Jalapeno Cornbread

I've seen several variations of this recipe, but this is the only one that does not require an additional flour. I also use 1/2 bacon and 1/2 olive oil for the shortening. This is so popular with my family that I bought a second divided iron pan so everyone could have enjoy a piece.
