4 servings

Ingredients
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled, plus more for the pan
  • 1/4 cup whole milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/4 cups sour cream
  • 1 (8 1/2-ounce) package cornbread mix
  • 1 jalapeno, seeded and diced, plus 12 thin slices for serving
  • 1 pound ground beef chuck
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 green bell pepper, diced
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 (15-ounce) can pinto beans, rinsed and drained
Directions
  • Preheat the oven to 400°F. Butter 6 cups of a muffin tin for larger cornbread muffins or 8 cups for smaller ones.

  • Whisk the melted butter, milk, and egg until smooth. Add the cornbread mix and stir until smooth, then fold in the diced jalapeno. Divide among 6 or 8 muffin cups and top each with a jalapeno slice. Bake until golden brown, about 18 minutes

  • Meanwhile, heat a large cast iron skillet over high heat. Add the beef and spread in an even layer. Cook, stirring and breaking the meat into bits, until browned, about 7 minutes. Add the onion and pepper cook, stirring occasionally, until crisp-tender, about 5 minutes.

  • Add the chili powder and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add the beans and 1 cup water. Boil, mashing about half of the beans into the mixture, until the liquid is very thick, about 3 minutes.

  • Unmold the cornbread and split each in half. Divide the chili among the bottom halves and top with the muffin tops. Serve hot.
