Jalapeno Cheddar Cornbread

I am pretty sure I could this cornbread every single day – with every single meal – okay mainly  – chili, pulled pork, etc.

Jalapeno Cheddar Cornbread

All I want to do is talk to you about my big news…but that will just have to wait until Friday Feedings…but those of you who follow me on Instagram already know!

A couple of weeks I posted a pic of having some awesome Fiesta Chili for dinner and then wanted more chili so I had my Cream Cheese Chicken Chili a week later. I mean why not since it was a cold rainy day and it was predicted to be Snowmaggedon in the south – which in Birmingham was a flop! But the bowl of chili was just what we needed to stay warm.

This Jalapeno Cheddar Cornbread is sweet and spicy and very addicting!!

But anytime I make chili I have to make cornbread. It’s like peanut butter and jelly – they just go hand and hand together. One of the things I love about cornbread is if you have a basic recipe you can do so many different things with it. Sometimes I like to make it an herb cornbread and other times it needs a little more spice hence the jalapeno cheddar cornbread.
