Flavorful with chiles, this would go great with ham & beans or grilled steak.

A very nice bread recipe. I made the cornbread as per directions, except I cooked it in 2 cast iron skillets with a little fat. I put the skillets in the oven and got the fat very hot, then added the cornbread mixture. The bottom of the cornbread turns out crisp, which helps hold it's shape when cut. We absolutely loved the flavor of this cornbread. Spicy and totally irresistable. Thanks for sharing this keeper.
