I didn’t want to make just any corn bread to serve with my 13 Bean Turkey Chili I wanted something different so I added jalapenos and cheddar cheese to the batter before cooking.
Jalapeno Cheddar Cheese Corn Bread
1 ¼ cups yellow corn meal
¾ cup flour
2 ½ teaspoons baking powder
¼ cup sugar
½ teaspoon salt
1 jalapeno pepper, chopped (remove seeds before hand for a mild flavor)
1 cup cheddar cheese, grated
¼ cup oil
1 cup milk
Preheat oven to 400⁰F. Grease pan (9-inch or muffin tin).
In a large bowl combine corn meal, flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, jalapeno pepper and cheese.
Mix the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients until moistened. Pour batter into prepared pan.
Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until a golden brown for the muffin tin.
