It’s hard to stop at just one serving of this, so if you have a hungry crowd coming, double the recipe! I love to bake cornbread in a cast iron skillet to get that crispy crust, but a 9" square baking pan will make good cornbread too.

  1. Set oven to 425 degrees F. Grease the bottom and ½ inch up the sides of 9" square baking pan; set aside. (Note: When using a 9" or 10" cast iron pan, grease it and place in the oven the last few minutes of your cornbread preparation so it’ll be piping hot when the batter goes in, make a nice crust on bottom and shorten baking time.)
  2. In medium mixing bowl stir together the flour, corn meal, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Make a well in the center of dry mixture; set aside.
  3. In another bowl beat the eggs. Add the buttermilk, oil, green chilies, optional jalapenos, and cheese, stirring well.
  4. Pour egg mixture all at once into dry mixture ; stir just until moistened.
  5. Spoon batter into prepared pan. Bake 20-25 minutes or til toothpick tests clean in center. (If you use a preheated cast iron skillet, baking time will be shortened to about 15 minutes.)
  6. Cool on wire rack. Cut square cornbread into 3 equal sections one direction, and then 4 equal sections the opposite direction to make 12 servings.

    Very Tasty!
    I used Jalapeno and a touch of honey instead of sugar.
    I've cooked/tasted this recipe!
    This is a variation

      Your wonderful recipe turned out great. I used tabasco instead of jalapenos, with extra sharp white cheddar. Yum.
