Recipe by Paula
"This cornbread is so moist I eat it with a fork rather than picking it up. It has a slight kick, but for more spice add more chile cooking sauce or a jalapeno pepper. Serve it with chili, vegetable soup, or beef stew. But it also makes a great bedtime snack with a glass of milk!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

Made as cornbread layer for Sweet Tamale Pie. Complimented that dish perfectly.
Very salty and greasy with awful flavor. Nothing at all like cornbread I've eaten in the past. I guess the 2 TABLESPOONS of baking powder + 1 cup of cheese + 1 tablespoon of kosher salt should have clued me in.
Moist, delicious, and full of flavor - what more could you ask of for from a cornbread recipe? This definitely was a nice change from regular cornbread plus, it had a nice little "kick" to it which made it a perfect accompaniment to a warm bowl of chili. Thanks Paula for a wonderful recipe!
Moist and flavorful. The pepperjack and Tomatilla Verde Mexican Cooking Sauce give this just the right amount of spices for a little kick without over powering the cornbread. Paula what a great recipe. This will be my go to cornbread when I want a Mexican flair.
Thank you, Paula, for a delicious cornbread. The flavor was perfect! The texture was moist which all of my guests raved about. Mine turned out a bit crumbly (probably due to the fact that I added 2 1/4 cups of flour).
I made this for "Mexican" day at my office. It was a hit. I had to make one substitution. I could not find the tomatillo sauce with a prepared salsa verde. Because if that, I'll use just pepper jack cheese (1 cup) and omit the cheddar. It could use a little more kick since I had to substitute the sauce.
This is more of an authentic cornbread with the elimination of flour, no eggs, etc. With that, I will admit that I'm more of a lover of a southern cornbread that combines flour, eggs, butter...did I leave off sugar here? With that said, there's a benefit to this recipe: it could potentially be gluten free...and if you're like me and have someone in the family who has an intolerance to gluten, this is a relatively easy way to give them something with a little more taste than some of the bland things on the market. I'm not clear as to whether or not Herdez is a gluten free product, but surely something could be substituted if not. For those on gluten free diets who are new to all of this, just use caution checking your ingredients to be sure that everything you're putting in does not contain gluten...that would include the cornmeal.
This is a very tasty cornbread. Texture was perfect, and it cut into squares beautifully. You get just a little kick from the tomatillo verde sauce and pepperjack cheese to let you know that you're eating something from South of the Border. And the addition of the chopped peppers gives the cornbread good eye appeal. Great job Paula!
