Cornbread (Side Dish)

This is the perfect accompaniment for any chili. It’s best served right out of the oven. Dip it in a little olive oil for extra flavor.

1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Spray a 9-inch square baking dish with cooking oil.

2. Spray a non-stick skillet with cooking oil, add the corn and sauté until browned, approximately 5 minutes. Place in a mixing bowl.

3. Add the cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder, yogurt, eggs, oil, onion and jalapeño. Mix until combined. Pour into the prepared baking pan and bake for 20 minutes or until a tester comes out clean. Cut into squares and serve with chili.
