This cornbread is always a hit whenever I make it. It's a piece of heaven fresh out of the oven, with a little butter. I like to bake it in my cast iron skillet (11-in.); it seems to give it a different flavor.
NOTE: If using fresh chiles, they should be roasted, peeled and chopped before measuring. My cousin's mishap resulted in her having only about a tablespoon of chiles in her bread, so I made sure to add this note.
