Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Cut meat into 1/2-inch strips or small cubes, if not using ground beef. In a large saucepan, brown the meat. Add celery and onion to the saucepan. Drain the grease from the saucepan. Cook about 5 minutes or until onion and celery is tender, stirring occasionally.
Add chili beans, tomatoes, corn, chili powder, salt, and pepper to saucepan. Bring to boiling; reduce heat to keep warm.
Cornbread Topping: Combine cornmeal, flour, Clabber Girl Baking Powder, and salt in a medium bowl. In a small bowl stir together egg, milk, and oil. Add to cornmeal mixture, stirring just until combined.
Transfer hot beef mixture to a 2-quart casserole. Pour cornmeal mixture over the beef mixture. Bake in preheated oven about 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in topping comes out clean. Serve hot in bowls.
