Flavorful Mexican Corn Bread Recipe

Flavorful Mexican Corn Bread Recipe

This tasty corn bread is easy to mix up. I serve it often with a meal or hearty bowl of soup as an alternative to rolls. Cheddar cheese makes it specially flavorful, and the diced peppers add nice color. —Esther Shank, Harrisonville, Virginia
