I made this with dinner tonight, I left out the chilies and added a can of corn to it. It went very well with pork chops and a salad.

I made this tonight to go with soup, and my family loved it. It is the best corn bread I've ever had, very moist and flavorful, and is just as easy to make as regular corn bread! I stirred a can of whole kernel corn into the batter, which added to the flavor and texture.

Mmmm it's delicious!

I just love the tase and it is not that hard to make. I have to keep printing the recipe because most of my friends want the recipe for it. Whenever I take it for potlucks I get lots of compliments and I take the recipe with me. I usually use fresh roasted chiles instead of can.

I made this as a go along for chili. I didn't have green chilies, so I used fresh frozen jalapenos a great substitue for a very spicy bread. The guys thought it was great!!!!
