Yummy! Used green chiles instead of jalapenos since I had that on hand. Very moist and good!

Now this is good eatin'!!!!! This is the best, most moist, wonderful Mexican cornbread!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I used a sharp cheddar cheese in this and I used pickled jarred jalapenos, that I chopped fine, which gave it such good flavor!!! I served this with Paula's Slow Cooker Pinto Beans and it is the best cornbread I have ever had and will always make this one now especially when I make beans!! Thanks so much for posting!
