Southwest Green Chile Corn Bread
This is hands-down THE best cornbread that I make/have eaten. Whenever I serve it people rave over it; I'm always sharing this recipe!! It comes from Austin Entertains - The Junior League of Austin cookbook. Next time you make chili or ribs or any type of BBQ, PLEASE make this cornbread to go with it!!
1 c. (2 sticks), butter, softened
3/4 c. sugar
1 c. flour
1 c. yellow cornmeal
2 Tbl baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 1/2 c. cream-style corn
1/2 c. chopped green chiles, canned
1/2 c. shredded Cheddar cheese
1/2 c. shredded Monterey Jack cheese
Preheat oven to 325F
Beat the butter and sugar in a mixing bowl until creamy. Add the eggs 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in a mixture of the flour, cornmeal, baking powder and salt. Add the corn, green chiles and cheese and mix well. Spoon into a greased 9X9 inch baking pan. Bake for 50 minutes. Let sit 10 minutes before cutting into. Enjoy!
