Review Pinterest recipe - Green Chili Cornbread

We had pinto beans tonight and I needed an awesome cornbread recipe to go along with them.  My Honey makes the most amazing pot of beans and I make the cornbread.  It's usually just plain ole cornbread, but I wanted to make a wow one this time.  I found one on Pinterest that looked really good.  It is found here:

This cornbread beats all other cornbreads.  I did make a couple additions.  I added about 1/2 cup extra cheese (mixture of cheddar and pepper jack).  I also added 2 chopped fresh jalepenos with the fresh Hatch chilis.  I only had some fresh corn on the cob, so i cut off the corn and it made it so much better.  Gave it a little more sweetness.  I only used about 1/8 cup of Splenda instead of the sugar.  One more little change I made because it is what I had on hand is instead of sour cream, I had some homemade ranch.  I used a cup of the ranch and only used 1 1/4 cup of milk.  I might add some onions next time.  You must try this for your next cornbread needs.
Green Chile Cornbread


  • 1 cup plus 2 Tbsp cornmeal
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) softened unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 3/4 cups milk
  • 2 cups of chopped, roasted green chiles (Anaheim or Hatch) (2 7-ounce cans of whole green chiles, drained, chopped)
  • 1 cup corn (frozen is fine)
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese (4 ounces)


1 Preheat oven to 400°F. Grease a 8x12 inch baking dish.
2 In a large bowl mix the cornmeal, flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda. In a separate bowl, beat the softened butter and sugar. Beat the sour cream and eggs to the butter sugar mixture. Add the milk and the dry ingredients, a third at a time and alternating wet/dry. Mix in the green chiles, corn, and shredded cheese. Pour mixture into prepared baking dish.
3 Bake for 35 minutes, until top is browned, the center springs back when pressed down, and a skewer inserted into the center comes out clean. Let cool almost completely before serving.
Makes about 12 serving pieces.
