This zesty cornbread recipe is packed with green chiles and pepper jack cheese to spice up a classic recipe (and your life)! Plus, a video! Exciting.
Which was…confusing. Like, how is the cheesecake sassy? I mean, it’s an object; a thing. It doesn’t have a personality. It’s not like Siri where it can sass back all it wants. It can’t throw shade.
It’s weird, right?? It’s not just me?
I feel like I really strongly dislike human terms being used to describe food.
But, anyway, let’s get back on point and talk about this sass-less, zesty cornbread.
Cornbread is my underrated comfort food, meaning, it’s one of my all-time favorite comfort foods that I tend to forget about.
I’m making it my spring resolution (it’s totally a thing) to make cornbread more often. It might seem anticlimactic, but considering how big a role food plays in my life, it’s pretty significant.
And, this particular cornbread recipe–oh, ohhh, oh. It’s a zesty winner.
Homemade cornbread is actually super easy to make!
Don’t get me wrong, I’m definitely a fan of the boxed stuff. Jiffy makes a good corn muffin (especially when a little honey and butter is slathered all over it), and it definitely works in a jiff.
However, if you’ve got the cornmeal and a few extra minutes to spare, this homemade cornbread recipe is totally worth it! While it might not be as simple as opening a box, it is still really simple.
