Mexican Cornbread

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by PickledSeeds

I got this recipe from a co-worker, she would bring this cornbread for potlucks and it would get gobbled up. I could make a meal out of this! I know there are lots of Mexican cornbread recipes out there but this is one of the best I've tried. I highly recommend using an iron skillet for this.

I have been saving this recipe in my cookbook for just the right time. I knew it would be good, and that is an understatement. This is absolutely delicious! I love the moistness and flavor. I decreased the peppers to 2 Tab. in fear of it being too hot, but it is perfect - just a nice kick. I may even be tempted to try 3 Tab. next time :-) This is definitely a keeper!
