Moist and crusty, with tasty flecks of crawfish tail meat and zippy peppers, this is a tempting, distinctive corn bread. I like to serve it warm alongside soups and stews for a memorable lunch or supper. -Eloise Waler, Rayville, Louisiana

  1. In a skillet, saute onion and green pepper in 1 tablespoon oil until tender. Remove from the heat. Stir in jalapenos; set aside.
  2. In a bowl, combine cornmeal, baking powder, salt and baking soda. In another bowl, beat the eggs, milk and remaining oil; stir into the dry ingredients just until blended. Stir in the corn, cheese, green onions, crawfish and reserved jalapeno mixture. Pour into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan.
  3. Bake at 400° for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cut into squares. Serve warm. Refrigerate leftovers. Yield: 15 servings.
Editor's Note: Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.

"Very good! This bread is a real conversation-maker. The first time people taste it, they want to know the "secret" flavor."
