Garduno's Sweet Corn Spoon Bread

JoSele Swopes


Having been a customer of Garduno's Mexican Restaurant for many years I fell in love with these...They would serve them on the combo plate as a side dish...It is like having desert at the same time...I love these...It is similar to spoon bread....I have made a few changes to it....Which is because I love green chili and onion powder, to include raw sugar rather than white sugar plus sea salt...They just add to the flavor...
