There’s nothing like a hot bowl of chili with an oven-fresh side of cornbread, one of the top comfort foods. Perfect for cold rainy days, cozy up on the sofa and enjoy a warm bowl of chili. Adding Sonoran Spice Jalapeno Powder to the cornbread and chili adds a special touch.

One of the earliest recordings of the American Chili was in 1828, in San Antonio Texas. There are many variations of how chili can be created. Let’s not forget the side, in our case warm jalapeno honey cornbread, yum! You can use other sides such as tortilla chips, tortillas, and even spaghetti noodles.

Adding some jalapeno powder shares a mild heat to the dish. These peppers generally measure between 2,500 and 8,000 Scoville Heat Units. Try to top your chili with a side of sour cream, grated cheese, or by adding fresh jalapeno slices.
