  5. Fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, stirring just until combined.
  6. Fold in the cheese and salsa.
  7. Divide the batter between the two pans.
  8. Place in center of oven and bake for 30 minutes, until center is firm and top is golden.

This was a cornbread with the surprise of the heat of the salsa and cayenne. Great with our Tomatillo Stew and will also be great with the Tomatillo Soup tonight. Will make this recipe again as I love to grow tomatillos

I don't usually tamper with a bread recipe, but in this case decided to halve it, since the amounts were even. I baked in a 9 inch pan for about 25 minutes. This is a fluffy bread with a nice browned top. The flavors are fairly subtle and add a nice peppery zing. It will go nicely with the Wintertime Chili I've made for dinner. Roxygirl
