Natalie's Story

I am not usually a cornbread lover. My husband is and was raised on Southern Style Cooking.
His mom passed away at the age of 19 and I have tried to always incorporate meals or sides that his mom would have made. Everyone I have ever made this for loves it!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Such a delightful change from traditional cornbread! With a hint of heat and loads of flavor, my chili just found a new best friend.

1 c
self rising cornmeal (martha white)

I live in Tennessee in a small town bout 30 miles from the Georgia line. I don't know why people think "southern"cornbread has all these ingredients and for sure it DOES NOT have sugar( that's sweet corn cakes).Cornbread ( the way I learned) is first you grease your cast iron skillet with shortening( I only use Crisco) with your oven pre_heating @ 400, mix cornmeal,1 egg, and buttermilk until thick like pancake batter, pour into skillet and put into hot oven. Cook until golden brown turn out onto a plate immediately and enjoy!

I fixed this a couple of weeks ago and added the green chilis. It was so good I've been thinking about it nearly every day. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe! :)
