7. Chilli Con Cornbread

Chilli con carne is often eaten with cornbread in the southern states of USA and makes for a delicious alternative to rice. Serve it on the side in chunks or make a lid for your pot of chilli to keep it warm until you’re ready to serve. Our cornbread recipe has chunks of sweetcorn and caramelised onion for a bit of extra flavour and texture.
