Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

Cava, Grenache, and Shiraz are my top picks for Chili. These juicy reds don't have too much tannin (important for spicy foods), but a sparkling wine like cava can tame the heat even better. The Torres Sangre de Toro Cava with a 5 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 15 dollars per bottle.

Torres Sangre de Toro Cava

Pale yellow with fine and persistent perlage. Intense. Floral and fresh fruit aromas in perfect harmony with citrus and aniseed notes. Creamy bubbles, luscious and fresh. Lovely as an aperitif or paired with fish and seafood.

Instructions

  1. In a large skillet saute onion in oil until soft and translucent, seasoning with salt and pepper. Add garlic and saute until fragrant. Remove 2/3 of the mixture from pan and set aside. Add green chilies with their juices and saute for 2-3 minutes. Remove and set aside in a separate bowl.
  2. In the same skillet brown ground beef, crumbling it as it cooks. When cooked through carefully drain grease. Add the onion mixture, chili powder, Worcestershire, oregano, paprika, cinnamon, nutmeg, and water. Mix thoroughly and continue cooking over medium-low heat as you add the tomatoes with juices, the beans and corn. Mix well and cook for 3-4 minutes.
  3. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and grease a 9x13 inch casserole dish. Pour the meat mixture in and spread evenly over bottom. Sprinkle two cups of the cheese over top.
  4. In a large bowl combine the flour, cornmeal, baking powder and salt.
  5. In a separate medium bowl whisk the eggs, milk, butter and sour cream. Add this mixture to the dry mix and stir together.
  6. Add the onion/green chile mixture and the remaining cup of cheese. Stir in. Pour over top of the meat mixture. Spread evenly. Sprinkle Chile powder over top.
  7. Bake 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick comes clean from center of cornbread. Let set for 10 minutes before serving.

Tips

Health Tips

  • You can easily swap half of the white flour in most recipes for whole wheat flour to add some fiber and protein. It does result in a heavier dough, so for cookies, cakes, etc., you might try swapping in whole wheat pastry flour.

  • Since most of its calories come from fat, sour cream has a bad reputation for being an unhealthy food. However, fat is an important part of the diet and studies suggest people who eat full fat dairy are thinner than those who reach for reduced fat products. That said, fat has more calories per gram than carbohydrates or protein, so if you are counting calories to lose weight, you might want to try substituting greek yogurt for some of the sour cream in recipes that call for a lot of it.

  • If you can, choose grassfed butter for a better nutritional profile—more vitamins, a favorable omega 3/6 ratio, etc.

  • Studies have shown people who drink full fat milk are thinner than those who drink low-fat or fat-free milk instead. Keep that in mind before you decide to swap. If you want to go dairy free, however, you can replace milk with unsweetened soy milk in most recipes.

Price Tips

  • Most dairy products stay good well past their sell-by date. Instead of throwing out perfectly safe food that is just a few days or maybe even a week or two old, make sure the product smells fine, has a normal texture, and doesn't taste funny. Sniff testing isn't exactly rocket science and it can keep you from wasting food (and money).

Cooking Tips

  • Like many ground spices, ground nutmeg loses its flavor over time. For the best nutmeg taste, purchase whole nutmeg and grate it right as you use it. If you're a real nutmeg lover, you can even buy a nutmeg grinder.

  • Butter's incredible flavor has made it an extremely popular cooking fat, but it is important to know that butter has the lowest smoke point of almost any cooking fat. This means butter literally starts to smoke at a lower temperature than most other fats between 250-350 degrees Fahrenheit. So while butter is great for cooking at lower temperatures, you should probably use canola oil, coconut oil, or another oil with a higher smoke point for frying and other high temperature cooking.

  • Confused by the different types of cream — Most differences arise from the fat content of the cream, and whether or not the cream has been "soured" by adding lactic acid bacteria to give it a tangy flavor.

  • If you've had your baking powder for awhile, make sure it's still going to work by mixing it with a little water. If it doesn't fizz, you need to replace it.

Green Tips

  • Worcestershire sauce often contains anchovies, so if you are vegan, vegetarian, or allergic to seafood, be sure to look for a brand that doesn't!

  • To avoid antibiotics, hormones, and other nasties in your milk, choose organic whenever possible. If you can't afford organic, look for milk labeled hormone and antibiotic free. It is often less expensive.
