Roasted Jalapeno and Cheese Cornbread

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Elly in Canada

This cornbread is best served freshly baked. The roasted peppers provide a light heat, a good strong cheddar is best for full flavour. I sometimes add two tablespoons of finely chopped onion along with the peppers. Source: Homemakers magazine
