Spicy Sweet Cornbread

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Carrie A

Well, love peppers, and cheese, and well sweet cornbread. How can you go wrong. It's cheap, easy, and delicious! Great with chili or even a hearty bean soup. Also I usually make this amount to have left overs. It's wonderful by itself just smothered in butter. Surprisingly it is not that hot..a little spice with a little zing from the peppers being pickled

This is really very simple and very good. I enjoy making it in a mini muffin pan - excellent "pop-in-your-mouth" bites for Super Bowl Sunday!
