I adapted this from the Jalapeno Cornbread in Ann Hodgman's Beat This Cookbook (which is a MUST BUY!) The low fat suggestions are mine; I also doubled the cheese and added the onions, scallions, garlic, and hot sauce. The orinal recipe calls for canned jalapenos only, but I like to use fresh and add some extra color with serranos. Also, the original recipe calls for a 9X13 pan, but I found that it was too flat, hence the smaller pan and longer cooking time. I haven't tried it yet, but some crumbled cooked bacon or real bacon bits would taste really good.
