DH made this to go with our dinner last night and I couldn't wait to come on to rate it. We LOVE this bread and we have made a LOT of differant cornbread recipes. The addition of the chili powder (which worried me when I saw the amount but turned out to be perfect) just threw this over the top. Realized after we started that I didn't have the corn kernels but it was still awesome. Dh is sending me to the store today to buy the corn so we can make this again, he's thinking of even adding some chopped jalapenos to it. Me, I wouldn't change a thing. So pleased that I can claim to be the first to find and rate this little gem.
