Spicy Mexican Cornbread

Heather McDaniel


I just threw a few things together tonight, wanting a cornbread mixture that was different than any other night. This went over very well. You can adjust the heat level to your liking. I served this w/ turnip greens and a bit of veal. Yum!

  • 2In a med.-large bowl, mix cornbread, egg, milk, corn, jalapeno, and cheese.
