Jalapeno Cheese Cornbread in Skillet

Hi Everyone,

You know how I always talk about my foodie bucket list?  It’s the list that keeps growing and growing.  Every time I  take one-off the list, about two more appear.  Well today is one I can cross one off the list, it’s my Jalapeno Cheese Cornbread in a Skillet.  Let me tell you, I am not kidding, but this is the best cornbread I have ever made and I can go as far as saying the best cornbread I have ever eaten.  Cornbread is not one of those things that I order at a restaurant or make too much, but for some reason I was craving it.  So I decided to whip it together in a matter of minutes and dig in as soon as it was done.  It blows my mind!

This recipe didn’t come easy to make. I was out of milk, so I thought I would use coconut milk, I was out of that too. What the heck! After great thought I remembered that Little Jenny had milk in her fridge. I stole it! Hope she doesn’t mind? But when she comes home to Spicy Jalapeno Cheese Cornbread, I think she will forgive me.

I have to describe the taste of the cornbread to you. It’s spicy, cheesy, moist, light and so filling. The recipe makes 10 slices, but I think you could get a way and have 12 slices. It’s pretty thick! I made this before dinner and you know what? I don’t want dinner because I am stuffed. The cornbread is made with 1 cup of pickled jalapenos, but please use less if you want less spicy bread. I also used cheddar cheese and frozen corn. It is truly chock full of goodness. Now you can see why I am full.

One thing I have to tell you is in the pictures the conrbread looks crumbly. That’s because I cut it when it was still pretty warm. You know I have no patience. If you actually take the time to let it cool, it will hold it’s shape.

The cornbread would be a great addition to a big bowl of chili, soup or steak. Actually I think it would compliment most meals, but I kind of have a thing for it.

Have a super great day!

  1. I’m interested in seeing your ‘Foodie Bucket List’. Could you maybe make a blog post about it one day? It’s always interesting to see what other people want to learn how to cook/bake.

  2. This cornbread is pretty fantastic!

  3. This recipe sounds really great, and reminds me of the one I used to make with sour cream, cheese, and creamed corn. Very high calorie. I would make this serve 12, which would bring down the calories perfectly for what I need to go with my favorite chili. 🙂 Really glad you shared this.

  4. Can’t wait to make this one, but what is “corn flour” Jennifer? Did you possibly mean corn meal?
