Deb's Moist & Cheesy Jalapeño Cornbread

Debra Elwell


This Cornbread Recipe came about by accident but quickly became a favorite with family and friends. It is so quick and easy and most people have the ingredients in their food stores. It is very versital. If you like it hot, just use deseeded, diced hot Jalapeños. If your like my family, Mix mild and hot peppers to give it a spicier taste or just use mild which is mildly delicious. It makes a lot but no matter just put the remainder in the freezer or easily cut the recipe in half. I hope you and yours enjoy it as much as my family does.
