In this post I am sharing how to make easy Southern Style Spicy Mexican Cornbread.
It is highly likely that you may have had Mexican cornbread, or at least seen it before. If you haven’t…well honey you need to get your cast iron skillet out and heat up the oven cause we’re gonna make some.
Mexican cornbread is the perfect way to spice things up with a side of bread at dinner. Of course, I’d be happy with a slice as my dinner. It’s so delicious!
If you’re looking for more than just a bread recipe…use this batter as the base to create a casserole style meal with the addition of seasoned ground beef.
Does Mexican cornbread need to be refrigerated? Mexican cornbread will stay fresher longer if stored in the refrigerator.
Easy Mexican Cornbread Recipe
Mexican cornbread is a tad spicy but you can control the level of spiciness to suit your own tastes. I’m a bit of a wimp so I do remove the ribs and seeds from the fresh jalapeno peppers and opt for the mild green chilies.
I do enjoy spicy foods and this has more than enough heat for me. I add colorful sweet chili peppers that have no heat at all for additional interest….cause they look pretty in the cornbread.
While completely optional…I also top the cornbread with a few pickled jalapeno slices, just for visual interest and it looks really good once baked.
