Chili Cook-off Side item?

Friend of mine is participating in a Chili cook-off, and I want to help out by providing a interesting side-item to go with the chili. This isn't any sort of special contest, simply a in-house contest with some folks across the military base I work at.

However the idea of going with ye ol faithful, cornbread, is something I'd like to avoid. I'm not typically an adventerous person, except in the one area of cooking where I like to try new things. So I'm wondering if anyone has any idea for an alternative side item or perhaps a non-standard cornbread reciepe that would be interesting to go with chili.

P.S.
If it matters, my friend (and I) are big fans of really thick chili, and he has a preference for a bit of spiciness to it.

i often add cheese,and green chilies to corn muffins. gives them a little boost and of course you can also add whole kernel corn. i also put out sour cream, grated cheese, olives, croûtons, and anything else you think would be good in chili. let everyone dress up their bowl as they like.

and or a green salad.

drawing a big ole blank here.
sorry, my thoughts were same as others.
cornbread with creamed corn, sugar, ortega chilies, cheese, lots of cheese, bacon with bacon drippings in there too, other than that, I can only come up with spaghetti noodles and finely grated cheese for those who'd like to do the SL chili and put their chili atop the spag and dollop with cheese and onions..........

I do this..don't need a recipe.

To what ever cornbread you bake add diced jalapenos. That's all you need to do. I use the ones from a jar for this and it works really well.
