Classic Chili Con Carne with Cornbread

Slow-cooked beef and beans in a rich tomato sauce spiced with chilis and cumin make this an inviting meal on a wintry day. Warm, crumbly, moist cornbread studded with corn kernels and mild green chiles makes the perfect accompaniment for a classic chili con carne.

Peppery Corn Soup

Hot Mexican jalapeños add a peppery bite to what otherwise would be a humdrum corn soup.
