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!!!"

I'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.

This 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.

Looks and smells as good as it tastes. Great right out of the skillet with ham and pinto beans and delicious the next morning with butter and honey!

Tasty 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.
