Jalapeno Cornbread from LeRuth’s 20th Anniversary Cookbook
Updated: Jan 4
Cornbread is a very popular dinner accompaniment here in Arkansas. But it is not that same sweet cornbread that you get from a Jiffy mix. One version you find often in restaurants is a Jalapeno Cornbread. Here is a recipe taken from LeRuth’s 20th Anniversary cookbook.
1 cup Corn Meal
1/4 cup Flour
2 teaspoons Salt
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
1/4 cup Salad Oil
1 cup Cream Style Corn
2 or more chopped Jalapeno Peppers
1 cup grated Cheddar Cheese
1/2 cup chopped Green Onions (sauteed in a little oil)
Mix ann ingredients together. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 to 30 minutes.
I will soon be adding a store to my website. You will be able to order autographed cookbooks, spice mix, shirts and kitchen towels.
