Savory Mexican Cornbread

Print Email

Inspired by Easy Mexican Meals

1-1/2 cups (6 oz) shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
3/4 cup buttermilk
1/3 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs
1 can (8.5 oz) cream-style corn
1 can (4 oz) chopped green chiles
1 cup cornmeal
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
Optional garnishes: Jalapenos, cilantro, honey and butter

In a large bowl mix cheese, buttermilk, vegetable oil, eggs, corn and green chiles. In another bowl mix cornmeal, all-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add to cheese mixture; stir just until dry ingredients are moistened.

Generously spray a 1-1/2 quart casserole dish with cooking spray. Pour mixture into casserole. I garnished the top with some jalapenos and cilantro but it's totally optional. Bake 40 to 50 minutes in a 375°F oven or until cornbread is a deep golden brown and toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cooking times are going to vary based on width and height of the pan you use. My dish was 10" in diameter and 1-3/4" deep. My cooking time was 41 minutes.

Cool in the pan 10 minutes and slice into wedges. Serve warm. Drench in honey and butter if you desire.
