I received this recipe from a good friend years ago and have made it often over the years. When I have creamed corn in the summertime, I will put enough for the cornbread in a small container and freeze it, then when I need creamed corn for Mexican cornbread I will have just the right amount on hand. I do the same with the green peppers and jalapenos. It is delicious with white beans, soup, or leftover to make a cornbread salad.
