In this recipe adapted from Cooking Light, bacon and chipotle chiles give corn bread double the smokiness to offset the buttermilk's tang. Would make a delicious addition to a corn bread stuffing!

The bacon and chipotles are an excellent addition to corn bread. I finely chopped the chilies, but might consider blending them even finer if serving the bread to those not fond of the heat. This was a nice side for some soup and a salad on a cold, rainy night.
