Paula Deen's Mexican Cornbread

Paula Deen’s Mexican Cornbread

Paula Deen’s Mexican Cornbread is really yummy cornbread. The jalapenos add just the right amount of heat. Not overly hot, but with a nice kick.

It’s also not overly sweet. Just plain good. Great with chili.

If you’ve ever tried to make cornbread and it didn’t rise correctly, don’t worry. This turns out beautifully every time. I use pickled peppers from my garden.

I made this in my 8 inch cast iron skillet I’ve had for many years. Cornbread is the only thing I use this pan for and wouldn’t think of making cornbread any other way.

I guess that’s the southern in me.
