Congrats on your Week 17 Football pool win! I made a batch of this last night as the ingredients looked very interesting. I'm not much on jalapeno's but they added a good flavor to this cornbread. I used a 1/2 package of Jiffy mix and a 1/2 package of regular cornbread mix so it wouldn't be too sweet. I cooked it in my cast iron skillet and it turned out great.

Easy & perfect to accompany chili or soups. I cut the recipe in half and used 1 small box of Jiffy cornbread mix, but still used the full jalapeno. I liked the idea of layering the ingredients. The presentation was creative and made for pretty wedges. Thank you for your entry & good luck!

This was one of our favorite dishes from our sampling of the contest recipes. We really wouldn't change anything as far as ingredients goes, but in the future I will adjust the pan size. A smaller pan (8 inch spring form or an 8x8 square) would allow the cornbread to be taller and stay a little moister during baking. I made just as directed, except left cheese out of half for DH & DD to eat. I loved the layered idea and all the ingredients went really well together. Thanks for sharing your creation! Made & enjoyed for Fall 2010 Dining on a $ Contest.
