I am 15 years old and just starting to love to cook! This recipe was very quick and easy and tasted great. My whole family loved it. I added olives and alittle more peppers. I recommend serving with a spicy mexican dish!!

I couldn't find Self-Rising Cornmeal, so I bought the regular and added 1t Baking Soda & a little salt. Also, I used 2C Shredded Cheddar instead of 3C. Both adjustments worked out fine, BUT, this bread was REALLY to MOIST for my liking. The flavor was WONDERFUL, but definately cooked it longer (hoping it would dry out) than what the directions said. I did bake this to go with the White Chili with Ground Turkey (also on this site) and it was DELICIOUS! What I did was break up the this corn bread into the Chili so you couldn't see/feel how moist this was, and between the two dishes and there flavors, everyone ooooo'd & ahhhhhh'd at the table. I do think, next time I'll try regular corn instead of creamed, but I'll definately try this again with that alteration. If you bake this with the other receipe - cook this one first - by the time this is done, so isn't the chili - perfect timing!

This was so moist. I was alittle leary of the green chiles, so I only put 1 teaspoon in it but they were not hot, as I expected. The chiles did add a slight mexican flavor to it.It was raved about at our mexican pot luck at work.

Being from the South, We like our cornbread unsweetened (as Emeril will tell you) We like mexican cornbread, not cupcakes.. This recipe is one of the best we've ever tried..

My husband and I really enjoyed this cornbread with Taco Soup. I didn't have sef-rising cornmeal so I used regular cornmeal and added salt and baking powder. I also used 1 1/2 cups shredded Pepper Jack cheese and 1 1/2 cups shredded Mexican Style cheese. I added 4 oz. can chopped green chiles. The cornbread was moist. I'll cook this again. Thanks for sharing.

This was pretty good. When I make Mexican cornbread I brown ground beef and mix it with taco seasoning. I then put it into a baking dish and top with the cornbread and bake according to the directions for cornbread. It's a meal then.

My husband and I absolutely loved this cornbread! So moist! So delicious! And so attractive in the pan! The only change I plan to make the next time I make this is to add a bit more chile peppers to really kick it up!

Awesome!!! I used a green onion, 1 jalapeno pepper and about a tablespoon of the jalapeno juice for a little added kick. It was so good that my husband had 2 pieces eaten before we ever sat down to supper.
