Jalapeño Corn Bread

I adore corn bread. On a colder day, which we have had a few of this past week, there is nothing more comforting than a bowl of soup, chili and/or corn bread.

This is a great spin to traditional corn bread. It has a kick of heat from the jalapeños, but don’t worry, even this spicy whimp can handle it! It is actually a perfect compliment to the corn bread!

If you are looking for a great side dish to serve to your company, crowd or for a colder day, then look no further! You will love this one!

    I'm catering an event and I wanted to make this recipe because it looks delicious! However, I want to try to make as much as possible ahead of time. Do you think you can make the batter the night before and leave it uncooked in the fridge over night? Thanks for your help!
