Questions & Replies

  1. Hello - on this Mexican cornbread recipe, it says 2 ounces cans chopped green chili peppers, drained - I didn't see 2 ounce cans in the store - and since you have the words "cans" in your recipe, it should like there is more than one can. Is the way it is worded in this recipe correct? Thank you!
  2. 2 ounces cans chopped green chili peppers, drained PLEASE EXPLAIN. 1 2 oz can or 2 20z canS ??


  1. This was the most delicious cornbread I have ever eaten. I love all of the extra ingredients that gave this bread oomph- the chilies, the cheese, the creamed corn all gave this that something special that took my taste buds over the top. Really moist & flavorful. I checked mine early - it was ready about 5 or so minutes before my buzzer went off. Note:I contacted the recipe poster regarding the missing baking powder(should be 4 tsp) and salt(should be 1/4 tsp) -and she is sending in a correction.
  2. Excellent cornbread! It won best cornbread at my churches chili cook off. The only think I did different was use pepper jack instead of monterey jack. I have made it a few more times and it is great every time :o) Thanks for sharing!
  3. This was a really good cornbread, but not quite as spicy as I would like. I will make this again, because it is a really good base recipe, but I will add a little pepper sauce, for heat, and maybe some chopped onion. Thanks for the great recipe.
  4. This recipe looks good but, I would never put that much sugar in any type of cornbread. I will omit most of it. I am from the south and no one in the south would call something like that real corn bread. It is more like a sweet muffin when you put that much sugar. Otherwise, good recipe and make this in a cast iron skillet not a pan for a great crispy bottom on the corn bread.
  5. This is an old standby recipe here in Arizona. I've made it many times. It's just delicious. In winter there's always that day when nothing will do but a pot of pinto beans & ham, with Mexican corn bread on the side. I cut the sugar to 1/2 cup and add 1/4 cup chopped onions, but the onions aren't necessary. I just like them.


  1. This was excellent! I used sucanat instead of sugar, whole wheat flour in place of the white and a can of corn with peppers in place of the cream corn. I added a little milk to make up some of the moisture factor. It was DELISH! It will be taking up residence in my permanent recipe collection.
  2. If God bakes cornbread, this is the recipe he uses, for it is hevean in food form. Moist, sweet, with a gread flavor to it. I did modify it a bit though - I doubled the cheese, as I didn't think it had enough, and I used two large diced jalapeno peppers instead of the green chili peppers. I also added two teaspoons of chile powder. Wow.
  3. This is the very first time I made cornbread. I used chopped jalapenos instead of the canned chiles so it was very hot! It turned out great and cooked perfectly in spite of sharing the oven with other dishes. I cooked it for the full time given. I served the leftovers for breakfast this morning with over easy eggs. Delicious!
