This recipe is very good! The cornbread rises well and has good texture although I would hope for it to be more fluffy. The jalapeno flavor is mild so for those loving pepper flavor, they should increase the amount. Thank you.
terrific recipe - I doubled this for a work function, and received good comments. the buttermilk provides a nice texture - but i too found the amount of jalapenos too low. I had no fresh peppers, so i added 1 (4 oz) can of jalapenos and 1 (4 oz) can of regular chopped green chilis into a food processor, then into the recipe. The result was aromatic and fluffy - very nice!
Pretty tasty, but a little bit dry. I couldn't really taste the jalapeno.
