Green Chili Cheddar Cornbread Muffins

This cornbread recipe tops any cornbread I’ve ever tried. It’s sweet and fabulous. Whenever I have to make cornbread, I hands down always go to this recipe. I got it from Shar’s Bosch Kitchen in Gilbert years ago and have been making it ever since. You’ll 100% love this cornbread recipe, Enjoy!

Green Chili Cheddar Cornbread Muffins

1 Cup butter (2 sticks)

1 Cup sugar

4 eggs

1 ½ Cups flour

1 Cup cornmeal

1 ½ Tablespoons baking powder

¼ teaspoon salt

½ Cup ultra gel (optional-available at Shar’s Bosch Kitchen Store if in AZ)

1 4 oz can chopped green chilies

1 16oz can creamed corn

1 Cup shredded cheddar cheese

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a stand or electric mixer, cream the butter and sugar until well combined. Slowly add eggs until well combined. Pour in remaining ingredients in no particular order until just combined. Pour into a 9×13 inch baking dish or 24 muffin tins that have been sprayed with cooking spray. If baking in 9×13 inch dish bake for 25-30 minutes, if baking in muffin tins, bake for 15-18 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean from center.

Any Grey’s Anatomy fans here? I am dying to talk about the return of Denny with Izzy, is he dead or not!?? Have a great week! I’ll be back soon with some more good eatin’!

    I love your blog! I made this chili and cornbread last night and it was super. Everyone (even my fussiest eater) loved this meal. We’re having a potluck at church where everyone has to make their favorite chili recipe and this one is coming with us! The shredded chicken is an great twist.

    Keep the delicious recipes coming!!!

  2. Chef E

    Your popular here! I love this one, and will get to looking through your blogs when I get a chance. I usually spend one day a week reading as much as I can…cornbread and southwest got my attention!

  3. Jennifer

    I made the chicken chili last night and it came out really good. We’ll be having the leftovers tonight with cheese quesadilla’s so that I can begin my thanksgiving prep work!

  4. Pam

    I may just make this tomorrow night. I am roasting a chicken today and I always have leftovers. This looks amazing and full of great flavors.

  5. Dawn

    I am a huge fan of chili. I love how you added lime to this. This looks soooooo darn good Jenny! I will have to steal this and report back to you. It’s 32 degrees here, so I need this warming food.

  6. Laurie

    I made this recipe last night, it was wonderful! Just like all your recipes I have tried so far.

  7. Anne

    Yum! I’m making that cornbread tonight- it looks great!

    As for Grey’s Anatomy… I was really hoping she would finally settle in with Alex! It’ll be interesting to see where they are going with that.

  8. Jamie @ Baldwin Bungalow

    Some have said that Izzie has a brain tumor and is imagining that Alex is Denny. I say who cares why Denny’s back – let’s just be glad that he’s back!!! Last week’s episode was SO good – I can’t wait for tomorrow’s episode!

    Crazy Lady,
    I am cracking up at your comment! I have certainly had those days where I’ve goofed on a recipe. I’ll never forget putting 1/2 salt in my cookies thinking it was sugar at my sister’s house. What do you do?!!

  10. Crazy Lady

    yo picky palate lady, i just made your chili….BUT i accidentally put cayenne instead of chili powder (but fortunately did only one heaping tablespoon instead of two) but now I have a heaping gigantic pot of fire chili. i’m eating it with lots of sour cream…. don’t you hate those days?

  11. Veronica

    I love your chili…looks delicious and I looove Grey’s Anatomy. Oh I think that Denny is dead-how could he not be? Maybe it’s just that anyone that hooks up with Alex goes nuts!!

  12. Mandy

    I can’t say much about Grey’s since I dont’ watch it, but what a yummy dinner for a cold day! I can’t believe I missed 3 of your posts! I am waaaaay behind on reading my favorite blogs!!:) I’m working on a POM recipe, hopefully I’ll have it up tomorrow.

  13. Liz

    I’m making a vegetarian chili tonight (it’s been in my pile of must-make recipes for quite some time now) and think I’ll try your corn muffins on the side. It’s a yummy combo.

  14. Mom2three

    Oh this looks so yummy! I just put a chicken in the crockpot for some chicken noodle soup with leftover cornbread for tonight. Will have to try this on another day!

  15. Kim

    Cornbread muffins and chili, can’t think of a better fall meal. So good!Grey’s Anatomy, it has lost me the last couple of shows, not sure why?

  16. Megan

    oh my, these remind me of a jalapeno cheddar cornbread i had at a restaurant a few months ago. it was so good we tried to get our waitress to hint at the recipe but she wouldn’t budge 🙂 i bet these will be just like them. thanks so much!

  17. Patsyk

    Your chili and the corn muffins both look great and like something we would enjoy.

    As for the return of Denny… I don’t get it! I read somewhere today that they might be giving Izzy a brain tumor or something and that seeing people, etc. might be a symptom… not sure how true that is though!

  18. Zesty Cook

    Hi Jenny! Great recipe and post. I love the southwest cuisine and your pictures look fabulous.


  19. Bunny

    I love both these recipes Jenny, the chicken chili is a natural with the cornbread, and speaking of the cornbread I love it!!

  20. Brindi

    The cornbread muffins look good. Do you use the gel often? Do you find that it makes a big difference?

    I had stopped watching Grey’s Anatomy after Denny died. I may have to start watching again.

  21. Katherine Aucoin

    Cnicken chili and cornbread, can it get much better? Everything looks wonderful Jenny!
