My family has enjoyed this recipe for years. I usually put the jalapeno slices only on half the pan for those who like the heat. But be sure and mark it, so you'll know which half is hot! It's good with a bowl of pinto beans and a salad.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This stuffed cornbread is an easy and budget-friendly weeknight meal. It's hearty, satisfying, and full of flavor. American cheese adds a yummy gooeyness. Serve alone or with a spoonful of sour cream on top and Mexican corn on the side. This comforting crowd-pleaser would also be a-maz-ing topped with chili. Season the meat as you like and use your favorite cornbread mix. If you like sweeter cornbread, try Jiffy. For more savory bread, Corn-Kits is delish.
