Honey Cornbread Mini Muffins

This month many of us will be preparing chili to enjoy as we watch sports from our recliners with the fire roaring in the fireplace.  Chili is best when served with lots of add-ons, like avocado, sour cream, grated cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese, chopped red onion, green onion….what else can you suggest?  My favorite add-on is cornbread, especially these mini muffins from my Cook the Part book.  You can mix the batter in the morning and bake right before serving.  Serve with your favorite chili recipe.  Here is one of our favorites:  http://www.cookthepart.com/2011/01/08/a-guaranteed-winner-for-the-chili-cook-off-park-city-chili/
