Wow, this is indeed spicy, but in a very nice way! :) It has a great cornbread texture-dense and soft with a cheesy crust and the taste is so yummy! I luv how the onion, chili, bell pepper, corn and garlic (I used fresh) go so well together and make for a fruity yet hot treat. I decided to make the recipe into muffins as I wanted to serve them with a soup (so everyone could have an individual bread) and this way everything was baked through after 12 minutes. THANKS SO VERY MUCH for sharing this lovely recipe with us! Made and reviewed as the second recipe for my baby during Fall PAC 09.
