Jalapeño Cheddar Cornbread

I made these jalapeño cheddar cornbread muffins to go with Meredith Cranch‘s Dumbo Gumbo. We were celebrating LSU’s victory over Alabama and chicken and sausage gumbo with cornbread seemed just the thing!

This recipe is super easy!


You’ll need:

Cornbread mix (I used two packages of corn kits)
1 and 1/3 cups of milk
2 eggs
Shredded cheddar cheese
Diced jalapeños

** if you use a different cornbread mix the ingredients and baking times may vary. Use the directions on your package**

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Combine the cornbread mix, eggs and milk.


Add a spoonful of jalapeños.


Add a couple handfuls of cheddar cheese.


Mix it all together.


Spray muffin pan generously with nonstick spray. Then put mix into pan.


Top with extra cheddar. Bake for 15min.


They will smell delicious!

Now the jalapeño cheddar cornbread muffins are ready to be paired with Dumbo Gumbo!

Let’s celebrate!

Cranch’s awesome gumbo. I asked her secret… She replied Tony Chachere’s.
