Bacon & Jalapeno Corn Bread, Pan de Maiz con Tocino y Jalapeno

Juliann Esquivel


This Corn bread recipe is my very own creation and is really good. I have added, onions, red sweet pimento pepper, jalapeno pepper, and crispy bacon & butter & bacon grease and some sugar. I usually add more then one jalapeno for a cornbread with a kick. However that is optional. Results a truly delicious and moist corn bread. We love it at our house. It's a nice twist from the regular corn bread. Serve slathered with butter and Enjoy
