    Very Flavorful!

    NANCY CHAPMAN from Yorba Linda, CA

    This is a very flavorful cornbread. I cut down on the jalapeno a little because I thought that it might be too spicy. However, I think I am going to make it with the full recipe. It is a simple, delicious dish that goes well with just about anything!

    Lovely cornbread

    Miss Diaz from

    I made some little adjustments like extra milk and oil instead of water,a cream style corn instead of the whole ones, garlic salt instead of regular and no sugar. This cornbread was the best I've ever tasted. It's now officially on the "FEEL GOOD" food list.We are definitely hooked.

    Great cornbread recipe.

    Elsa Johnson from CEDAR PARK, TX

    This was a delicious cornbread. It was very moist, my family loved it. I omitted the sugar, as we do not like sweet cornbread.

    Instead of adding whole corn, cream style corn is good with sharp cheddar cheese, My mother and I bake this cornbread. It is also good with greens.

    I have made this corn bread before and always served it with southwestern chili. It is always a favorite. I made a slightly different version using creamed corn and it was very moist. Either way is great.

    This is an outstanding but subtle blend of cheese, corn and the tangy tast of the jalapeno pepper. I loved it and will use it as a topper for chili pie.

    Jalapeno Cheesy Corn Bread

    LEIGHANN MALONEY from COLORADO SPRINGS, CO

    This should be one of the first quick breads one thinks of when serving a hearty soup or chili. The cheese and jalapenos are strong enough to hold their own and the corn bits are a pleasant surprise.

    Awesome Corn Bread

    Mike from Queen Creek, AZ

    Just got done with this for dinner. I made a pot of beans with ham, and this topped it off perfectly! I did have to cook it about 45 minutes. I added mexican corn instead of plain corn and it was a good contrast with the jalapeno peppers I added. I also only used 2 tbl spoons of the jalapenos as well. I reduced the milk to 3/4 cup and added some sour cream to make up the rest. Great recipe, will make it every time i make chili or beans!

    Spicy and Different

    Patricia Chambers from COLTON, CA

    My family and I love this corn bread. I use Mexican style corn, instead of just plain corn inaddition to the other listed ingredients. This corn bread is very good. It goes very well with fried fish, salads, and baked potatoes. I have served it at dinner parties and it never fails that someone will want the recipe. People love this type of corn bread. Plus, it's spicy and different, but good.

    Perfect Compliment

    Toni Lang from PATCHOGUE, NY

    This is a great Cornbread recipe. It goes well with chili, scrambled eggs, soups and stews. I used fresh, blanched corn that I scraped off the cob. It took a little longer but it was worth it.

    VERY GOOD CORN BREAD

    Lonnie Battistoni from HAMBURG, NY

    This is very quick & easy to whip up. I used Carnation Evaporated milk inplace of "milk" and used hot pepper cheese instead of jalapenos. It was a great tasting switch from our usual crackers that we have with chili. Very good!

    Delicious!

    Kerrie Smith from

    I made this, using the suggestion from another reviewer, to substitute sour cream for the milk. It was absolutely delicious! They came out a little bit crumbly, so I think next time, I'll do half sour cream, half milk, but I will definitely be making these again.

    Great recipe, remember to use Carnation Canned Milk in this recipe too...can also add pimento for one more color. Use green chiles if jalapeno is not to everyone's liking in your family.
