Chipotle Chicken Cornbread Cups

Cheddar cheese and sour cream give these appetizer cups great flavor and texture.


  • 1 cup (4 oz/125 g) grated cheddar cheese (1 cup/250 mL)
  • 1 pkg (7.5-8.5 oz/250 mL) corn muffin mix
  • 1 cup (8 oz/250 g) sour cream, divided
  • 1/4 cup (50 mL) all-purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) Chipotle Rub
  • 1 small red bell pepper
  • 1-2   green onions with tops (about 1/3 cup thinly sliced)
  • 1 1/2 cups (375 mL) finely diced cooked chicken
  •  Additional sour cream (optional)
  •  Snipped fresh cilantro (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grate cheese using Rotary Grater. In Classic Batter Bowl, combine cheese, muffin mix,  3/4 cup of the sour cream, flour and 1 tbsp of the rub; mix to form a thick batter using Mix ‘N Scraper®.

  2. Spray wells of Deluxe Mini-Muffin Pan with nonstick cooking spray. Divide batter evenly among wells using Small Scoop. Bake 14-16 minutes or until golden brown.

  3. Meanwhile, on Large Grooved Cutting Board, finely dice bell pepper and thinly slice green onions using Chef's Knife. Place bell pepper into (8-in.) Sauté Pan; cook over medium-high heat 2-3 minutes or until pepper begins to soften. Add chicken and remaining 1 tbsp rub to pan; cook and stir 2-3 minutes or until heated through. Remove pan from heat. Combine chicken mixture, green onions and remaining 1/4 cup sour cream in Small Batter Bowl; mix well.

  4. Remove muffins from oven to Stackable Cooling Rack. Immediately press tops of muffins with Mini-Tart Shaper to form cups. Cool in pan 3 minutes. Carefully remove cups to serving platter. Divide chicken mixture evenly among cups. Top with additional sour cream and sprinkle with cilantro, if desired.

Make indentations in batter with Mini-Tart Shaper to form cups prior to baking, dipping tart shaper into additional cornmeal as needed to avoid sticking. Bake and fill as directed.
