Cheesy Spicy Cornbread!

This is a yummy, easy, savory recipe for cornbread! It's also really good with a can of drained corn, but I have to omit for DH's sake. I like to add a bit of salt because the jiffy mix is a little sweet. I also add 2 tablespoons of flour since I live at high altitude. I've made this different ways, using red onions or green onions, both ways were delish...go with what you like best! Note: If mixture is too dry, just add a splash of milk to moisten. Recipe updated to include milk.

This recipe is great! I used a can of extra hot rotel and it was definitely on the spicy side, I will definitely tone it down next time. I also used mini muffin cups and they came out nice and crispy. I will certainly make these again. Thanks KPD!
