1 (4 1/2 oz) can chopped green chilis
1. Cook sausage and onion in large skilled over medium high heat for 5 minutes, stirring until sausage crumbles and is no longer pink. Drain.
2. Stir together eggs, buttermilk and oil. Add to cornbread mix until moistened. Batter will not be smooth. Add sausage, peas and remaining ingredients to batter, stirring well.
