Mexican Cornbread

A great cornbread that is good with chili.  This makes a lot, so it is good for a crowd.

Cream together ½ cup of softened butter and 1 cup of granulated sugar (the sugar can be reduced, if desired)



  • 4 eggs
  • 1 -16 ounce of cream corn (my can was 14.75 ounces, so that is what I used)
  • ½ cup grated Monterey Jack Cheese
  • 1-1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese -- I used the 4 cheese Mexican Blend and so I just added the whole package to equal 2 cups, which is called for in the recipe
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • 1 box Jiffy cornbread mix
  • Optional -- 2-4 jalapeno peppers, finely chopped (I used 2)

Mix all of the above very well and pour into a 9 x 13" baking dish that has been sprayed with cooking spray.  Bake 40-45 minutes in a preheated 350° oven.
