Chili and cornbread

Recipes from my mom. I think the cornbread recipe is from the internet somewhere, but I'm not sure. 

Chili

1 lb ground beef or turkey
1 onion chopped
3 cans kidney beans
3 cups tomato sauce
1-2 tbsp chili powder
2 cups water

Brown onion and ground meat. Add remaining ingredients. Simmer for at least 30 minutes. Add water if it’s too thick.

* You can use a package of chili seasoning instead of the chili powder
* You can cook dried beans instead of canned beans. You would need about 5 cups.

Makes about 6 servings.

Cornbread

Combine:

½ cup cornmeal 
1½ cup flour
2/3 cup sugar
1 tbsp baking powder
½ tsp salt

Add:

1/3 cup oil
3 tbsp melted butter/margarine
1 tbsp honey
2 eggs, beaten
1¼ cup milk 

Bake at 350° in a greased square pan for 30-35 minutes or until center is done. (This cooks a bit better in a rectangular pan if you have one that is smaller than 13 by 9.)

It can also be baked as muffins for 15-20 minutes at 400°.
