Loved using the salsa-cheese option making this a unique and tasty way to enjoy corn bread! I cut the recipe in half and it still turned out very nice and as I did not have cheddar cheese used a sandwich slice of Pepper Jack. Thanks for the post.
This is a great cornbread recipe! I've never used brown sugar or vanilla when making cornbread and it added a wonderfully rich dimension to the flavor. Served with some spicy hot chili and really enjoyed - thanks for posting the recipe!
