I got this recipe from one of The State Fair of Texas cookbooks. It's old and I couldn't find the year, but I started collecting these cookbooks when I got married (30 years ago). This is very good cornbread and it goes good with a big pot of pinto beans. The person that submitted the recipe is Debbie Hamilton from Garland, Texas. Hats off to her!
"This was great! I used corn muffin mix so I made a few changes to the recipe. I added 2/3 cup of milk, about half jar of medium salsa, and randomly added chunks of Colby jack cheese (just for the cheese lover in me!) It was delicious!!!"- jena82388

Momiitz 9 months agoI've made this recipe a couple of times. It's a great easy cornbread recipe. I substituted cheddar because I did not have the longhorn cheese. It came out great. It's awesome with chili.

vlcasey 2 years agoThis was so moist and sweet. I added a little chili powder sprinkled on top just for color and it gave it a little kick also. Thanks for this recipe.

Marti57575 2 years agoTasty dish. I only had one box of mix, so I had to adjust the recipe down. Made a 9' square pan. Good, not as dry as others I have tried.

LovetocookKate 3 years agoThis was FABULOUS, I ate this once in New Mexico at a restaurant and this recipe was just as good! It was everything i wanted it to be, next time i might add a little more jalepeno to give just a pinch more spice.
dbryso 4 years agoIt needs something... i'm not sure what though... It was a little dry... I made it with some off brand corn bread mix because the store just happened to be out of Jiffy... i think that was part of the problems.
