Jalapeño Corn Bread

This Jalapeño Corn Bread speckled with chopped jalapeños and cheese is a great accompaniment for chili, soup and meat dishes. Like it hot? Add another jalapeño and leave the seeds and membranes in the jalapeños. It seems that some dishes just beg for a large slice of corn bread. For me, I cannot think of serving a bowl of soup without a slice of corn bread. If I did, I would probably be asked to leave the dinner table! :) I made this a few weeks ago with rave reviews, serve this corn bread with Beef and Pinto Bean Chili and I am certain it will become a favorite in your house as well.

    heh lovely cornbread. Have you tried Kim Boyces version? She starts with polenta (as in cooked) and it makes for a very moist and rich bread. I’ve blogged about it if you want to look at the recipe: http://www.thegoodsoup.com/recipes/breads-biscuits/savoury/honey-and-rosemary-cornbread/

    This cornbread looks delicious! I, too, love cornbread with soup. I imagine some cheddar cheese would also be wonderful mixed into the batter.
