Cornbread With Cheese, Jalapenos and Pecans

Recipe by DailyInspiration

A great version of an old-time favorite. Love the idea of pecans combined with jalapenos, cream-style corn and Monterey Jack cheese.

I was looking for a recipe that included corn meal, jalapenos, pecans- this one seemed to fit. I took the option of baking in a skillet- and the bottom of the bread was soaked with the vegetable oil, making it mushy/distasteful. I wouldn't use the vegetable oil or might use a different dish to bake next time.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spread oil into a 13x9x2 inch baking pan or ovenproof skillet; place in oven until hot (be careful not to burn). Meanwhile, in a mixing bowl, combine the cornmeal, sugar, baking soda, and salt. Stir in eggs, buttermilk, corn, cheese, jalapenos and pecans. Add butter; stir just until blended.
  2. Carefully remove pan from oven; pour batter into pan. Bake for 45 minutes or until golden brown. Cut into squares. Serve warm.
