Very Flavorful!

This is a very flavorful cornbread. I cut down on the jalapeno a little because I thought that it might be too spicy. However, I think I am going to make it with the full recipe. It is a simple, delicious dish that goes well with just about anything!

Lovely cornbread

I made some little adjustments like extra milk and oil instead of water,a cream style corn instead of the whole ones, garlic salt instead of regular and no sugar. This cornbread was the best I've ever tasted. It's now officially on the "FEEL GOOD" food list.We are definitely hooked.

Great cornbread recipe.

This was a delicious cornbread. It was very moist, my family loved it. I omitted the sugar, as we do not like sweet cornbread.

Jalapeno Cheese Corn Bread

by D. Debbie , Walla Walla, WA on Mar. 2007

This is very good, I liked the jalapeno and the monterey jack cheese in it vs. the cheddar cheese and green chilies that I've always used int the recipe I always make. I will make this again.

Instead of adding whole corn, cream style corn is good with sharp cheddar cheese, My mother and I bake this cornbread. It is also good with greens.

I made this to go with homemade soup for lunch, and it was absolutely fantastic. Most cornbread is too dry, but this was moist and delicious. Definitely a keeper.

Great muffins, too!
