Mexicana Cornbread

Marilyn Renfro Gore


As a colon cancer survivor, I am not supposed to eat but 18 oz. of red meat a month so I cook a lot of chicken but save my "meat cheats" for favorite dishes! And this is a favorite dish at my house! Instead of the Velveeta Cheese, you can use sliced American with 6 slices on bottom half and 6 slices on top half! Or use both! Adjust the amount of jalapeno according to how much heat you like! I have grandchildren around a lot and use less heat in cooking because the HOT lovers can always add more to their plates! HAHA!
