Corn Bread

I am not a huge fan of corn bread at all. That is until I found this recipe. It isn't really like bread at all being more cake"y"  and solid and filled with things that more bland and boring corn bread is often missing.

Mexican Corn Bread

3 eggs
1 cup milk
1½ cup corn meal
½ cup vegetable oil
1-10 oz can Southwestern style corn
1 pod hot pepper (optional, can substitute with ½ tsp black pepper)
½ sweet green pepper chopped (again, optional)
1 tsp salt
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Mix in order given, pour into 8x8 pan and bake at 425º for 30-35 minutes.

I like serving it with refried beans. Simple, filling, and delicious!


  1. Sounds great, but I think this would not sit well on my stomach. It has a few ingredients that my stomach would not highly appreciate. However, I am still tempted to try it. :)

  2. That recipe sounds great. I sometimes add half a can of green chiles to my cornbread.

  3. Mexican cornbread is a favorite here in East Texas...the hotter the better :)

  4. We make our Mexican cornbread very similarly to yours. But I use a jalapeno pepper instead of bell pepper. It's delicious! Either way it's great with a bowl of pinto or red beans and helping of "wilted lettuce".

  5. YUMMM! Sounds good and easy and those are my two favorite things when cooking ~ :D

  6. Wow this sounds like something I should try to make. Thanks! Blessings, Joanne

  7. Something we can sink our tastebuds into! TY!

  8. I love cornbread in any form. I find it's sweetness especially good to complement spicy dishes. I like your version too.

  9. Oh Yum! My hubby's gonna love this.

  10. I love cornbread. I've copied down your recipe and will try it one day soon.

    I love your blog and it may take me a while but I'm looking forward to reading it from the beginning.

  11. Sounds yummy! Reminds me of my grandmother's jalapeno cornbread...she used 3 medium jalapenos for her "heat" :) And by the by, thank you for the sweet words you have left at my blog. I truly appreciate them :)
