Barefoot Bloggers: Jalapeño Cheddar Cornbread

Jalapeno Cheddar Cornbread Collage


I'm really loving these non-baking/non-sweet Barefoot Contessa recipes. This week, Sabrina and Alexander of Cooking with the Kids (how adorable is their header?) chose Ina's Jalapeño Cheddar Cornbread. Awesome pick guys, awesome!

I tried a jalapeño cornbread recipe a few years ago to make a special stuffing for Thanksgiving, and I remember it being a little, well, fussy.  So I was pleasantly surprised when this one whipped up almost as easily as the little blue box (you know the one, don't pretend you don't).  It smelled awesome as it cooked, and Bill (gotta give him props again this week, he did the shopping for this one and helped throw it together) was circling the kitchen before it had even gone in the oven.

It tasted fantastic warm and almost as good the next day when I took it to work.  One of the coworkers made a special stop into my office to thank me and tell me he was taking a piece home to his wife.  I'm not sure if she'll thank either one of us since she's on a diet, but it was a sweet thought, right?

My only regret is that I didn't think to throw it together for the 4th of July party a little earlier in the week.  Someone brought a pot of what he called smokehouse beans, and that would have been a match made in heaven.

You can find a link to the recipe here, and as always, don't forget to visit the other Barefoot Bloggers to see what they thought of the recipe!

Love the picture at the top of your post! Very cool. Your cornbread looks super tasty. I was thinking the same thing about why I didn't make it for the 4th. Oh well, live and learn!

I should have made it for the 4th too...oops!

Thanks all! For anyone looking, www.bighugelabs.com does the photo montage and uses one off your computer. So it'll work with any of the hosting sites.

This looks so good. My hubby and I moved the day this was due and I just didn't have enough time to get it done. I was super bummer too cause it looks and sounds so good! I will make it though. Will just have to be for another time!
Yours looks great!
