This jalapeno cheddar cornbread is a delicious savory cornbread full of diced jalapenos and cheddar cheese. Perfect for a quick and easy side dish!
I usually like my corn bread sweet with butter and honey on top, but this time around I decided to switch things up and make my cornbread savory and and a little bit spicy too! This jalapeno cheddar cornbread is a perfect side dish to most meals! It would be great served up with the traditional chili and corn bread meal too.
This corn bread is easy to make starting with a store bought corn bread mix, so the prep time is only about 10 minutes! You’ll need 1 15oz corn bread/muffin mix (or 2 7-8.5 oz mixes), 2 eggs, 1 can Del Monte Sweet Cream Style Corn and 1 can Del Monte Whole Kernel Corn, 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese, and 1/4 cup diced up jalapeno pieces. Adapted from this recipe.
You can make your corn bread in a 9 inch baking dish, or for a fun twist cook it up in muffin tins. To cook it in a muffin tin, fill each tin about 90% full of corn bread and bake for 15 to 20 minutes until corn bread is golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean.
Just in time for Easter, this savory corn bread dish is the perfect addition to your Easter holiday meal! Its ready in less than 1 hour, with only 10 minutes of prep time so that your Easter holiday can be spent enjoying time with your family instead of slaving away in the kitchen.
