The Best  Jalapeno  Cornbread

Made with 100% cornmeal


Made with 100% cornmeal, this cornbread is loaded with jalapenos, chunks of cheddar and smoky bits of chipotle. Topped with corn and more jalapenos, you will never miss the gluten!

These are all the ingredients you'll need to make this showstopper of a cornbread.

This recipe has just 3 Tablespoons of sugar, so it is not too sweet. The hot honey topping is magic! And if you can have some cilantro lime chili crisp from Trader Joe's that's an amazing addition!

Cornbread is a quickbread and is made with the muffin method. Combine dry, combine wet, add mixins and wet to dry, and fold together. Bake in hot fat in a cast iron pan for a crispy crust.

Scrape the batter into the hot pan, press corn on top followed by sliced jalapenos. After 30 minutes of baking, drizzle with hot honey and the chili crisp. Hungry yet?

Serve this cornbread with more hot honey and chili crisp on the side. It's moist, super flavorful, delicious, and will definitely steal the show from a bowl of chili!
