How to Make Mexican Cornbread


  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF. In a medium bowl, combine all dry ingredients; whisk until well-blended and set aside. In a large bowl, combine all the wet ingredients. Add dry to wet ingredients.
  2. To this add corn kernels, both cheese, and peppers. Combine very well and pour into a 9 x 9-inch baking dish lightly greased with butter. Smooth the top with a spatula and transfer to the oven; bake for 45 to 55 minutes or until a cake tester inserted in the center of the bread comes out clean. Let it cool for 15 minutes before cutting it.
