Easy Chili and Cornbread

Chili
2lbs Ground Beef (I use ground Turkey)
1 large onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 8oz cans tomato sauce
1 6oz tomato paste
1 15oz can diced tomatoes
1 tsp cumin
1tsp paprika
2 tsp chili powder
1 tsp oregano
1tsp salt
½ tsp pepper
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 27oz can chili beans

optional:

add 1 jalapeno and 1 green bell pepper


1. Saute mean, onions, and garlic until done.
2. Add remaining ingredients to pot or crock pot and simmer for 2 hours.


Easy Cornbread

1 cup all purpose flour
1 cup yellow cornmeal
¼ cup sugar or substitute
4 tsp baking powder
¾ tsp salt
2 eggs
1 cup milk or buttermilk
¼ cup cooking oil or butter

1. Sift together flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder and salt. (I never sift and it still works)
2. Add eggs, milk and oil or melted butter. Beat until just smooth-do not overbeat.
3. Turn into a greased 9x9x2 inch baking pan. Bake in a 425: oven for 20-25 minutes.
4. Can add drained corn, bacon, finely chopped jalapeno peppers etc. for a different taste.
