Theme at I Heart Cooking Clubs this week is all about "Yellow", where we are currently cooking from Rick Bayless's recipes. What is yellow and yummy? Corn, of course! But in this case, it is cornmeal. Beautiful yellow cornmeal turns into a scrumptious yummy cornbread, and it is so easy! This recipe of Rick Bayless's Cornbread, uses Poblano chiles, which I can never find over here, so I just omitted that. And he uses only 1 jalapeno chile for the full recipe, but I used 4 jalapenos for half the recipe. I'm a fan of jalapenos!
Golden and beautiful cornbread.
These cornbread are really delicious!
It has a moist, soft texture and very tasty. And I love the bits of green jalapenos in the golden yellow cornbread. I ate one while still warm, and it was so good, moist from the cheese and the smell of the roasted jalapenos is very nice, with a slight hint of spiciness. This recipe is a keeper! We ate this with some mushroom soup for a simple lunch. If you are a fan of cornbread with jalapenos, make a batch, you will be glad that you did! I will definitely be making this again as a base recipe for cornbread, perhaps with some onions and chives, lovely! And with some homemade chilis, even better!
