Chili Cornbread Cupcakes #SundaySupper Chili Cook-off

It’s Sunday Supper day my friends! Today’s event is even more exciting, as the Sunday Supper crew is holding it’s very own Chili Cook-Off! We are all sharing our favorite chili recipes that will be judged, voted on, and eligible for prizes! The recipe with the most votes at the end of the voting period wins a golden ticket to the 2014 Food and Wine Conference! I attended the conference last year in Orlando, and I want to go again! I need your votes on my adorably delicious Chili Cornbread Cupcakes!

One of my favorite memories of the Food and Wine Conference was having so many of the Sunday Supper crew attend so we could actually spend time and eat a family dinner together. It was such fun and breaking bread together is the very heart of the Sunday Supper Movement. Of course with any family, when there is a free conference ticket up for grabs, there is bound to be some crazy competition! All the chili creations are being shared this week for YOU to judge and cast your vote. Yes! Our readers will be judging the cook-off!

For today’s cook-off, I made a simple chili using a few ingredients I always have on hand in my pantry. My secret ingredient for today is thick and chunky Manwich sauce. I wanted a little bit of a sweeter chili to complement the cornbread muffins. We usually top our chili with shredded cheddar cheese and sour cream, so a cornbread cupcake sounded like a delicious combination for the competition.
