This is not your typical cornbread recipe! When I first saw that the ingredients called only for 1/2 cup cornmeal and no additional flour, I suspected that this may very well be more of a "spoonbread" texture. This cheesy cornbread does have excellent flavor! The green chilies are a great addition. Upon cooling slightly, I was able to cut into squares and serve with our Boulder Black Bean Soup. However, I would suggest eating with a fork for best results. I used a 8x8" sq pan to bake which worked perfectly. Thanks so much, HELady!
