1 1/2 cups
ALBERS® White or Yellow Corn Meal
1 1/2 cups
SARGENTO® ChefStyle Shredded Mild Cheddar Cheese
1 (7 ounce) can
ORTEGA® Diced Green Chiles
1 1/2 teaspoons
1 (12 fluid ounce) can
NESTLE® CARNATION® Evaporated Milk
I admit that I altered the recipe slightly - used 2% milk instead of evaporated, used 2 cups of cheese, used butter instead of oil and added half green chiles/half jalapenos but it was wonderful! It was very moist and the jalapenos added a kick. It was great with chili - a real winner.
Next time I'll cut down on the amount of chiles. But aside from that, it's very moist w/ a different sort of flavor and texture. The best part is, unlike regular cornbread, you can re-heat in the the microwave w/ out it becoming too dry and still edible, I think that's due to the cheese.
This is the best cornbread I ever made. It has lots of corn taste and goes great with stews and chili.
Excellent bread. Served it with chili,nice change from regular bread or buns. I will make this again.
The corn bread was a big hit at my family's chili feed! It made more than enough for 8 people. The bread had a moist texture and delicious flavor. A definite thumbs up!
Very good! I added some hot peppers to it too. Nice and moist, great taste, looked wonderful. Great recipe! Makes a big pan of cornbread!
