1 (8.25-ounce) can cream style corn
¼ cup chopped mixed bell peppers
¼ cup chopped green onions

  1. Heat oven to 450°F. Spray 6 (12-ounce) ramekins or 2 quart casserole with non-stick cooking spray.

  2. In large saucepan on medium-high heat brown sausage on both sides. Add onions, cilantro and garlic. Sauté 2 minutes. Add chili, corn with red and green bell peppers and black beans. Mix well. Bring to a simmer. Lower heat. Cook 5 to 7 minutes or until heated through. Stir in 1/2 cup cheese mixture. Remove from heat.

  3. In mixing bowl combine corn muffin mix, egg, milk, butter, cream style corn, mixed bell peppers and green onions. Mix until just combined. Spread a thin layer of corn muffin mixture to each ramekin. Place ramekins on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake 5 to 7 minutes or until mixture is just set.

  4. Reduce heat to 400°F. Place a scoop of chili mixture on top of corn muffin base in each ramekin. Divide remaining cheese between ramekins. Top with remaining corn muffin mixture. Bake 18 to 20 minutes, or until corn bread topping is golden brown and chili mixture is bubbly. Garnish, if desired.
