  • oversized muffin pan
  • electric mixer



  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup milk
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • ¼ cup butter melted
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup shredded Cheddar cheese


  • your favorite chili recipe
  • Mexican cheese blend
  • Cheddar Corn Muffins



  • Preheat the oven to 400-degrees F. Grease an oversized muffin pan and set aside.
  • In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat together the egg with the rest of the wet ingredients.
  • Mix in the dry ingredients and the cheese until just combined, taking care not to over mix.
  • Portion the muffins into the prepared pan.
  • Bake for about 15 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Remove to a cooling rack and let rest.


  • Now here’s how to put it all together:
  • Let the corn muffins cool until you can easily handle them. Using a paring knife, gently cut out the top and center of the muffin. You want to create a little well for the chili.
  • Add a bit of shredded cheese (I like a Mexican cheese blend), then top with chili. The amount depends on the size of the muffin and how big you cut the well.
  • Add a bit more cheddar cheese to the top.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place all the corn muffin chili cups on the tray. Bake at 350-degrees F until the cheese is melted. Serve hot.
