Our office had a "halloween" party today (read as excuse for food:p). Since I have been asked by multiple people for the recipe for my mexican cornbread, I thought I'd share it here too.

1 cup butter, melted
1 cup white sugar
4 eggs
1 can cream corn
1 onion, finely chopped
1 can diced green chiles
can jalapenos (add more or less depending on how much heat you want)
1 cup shredded cheddar/monterrey jack cheese
1 cup cornmeal (I use cup each of white and yellow)
1 cup flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 300 degrees.

In a large bowl beat together butter and sugar. Beat in one egg at a time. Add in corn, onion, chiles, jalapenos, and cheese.

In a another bowl combine together cornmeal, flour, baking powder, and salt. Stir into the wet mixture.

Pour into greased 13x9 pan and bake for 1 hour or until toothpick comes out clean.

We were at a chili cookoff yesterday with lots of different types of cornbread, but not this one. I am curious on how the cheese cooks into the mixture. When you cut the bread, does it string out or does it cook down and you just get the flavor? It sounds very yummy!

It just cooks down, not stringy at all. It does give the cornbread a very dense consistency though - very moist.

It sounds good. I can't wait to try it.
