Green Chili Corn Bread

Rose Mary Mogan


Who would ever believe that mayonnaise could make CORN BREAD taste so moist & tasty. The basic recipe for this wonderful Corn Bread came from MARTHA WHITE"S SOUTHERN SAMPLER COOKBOOK, AND WAS THE PERFECT Compliment to my HUNGRY MANS HEARTY BEAN SOUP.

The rich flavors of the green chili's & roasted red peppers, gave it the elevated flavors it really needed.

The bread has the consistency of Corn Souffle, & was so tasty. I am sure it would be a great accompaniment to any soup addition. It makes a large amount so you could serve it at a cold winter's event for a group of friends & family.

How to Make Green Chili Corn Bread


  • 1Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease or spray a 13 X9X2 inch baking pan with cooking spray and set aside. Some of the ingredients used to create the recipe.
  • 2Add eggs and buttermilk to a large bowl and beat together until blended. Additional ingredients used. I decided not to use the Chili seasoning mix.
  • 3Now add in the other ingredients. Combine the flour corn meal, sugar, & baking powder to a smaller bowl then stir till blended together BEFORE YOU ADD to the larger bowl, then add the corn & drained green chili's then stir till blended together.
  • 4Add in the chopped roasted red peppers & mayonnaise shredded cheeses, then stir to blend.
  • 5Don't forget to add in the chopped onions they add lots of flavor.
  • 6Pour batter into prepared dish & bake for 50 minutes to an hour until golden brown, mine took 55 minutes, and tooth pick inserted in center comes out clean.
  • 7Allow to cool for 15 minutes before serving.
  • 8I served mine with HUNGRY MANS BEAN SOUP. Please NOTE I prefer using YELLOW CORN MEAL, but either will work. Also I didn't have Corn Meal Mix, so I created my own with the addition of flour, corn meal baking powder & sugar. Chose not to add salt.
